oz volvo for sale Q&A Review

Socialism is defined as vesting the control, ownership and means of production and distribution of capital in the community as a whole. Based on that definition, why is it so unpopular?

This letter was written by a former slave: White folks you can have your automobiles, paved streets and lights. You can have your buses, and street cars, and hot pavement and tall buildings cause I aint got no use for em no way. I tell you what I do want--I want my old cotton bed and the moonlight shining through the willow trees, and the cool grass under my feet while I run around catching lightening bugs. I want to feel the sway of the old wagon, going down the red, dusty road, and listening to the wheels groaning as they roll along. I want to sink my teeth into that old ash cake. White folks, I want to see the boats passing up and down the Alabammy river and hear the slaves singing at their work. I want to see dawn break over the black ridge and the twilight settle over the place spreading an orange hue. I want to walk the paths through the woods and see the rabbits and the birds and the frogs at night... But they took me away from that a long time ago. Weren't long before I married and had children, but don't none of em contribute to my support now. One of them was killed in the big war with German, and the rest is all scattered out--eight of em. Now I just live from hand to mouth. Here one day, somewhere else the next. I guess we all gonna die iffin this depression don't let us alone. Maybe someday I'll get to go home. They tell me that when a person crosses over that river, the Lord gives him what he wants. I don told the Lord I don't want nothing much---only my home, white folks. I don't think that's much to ask for. I suppose he'll send me back there. I been waiting a long time for him to call. Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers' Project, 1936-1938 Below are things former prisoners miss: 1. ,Free education and learning facilities. 2., A very structured day schedule. I tried to keep it after jail but it didn’t last long before I fell back into my chaotic life of having nothing structured or planned. 3. ,I liked that I felt secure. I wasn’t gonna starve. I wasn’t gonna freeze or die of exposure. I liked that I had nothing to worry about. But it wasn’t worth owning nothing and having nothing. It was boring as fuck. 4. ,Pinochle. Endless fucking games of pinochle. I did two years and played so much pinochle. I cant even get 4 people together to play out here. That’s the only thing I really miss. Besides not having any actual responsibility. 5. ,I can’t find most of the good commissary items anywhere. They had some really good mackerel in chili sauce, specific brands of instant coffee (Keefe, Bostons Best), some kind of Thai Noodles, chips etc. I have found Keefe coffee for sale on ebay, but at like 3x the price. Ridiculous. Bostons best is available but not the kind we had. That shit was awesome, and what got me drinking coffee. 6. ,Water pressure. It was cleansing. 7. ,There were a couple really hot guards, but I’m not sure if they were really hot or I was just sex deprived. I don’t think it’s worth it to go back and figure it out. 8. ,Not me but a family member was in prison for a few years and he said he misses the code a lot. (don’t touch my stuff and I won’t touch yours type thing). I assume it’s worse in some prisons (like on TV) but he said everyone generally kept to themselves or a tight group and conflicts only ever broke out for understandable reasons like someone repeatedly stealing food or harassing. He said if everyone in prison whilst free had the same decency as if they were in prison, then nobody would be in prison. 9. ,I haven’t been to prison but my Dad’s friend said he missed having food cooked for him. 10. ,I miss the camaraderie and forced social interaction. Left to my own devices, my introverted ass tends to be a hermit despite knowing social interaction is healthy and necessary. I also miss not having to worry about paying bills and receiving 3 meals per day without having to cook or go grocery shopping. 11 ,I missed the solitude of being alone. I did about 47 months, from age 19-23. I missed the feeling of coming home and everything was so new, I respected everything and was so thankful for a new start. Inside, I missed the brotherhood of those around me, that I ran with. The loyalty in there is something you don’t find out here. The learning and humility factor was awesome; it was good being tore down and built new. 12. ,I work with this guy who told me about and made me “prison soup.” He said he craves it all the time and makes it a few times a year. It’s macaroni noodles, melted cheese, a cut up slim Jim and jalapeño juice, all heated up and mixed together. Then it’s topped with crunched up Doritos. It’s SO good and I’ve made it multiple times since then and it will be the only way i eat macaroni from now on. 13. ,I am not an ex-convict but one of my brothers is. When he got out, my father didn’t wanted me to see him. I have to admit that I didn’t want to either, but after some time my father decided to meet him again and since I was worried I asked him to bring me with him. (He accepted.) We talked for a good while and he made some comments like: “Man, I miss the free food. It wasn’t the best but at least is better than mom’s food.” (His mother cheated on my father before he meet MY mother.) 