The Constitution limits the power of the government over the individual.
Socialism limits the power of the individual & makes government all powerful for the benefit of the collective. The individual doesn’t matter. The problem with that is is ends in dictatorship, not utopia. It lends toward an all powerful leader that is basically a king.
Economically socialism is a disaster for the entire population except the ruling class. All others are serfs.
Constitutional Capitalism is far superior, as it lifts the greatest number of people out of poverty. It’s different from Capitalistic Oligarchy, where we are presently heading into, but will likely end in a China type system that is a Capitalistic Oligarchy Dictatorship preaching communism but practicing Capitalistic Oligarchy Dictatorship.
It has the parts of communism that persecutes & outlaws religion, & imposes on the populace absolute obedience, submission, & forced praise to the State, with severe limits on freedom of expression & speech, punishes any & all dissent there, and coupled with Capitalistic Oligarchy Dictatorship, where we are headed.
The social media companies of the US helped the Chinese to set up the surveillance of what will be eventually every moment of every day for every person there, or for short, the social credit system. The US social media companies involved committed a crime for which they should be held accountable.
Every day one must log on to the government website & say something in praise of the state, the leadership, & the country or lose credit score. A low score carries severe penalties, a progression of loss of the better jobs, then loss of any job, travel privilege’s, etc. eventually ending in prison work camps.
Things that lower your score: Attending a religious service, failing to praise the state, saying anything the state doesn’t like, playing too much video games, & many other violations.
They will impose that same system here if it continues unopposed & the indoctrination of our youth in schools continues. We WILL lose our freedom.
It has already begun, as some banks are going to start turning down loans or allowing people to open an account with low social credits. LOOK at how many ways you can now lose your job or your business if you dare to say disagree with the left, speak your mind, or refuse to submit to some new rule the left invents each week, regardless how absurd or unconstitutional.
Soon you won’t get a loan, a job, or be allowed to travel, buy, or sell if you have a low social credit score, just like the system social media companies set up in China. They did it there, they will do it here…
