No matter the solution, real or imaginary, its always the same absurd assumption, the left wants a socialist dictatorship.
We don’t. The vast majority of the American left is against dictatorships and likes a economy that is a mix of private and public owned, but mostly private owned, and based on market forces, not planned.
This depends on what your definition of “socialist government” is. If your definition is a government led by a party that is pro-socialism, you totally can. For example if Jeremy Corbyn was elected PM of the UK, the UK wouldn’t suddenly become a dictatorship and the process of making it one wouldn’t be easy. And here in the US were Sanders to be elected President we wouldn’t become a dictatorship either and the process of turning us into one is near impossible with our current structures short of declaring martial law.
On the other hand if what you actually mean is “state socialism” like the USSR or China its actually backwards from what you said. These were dictatorships that imposed state socialism (in practice state capitalism since the elites profited off the workers).
And also its important when having these fever dreams of a communist take over that the self-proclaimed socialists in office in the US are all Democratic Socialists which unlike the pro-dictatorship/revolution Marxist/Leninist that you think they are actually support implementing socialism through the democratic system which means you the US won’t convert from capitalism to socialism without a super majority of citizens supporting it. And if the 2020 Democratic primary was any indication, the fact that Biden beat Sanders shows that the average Democrat voter isn’t ready for socialism.
If Capitalism was so bad and Socialism so good then why aren’t the caravans of migrants headed from here to Venezuela? Why aren’t you among them?
Okay, I’ll need your help with this one because I don’t know how your brain works… how did you read:
and hear “I love socialism, hate capitalism, and want the US to be socialist!”?