14. ,The nice ass prison guard who… I hate to admit this… had to look up my ass on my first day. Welcome to Texas. The dude was actually my age. Early 20s. Friendly as fuck. The only nice guard in the whole place lol. Which is why he worked booking. 15. ,You are accountable for the things you say and do. 16., Was in a juvenile facility for 3 years, food much better than I feed myself now in college and the social hierarchy, as fucked as it was, could be comforting. I’m much less social nowadays so I guess I just miss being social in general. Also staff was pretty dope when they weren’t getting fired for breaking kids arms etc 17. ,Honestly, the food isn’t as bad as people say it is, it was one of my favorite parts and I wish I could eat some of that food again. 18. ,Had a few very good friends I made while there. People on the outside in general seem like they live in their own world for the most part, and are by deed more interested chasing material stuff then even trying to make friends or get to know their neighbors. 19. ,Not a felon but mom is. She was in for drug possession for a few years. The most frustrating part, the drug wasn’t even in her system. She has told me she misses the routine and not having to worry about running into people from her past. She also liked having a job – she’s disabled now. 20. ,Shabang chips. 21. ,Not an ex-con. Dad is, he says he missed having no rent and free food and free gym. 22. ,Playing spades. 23. ,I miss the friends I made in prison. Everyone was sober and there was no “game”. They aren’t the same people when you get out. 24. ,I do miss certain people. It’s a different sort of comradery than anywhere else I’ve ever been. Also I’m quite busy not and obviously was before I was down, so the free time to read and work out whenever was quite nice. Everything else kind of sucked. 25. ,Every one is (mostly) very respectful of everyone else. 26. ,Friendship, workout buddies, I learnt to dance (hip hop) there, and I can see how the lack of having to pay bills is nice. I miss some of those guys every day. 27. ,Not me – but my brother in law is out on home detention. And although he loves his parents very much – he mentioned to me quietly “I really miss only speaking to them once a week.” 28. ,I’m not an ex-con but my dad was, for drunk driving. Before then he was a very successful businessman but alcohol got him. When he came out he told me he missed the wardens because they were nice to him, they recognized he was a normal guy who fucked up. He missed the sense of everyone just trying to get through it together, and he only did a few months. On a side note, my dad was quite arrogant and always had to win. So he smuggled cannabis out of prison just to prove he could. Upon being released he wrapped a bit up and put it in his shampoo bottle so it would float to the top, just behind the label on the bottle neck. If he got caught? Another three months. But my dad had to take his win. 29. ,In prison there was more to do. I read 165 books in an 18 month period. I made a couple good friends. I even ran a DnD game for a while (cards as dice; 3.5 edition from memory kind of). I listened to a lot of stories. A lot were bullshit. Others were genuine, though. I gained a lot of perspective, and a degree of social confidence. But, I do not miss anything about prison. I grew from the experience, and I appreciate that, but seriously fuck prison. 30. ,A lot of guys can’t handle reintegrating into society after they’ve been in a while, it’s not that they miss how fun being locked up is, they just have years of living a certain way engrained in them. Whether it’s too much free/unstructured time or working with others, you sadly see a lot of repeat customers in the legal field. One guy got out after like 18 months and less than 3 weeks later got picked up again for pulling a shotgun on his neighbor for his dog shitting on his lawn. He genuinely didn’t see anything wrong with what he did as he didn’t load it, but unfortunately that doesn’t mean shit to the law. To him he was just negotiating from a position of strength with the neighbor, but he ended up getting hit with felon in possession of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, and a couple other ticky tacky charges they pile on. Some guys just get in trouble for no reason other than they have too much time and no one will hire them. They go from being assigned a job and have someone telling them when to wake up, when to go outside, when to eat, and then suddenly there’s no guidance at all. A couple guys I’d have to call them the morning of their court or probation to remind them even though I told them the day before to set their alarm. It’s extremely sad but with guys that got in the system at a young age it’s not uncommon to see a 40 year old man who lives like a teenager because he’s never had to make a decision about where to go or what to do. Something as simple as choosing a pair of socks to buy is a legitimate dilemma, one guy mentioned that specifically as the moment he realized he wasn’t used to having to make so many decisions. 