Socialism is NOT whatever the hell this "sovereign citizen" stuff is.

Socialism is instead a democratization of the benefits of our collective labor.

Rather than permit the kings and nobles, billionaires, athletes, movie stars, politicians, and pop idols to take the lion's share - we use it to invest in our society, our collective well being.

You work? I do too. And so do the clerks at the gas stations and grocery stores - the brick layers and the office workers - we're all just working a job for a living.

For the ones that can't or don't want to work - Setting aside the murky definition of "work" - I'd rather they be fed, clothes, housed and warm, because it means safer lives for everyone.
