dare to call it socialism…//It’s Time to Bring Back the Corporate Death Penalty

This needs rephrasing as ‘socialism’…

While the human death penalty has largely disappeared in the world and is fading in the U.S. (a good thing), the corporate death penalty needs a revival.The corporate death penalty, widespread in the 19th century, is a political and economic Darwinian process that weeds bad actors out of the business ecosystem to make room for good players.

 A new socialism

The legacy of bolshevism has made life difficult for ‘socialists’. And the attempts to coopt the terms for social democratic content doesn’t help either.
We have redefined terms and made them clear and explicit, e.g. ‘democratic market neo-communism’.


A silly but common talking point on the far right is that if Sen. Bernie Sanders and his political protégé, Congresswoman-Elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, like socialism so much, they should spend time in Venezuela—a country that has been plagued by everything from food shortages to hyperinflation to appalling crime rates.