30 Ex-Convicts Reminisce On What They Miss Most About Prison This writer said ,becoming a paraplegic, made his life more fulfilling: "Christopher, you had a very serious accident. You'll be on a ventilator the rest of your life and never move again." These were the words from my ,orthopedic surgeon, as he quickly exited the hospital room. One tear rolled down my cheek, and for some reason those words never really sunk in – yet I'll never forget them. I was stationed in Hawaii during my time in the Air Force, and I had broken my neck while doing front flips into the ocean. I landed on my head instead of my feet, and broke my fourth cervical vertebrae – which bent my spinal cord almost 90 degrees. Fortunately, I floated face up, but my friends couldn't hear me yelling until the waves washed me closer to shore. I laid on the beach for an hour and a half, in and out of shock, before the ambulance arrived. Next thing I remember was waking up to my parents looking down on me. Tears of joy came over me; I had never been so happy to see them in my entire life. They had received a call at midnight, and my mom was told: "Hurry, we're not sure he'll make it by the time you get here." With the help of my sister, they made a 14-hour trip within 24 hours of getting the call about my injury. So there I was, bed-bound, intubated and ,paralyzed from the shoulders down,. "Why me?" I never took life for granted, I was thankful for my abilities and appreciative of what God had given me in 22 short years of life. It's hard to come to terms with such a life-changing event. I lost 100 percent of my independence and bodily functions in a split second. But the sooner you learn to accept it, the sooner you can move on to a path of some sort of recovery. So, this is my journey. Before surgery could take place, doctors had to realign my spine. This was accomplished using a halo (a medical device that screws into the skull at four different locations), which had 40 pounds of weight attached to it. After three tortuous days of halo adjustments straightened my spine, I was ready for surgery. Bone was taken from my hip to reconstruct the fourth cervical vertebrae. Then, wire was wrapped around the fourth and fifth vertebrae to fuse them together. I sported a hard, plastic cervical collar as my "bling" for the next six weeks to limit my head movement and enable the two vertebrae to calcify. I hated that thing – I would get so itchy. I couldn't scratch myself, and the difficulties I had communicating drove me absolutely nuts. Surgery was a success but I was still in critical condition. Having ingested so much saltwater caused pneumonia and kept the medical staff from attempting to wean me off the ventilator. After 11 days at ,Tripler Army Medical Center,, a decision was made to transfer me to ,Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center,. Besides being 30 minutes from my hometown, the Cleveland VA is known for its ,spinal cord injury, unit. After departing Hawaii, my next destination was an overnight stay at Travis Air Force Base in California. I was supposed to arrive in Cleveland the next day. Well, four stops later I found myself spending the night at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. I was in critical condition, traveling with a doctor and respiratory therapist, and it should have been a one-day trip. My mom had such a bad ,ear infection, that doctors tried to keep her from flying with me. Finally, two days after leaving Hawaii, I arrived in Cleveland. I was immediately placed in the intensive care unit, and respiratory therapists began the process of weaning me off the ventilator. Hands-down this was the hardest thing I've ever experienced in my life. Every second of every minute of every hour, I felt as if I were suffocating. As long as my oxygen saturation stayed 90 percent or above, respiratory therapy would continue to decrease the breaths per minute I received from the ventilator. It took nearly one month, but I was finally able to breathe on my own, something the doctor in Hawaii said would never happen. Finally stabilized, I was transferred to the spinal cord injury unit for rehabilitation. Setbacks were