Socialist millennials can’t be bothered with nuance. “‘Real’ socialism works, but it has never been tried before,” every millennial socialist ever.
Elizabeth Warren has just proposed the next step toward the American experiment in socialism. Standing up government run companies to directly complete with private companies to “increase competition”. I envision this “competition” looking a lot like the post office. Make it illegal to compete with the State run company in the interest of more competition. Watch it fail, and blame someone on the other side of the aisle for its demise. Then suggest “we just didn’t do it right that time, we will get it right next time”. There is nothing better than watching a political machine blame itself for its own failures and having the electorate gobble it up.
