What is it that people LOVE about Socialism/Communism? Why can’t people throughout the United States and Europe get enough of stealing from their neighbors in order to support their own well-being? Is it really all about daydreams of Star Trek? In an attempt to answer this question, Galactic Imperium’s Sociology Division recently sat down with best-selling author and prominent Sociologist Junie Crandikooks in order to provide an unfiltered look into the world of Socialism, Leftism, Statism and Progressivism.
Socialism, a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that production, distribution and exchange should be owned or regulated by the State, is also related to the Marxist theory of utilizing State manipulation in order to create a social state in which capitalism is overthrown and communism is realized.
“We live in a world where sometimes we as people can feel very small. Socialism and Communism is a way for the individual unit to be a part of something much bigger and much more glorious than they could ever hope to possibly be on their own,” Crandikooks explained. “Furthermore, it’s a philosophy that nearly everyone can get behind. For example, while many Christians understand that one of their commandments specifically speaks against theft – they can justify their State forcibly taking things from their friends and neighbors because they aren’t actually the ones committing the act.”
Crandikooks also noted that, “Some detractors of socialism and communism always point to North Korea, Nazi Germany’s brand of National Socialism or Venezuela as examples of why Socialism is a threat to the world today. However, what they don’t realize is that it’s the influence of capitalism that causes these places to fail. Any tiny little bit of capitalism or individuality can send terrible shock-waves throughout a socialistic structure. If only the State had properly liquidated all capitalistic influences and individualistic beliefs that create competition and friction, they would be thriving utopias today.”
When asked about the popular television drama of Star Trek, and if this fictional representation of Socialism is why so many have fallen in love with the idea, Crandikooks nodded emphatically. “Absolutely. The world of Star Trek has been carefully engineered to allow socialism/communism to flourish. It’s a picture of how the State, through the careful engineering of our own society, will doubtless cause socialism and communism to blossom into the wonderful paradise that we see in this science fiction drama.”
“We see a lot of tension in our communities today between the left and the right because it comes down to individuality,” Crandikooks said with a smile. “We’ve already pretty much agreed that no matter which side of the fence we’re on, that it’s okay for the State to redistribute wealth and work to create economic equality. But we still have those seeds of individualism that are creating problems between the leftists, progressivists, conservatives and those on the right. I’m sure that if progressives can get in power – perhaps with someone like a Bernie Sanders – they will be able to force conformity and we will at last have peace.”
