Democratic Socialism

A political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

Examples of democratic socialism in the US are public schools, the postal system, fire and police departments, public parks, infrastructure like roads, highways and bridges, municipal power and water systems, and social security.

What's so frightening about democratic socialism? Canada, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, and the UK are all quite happy with it. We have far better health care than you do in the US, a much higher minimum wage, and, in most cases, a higher standard of living. It also prevents organizations like the NRA and people like the Koch and Walton families from taking control. Want to make America great again? Make it a democratic socialist country!

Snowflakes

"When people call you a "snowflake" just remember they're quoting Fight Club, a satire written by a gay man about how male fragility causes men to destroy themselves, resent society, and become radicalised, and that Tyler Durden isn't the hero but a personification of the main character's mental illness, and that his "snowflake" speech is a dig at how fascists use dehumanising language to breed loyalty from insecure people.

So basically people who say "snowflake" as an insult are quoting a domestic terrorist who blows up skyscrapers because he's insecure about how good he is in bed."