plentiful, beginning with uncontrollable fevers caused by damage to the central nervous system. It was common for me to have a temperatures of 103 degrees Fahrenheit, and a chilling blanket was used to control my temperature. Fevers of that magnitude had always given me chills, and I've never been so cold as I was on that blanket. Then there's pressure sores. I had just started getting up in a wheelchair and was hopeful to start therapy, but a wound on my sacrum (the area right above the butt crack commonly referred to as the tailbone) opened up, putting me in bed for six weeks. It was during that time when movement slowly returned to me. I was first able to supinate my left arm (in other words, rotate the hand to a palms-up position), and then did the same with the right arm. Bicep function and wrist extension came next. As the swelling in my spinal cord decreased, these movements returned and got stronger. By the time my wound healed, I had enough strength in my right arm to operate a power wheelchair. During the week, much of my time was spent working with weights, often twice a day. In just four short months after my injury, I had enough strength in my arms to push a manual chair (which is slightly faster than a turtle's pace and was a great accomplishment for me). I spent a total of 10 months at the VA Medical Center before being discharged. During that time, I met the most wonderful, knowledgeable ,occupational therapist,. She offered me an opportunity to participate in a study that involved the implantation of electrodes to restore hand function, which is referred to as functional electrical stimulation or FES. In January 1995, I had surgery to implant a small device under my left pectoral muscle. Branching off this are wires with electrodes attached at the ends. Routed under the armpit and down the arm, electrodes stimulate different nerves and muscles that control the hand. I was the 10th in the state of Ohio and the 23rd in the world to receive this technology; without it, I'm unable to grip anything on my own. It's hard to explain how restoring this little bit of function has made such a huge difference in my life. Freedom from reliance on prosthetic devices has given me a sense of normalcy and leaves me less reliant on others. Additionally, I've met an abundance of people whom I consider to be the brightest, most caring individuals in the medical field. They have been instrumental in my ,recovery, and have given me opportunities that have increased my quality of life in so many ways. I'm forever grateful. After discharge from the VA, I moved in with my parents. Being back at home was a constant reminder of my pre-injury life and all the memories of my upbringing. That was just one of many things that made it difficult adjusting to my injury. Gone were the days of spontaneity; now every day begins with a routine. Wake up in the morning, take pills, empty my bladder (a medical procedure known as intermittent catheterization, which needs to be done every 4 to 6 hours), do range of motion on my legs (a series of stretches to prevent muscle contractures and reduce spasticity), then get washed up, dressed and in my chair. As a result of damage to the spinal cord, bowel function is also compromised. Every other day, a bowel routine is performed. This entails the insertion of a rectal suppository that stimulates the colon, which in turn evacuates stool. As you can probably imagine, this routine, along with the inability to do all the things that I once enjoyed, is a hard pill to swallow. Lucky for me, I've got a great support system and a twisted sense of humor, both of which were necessary for me to keep moving forward. Christopher Wynn and son Nathan(Courtesy of Christopher Wynn) In 1995, I built a house utilizing resources that were available to me from the Veterans Administration. My sister, brother-in-law and niece moved in with me when it was completed. My sister was my primary ,caregiver, until I set up services with a home health care agency. Life was coming together. I started taking some college classes, though I had no career goal in mind. It was good for me to get out and be around other people, though I was still very self-conscious about being in a wheelchair. I liked to get out but was uncomfortable with myself and being around people who didn't understand my injury. In 1996, I met my sister's girlfriend's sister. We hit it off immediately and had a lot in common, and she enjoyed wheelchair rides. In August 1997, we tied the knot. I was blown away when several of my friends from Hawaii flew in to attend the ceremony – it was the best wedding gift ever. As time passed, I continued to reach new milestones. I took drivers training classes, got my license and started driving. Three years into marriage, my wife and I decided to have a child. We needed to use in vitro fertilization because of my injury, and three embryos