Explain it to me. Is it socialism to lend money to a failing company and to expect diligence from that company to ensure repayment? Is it socialism for the new stockholders to force those failing businesses to change their previous ways of overcompensating their upper echelon for negative performances? Is it socialism for stockholders to step in and force them into reasonable compliance when they show disregard or incompetence in the process?
If so, are Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, student loans, farm subsidies and the like also socialism? And if that is so, since the thought of socialism drives parents to weep for their children, shouldn’t we be taking to the streets in the form of some sort of social protest?
I mean, right after the “Jerry Springer” show.
