And no, I don't just mean the government. Socialism is diametrically opposed to the interests of American people, and most socialists have a burning hatred for us. Americans have found themselves in conflict with socialists from Day 1. From assassinating one of our presidents in 1901, to sabotage of the war effort in World War II, to giving our nuclear weapons designs to an enemy in the 1940s, to being our main enemy during the Cold War, to trying to destroy American civilization in the present-day, socialists have always been enemies of the American people.
Now what is the root of this conflict? There's a couple of things.
Firstly, the interests of Americans and the interests of socialists (and the people who tend to gravitate to socialism) are diametrically opposed to one another. The continued survival of American civilization is dependent on the extraction of resources from foreign countries. However, this extraction is harmful to those countries and thus their people turn to communism in order to fight it. Our relationship with these countries is like that of a wolf and a sheep. We need to feed on sheep to survive, but many sheep have to die in order to feed us. This is a conflict that will never be resolved until the destruction of one or both of our civilizations. This is why we go to war so much.
Secondly, our culture is incompatible with socialism. We are individualistic, while socialism is collectivistic. We thus naturally find socialism to be repugnant.
Some socialists pretend that socialism would benefit Americans, preaching "worker solidarity" or some other Marxist slogan, but this is not the case. The only honest socialists are Maoist-Third-Worldists, as they acknowledge that our interests are diametrically opposed to that of communists.
Now what about American socialists? Surely they aren't anti-American, right? Wrong. The vast majority of American socialists are either a) recent immigrants who have not yet assimilated into American society and thus still cling to ideologies, like socialism, that they brought from their native lands, b) self-loathing college students, or c) black sheep who turn to socialism in order to spite the society they do not get along with.
Now I imagine a lot of people on this site will read "Socialism is anti-American" and reply "That's a good thing, right? Isn't America the root of all evil?". I would reply to this by saying that I can understand why people hatePost too long. Click here to view the full text.