were implanted. In August 2001, we had a 9 lbs. 1 oz. baby boy. The highlight of that whole day, besides the delivery of a healthy baby, was the fact that I, husband and now father, had the privilege and ability to drive my wife to the hospital to deliver. Christopher Wynn and wife Susan(Courtesy of Christopher Wynn) Unfortunately, complications developed in the marriage, and we divorced shortly before my son's second birthday. Because of circumstances surrounding the divorce, I was named the residential parent. With the help of my mom (who moved in with me Monday through Friday) and dad, I was blessed with the opportunity to raise my son. Because I didn't work, all my time was able to be spent with him. Initially I had reservations about parenting from a wheelchair. I thought of all the things I wouldn't be able to do with him as a father – but it turned out I could do a whole lot more than I thought. Because I had to explain everything, he takes verbal instruction very well and has become very self-reliant because I couldn't do everything for him. Above all, I wanted him to be a hard-working, caring, compassionate individual. When my son started school, I was offered an opportunity to participate in a VA study. It involved returning people with spinal cord injuries back to work. I had an idea to open up a spinal cord rehab facility and gym. With the help of some very special people, I wrote up a business plan that required approval on state and federal levels. It took four years from start to finish, but in September 2011, Buckeye Wellness Center opened its doors. The only facility of its kind in Ohio, it offers people with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities a second chance to reach their therapy goals when insurance stops paying. There's also accessible gym equipment so people who want to stay in shape can exercise. (It's worth noting that I remarried in 2004 to my wonderful wife, Susan, and she's been instrumental in raising my son. Buckeye Wellness Center wouldn't exist without her, either.) It's been over 23 years since that tragic day on the beach. I often wonder what I would've done with my life had I not broken my neck. The doctor in Hawaii who did my surgery told my mom I would curse the day he saved my life. I'd actually like to ,thank him,. I've been blessed in so many ways since that day – ,my life would not have been nearly as fulfilling had it not happened. https://health.usnews.com/health-news/patient-advice/articles/2016-07-20/i-was-paralyzed-by-a-spinal-cord-injury-and-its-made-my-life-more-fulfilling Dan Gilbert says that people are not very good at knowing what will make them happy and what won’t. You would think that being a slave, being in prison, and even becoming a paraplegic would not be described as things you miss, or “my life would not have been nearly as fulfilling had (paraplegia) not happened.” Human beings return to a general setpoint of happiness after about 6 months, regardless of what has happened to them. Once people are used to things they acclimate to the “new normal.” People have the ability to find meaning in the most positive and negative experiences of life. The surprising science of happiness Mark Twain on French Revolution and the Reign of Terror: “,There were two Reigns of Terror if we would but remember and consider it. The one wrought murder in hot passion, the other in heartless cold blood. The one lasted mere months, the other had lasted a thousand years. The one inflicted death upon ten thousand persons, the other upon a hundred million. Our shudders are all for the 'horrors' of the minor Terror, the momentary Terror, so to speak. But what is the horror of swift death by the axe compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty, and heartbreak?” Twain was well aware of how the lack of democracy and ownership by the few over the many led to massive suffering over the long arc of history. Likewise, capitalism has not been kind to people. The search for profits before people, for property rights before human rights, has caused the homelessness, starvation, death, and suffering of billions of people throughout history. Capitalism relies on constant economic growth to avoid recession. Eventually the system needs new natural resources, like oil and cheap labor to exploit or the system crashes. The search for cheap oil, labor, and new markets led to colonialism in Africa, India, and others. Millions of people exploited to serve the profits of imperial powers. Marx noticed this in his own day. He also knew that attempts at freedom were smashed by imperial powers. The Paris Commune in 1871 was a democratic socialist society in Paris. Workers owned the means of production and managed themselves. People worked collectively and everyone had what they needed. Then the French King invaded and brutally killed 20,000 of them to make an example out of what happens to those who embrace socialism. Liberal democracy is bourgeois democracy. It is government by the rich and for the benefit of the rich. The masses are permitted to vote so they feel better. Human Psychology There are acutal differences in the brains of conservatives vs liberals. There are different subconscious reactions which occur in these two types of people. Conservatives are naturally more frightened of change. They operate more from fear than do liberals. Shaking things up causes them anxiety. BLUE STATE,, red state. Big government, big business. Gay rights, fetal rights. The United States is riven by the politics of extremes. To paraphrase humor columnist Dave Barry, Republicans think of Democrats as godless, unpatriotic, Volvo-driving, France-loving, elitist latte guzzlers, whereas Democrats dismiss Republicans as ignorant, NASCAR-obsessed, gun-fondling religious fanatics. An exaggeration, for sure, but the reality is still pretty stark. Congress is in a perpetual stalemate because of the two parties' inability to find middle ground on practically anything. According to the experts who study political leanings, liberals and conservatives do not just see things differently. They are different—in their personalities and even their unconscious reactions to the world around them. For example, in a study published in January, a team led by psychologist Michael Dodd and political scientist John Hibbing of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln found that when viewing a collage of photographs, conservatives' eyes unconsciously lingered 15 percent longer on repellent images, such as car wrecks and excrement—suggesting that conservatives are more attuned than liberals to assessing potential threats. Meanwhile examining the contents of 76 college students' bedrooms, as one group did in a 2008 study, revealed that conservatives possessed more cleaning and organizational items, such as ironing boards and calendars, confirmation that they are orderly and self-disciplined. Liberals owned more books and travel-related memorabilia, which conforms with previous research suggesting that they are open and novelty-seeking. “These are not superficial differences. They are psychologically deep,” says psychologist John Jost of New York University, a co-author of the bedroom study. “My hunch is that the capacity to organize the political world into left or right may be a part of human nature.” Although conservatives and liberals are fundamentally different, hints are emerging about how to bring them together—or at least help them coexist. In his recent book The Righteous Mind, psychologist Jonathan Haidt of the N.Y.U. Stern School of Business argues that liberals and conservatives need not revile one another as immoral on issues such as birth control, gay marriage or health care reform. Even if these two worldviews clash, they are equally grounded in ethics, he writes. Meanwhile studies by Jost and others suggest that political views reside on a continuum that is mediated in part by universal human emotions such as fear. Under certain circumstances, everyone can shift closer to the middle—or drift further apart. The Fear Factor Psychologists have found that conservatives are fundamentally more anxious than liberals, which may be why they typically desire stability, structure and clear answers even to complicated questions. “Conservatism, apparently, helps to protect people against some of the natural difficulties of living,” says social psychologist Paul Nail of the University of Central Arkansas. “The fact is we don't live in a completely safe world. Things can and do go wrong. But if I can impose this order on it by my worldview, I can keep my anxiety to a manageable level.” Anxiety is an emotion that waxes and wanes in all of us, and as it swings up or down our political views can shift in its wake. When people feel safe and secure, they become more liberal; when they feel threatened, they become more conservative. Research conducted by Nail and his colleague in the weeks after September 11, 2001, showed that people of all political persuasions became more conservative in the wake of the terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, in an upcoming study, a team led by Yale University psychologist Jaime Napier found that asking Republicans to imagine that they possessed superpowers and were impermeable to injury made them more liberal. “There is some range within which people can be moved,” Jost says. More practically, instead of trying to change people's emotional state (an effect that is temporary), astute policy makers might be able to phrase their ideas in a way that appeals to different worldviews. In a 2010 paper Irina Feygina, a social psychology doctoral student at N.Y.U. who works with Jost, found a way to bring conservatives and liberals together on global warming. She and her colleagues wondered whether the impulse to defend the status quo might be driving the conservative pooh-poohing of environmental issues. In an ingenious experiment, the psychologists reframed climate change not as a challenge to government and industry but as “a threat to the American way of life.” After reading a passage that couched environmental action as patriotic, study participants who displayed traits typical of conservatives were much more likely to sign petitions about preventing oil spills and protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Environmentalism may be an ideal place to find common political ground. “Conservatives who are religious have this mind-set about being good stewards of the earth, to protect God's creation, and that is very compatible with green energy and conservation and other ideas that are usually classified as liberal,” Nail says. Moral Scorecards On topics where liberals and conservatives will never see eye to eye, opposing sides can try to cultivate mutual respect. In The Righteous Mind, Haidt identifies several areas of morality. Liberals, he says, tend to value two of them: caring for people who are vulnerable and fairness, which for liberals tends to mean sharing resources equally. Conservatives care about those things, too, but for them fairness means proportionality—that people should get what they deserve based on the amount of effort they have put in. Conservatives also emphasize loyalty and authority>, values helpful for maintaining a stable society. In a 2009 study Haidt and two of his colleagues presented more than 8,000 people with a series of hypothetical actions. Among them: kick a dog in the head; discard a box of ballots to help your candidate win; publicly bet against a favorite sports team; curse your parents to their faces; and receive a blood transfusion from a child molester. Participants had to say whether they would do these deeds for money and, if so, for how much—$10? $1,000? $100,000? More? Liberals were reluctant to harm a living thing or act unfairly, even for $1 million, but they were willing to betray group loyalty, disrespect authority or do something disgusting, such as eating their own dog after it dies, for cash. Conservatives said they were less willing to compromise on any of the moral categories. Haidt has a message for both sides. He wants the left to acknowledge that the right's emphasis on laws, institutions, customs and religion is valuable. Conservatives recognize that democracy is a huge achievement and that maintaining the social order requires imposing constraints on people. Liberal values, on the other hand, also serve important roles: ensuring that the rights of weaker members of society are respected; limiting the harmful effects, such as pollution, that corporations sometimes pass on to others; and fostering innovation by supporting diverse ideas and ways of life. Haidt is not out to change people's deepest moral beliefs. Yet he thinks that if people could see that those they disagree with are not immoral but simply emphasizing different moral principles, some of the antagonism would subside. Intriguingly, Haidt himself has morphed from liberal to centrist over the course of his research. He now finds value in conservative tenets that he used to reject reflexively: “It's yin and yang. Both sides see different threats; both sides are wise to different virtues.” https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/calling-truce-political-wars/ Conservative vs Republican is also influenced by our childhood interactions with our parents. Why Socialism is Not More Popular The result of this is straightforward—some people are going to be resistant to political change simply because it is different and unknown to them. They are the first to say that socialism is scary, radical, dangerous, violent, likely to result in disorder, threatening, etc. Because there are so many conservatives, in a democratic society you won’t get the consensus you need to actually make society socialist, even though it is actually better for people. Logic about political philosophy isn’t going to work. Lenin understood this. He also knew that people are unlikely to achieve the sufficient level of awareness regarding the capitalist system to fix things themselves. That is why he proposed there be a revolutionary vanguard, members of the intelligentsia that would lead the workers toward socialism. These people would lead the communist party and the workers to seize the means of production and eliminate private property. The state would hold the means of production for the people. A new society would be created, one of socialism working toward communism. Lenin agreed with Marx that true communism is moneyless, stateless, and classless. “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” But true communism could not be achieved until sufficient automation technology was developed to create abundance.
