I remain utterly convinced that if you took the most assertive middle-class capitalism-apologists and shipped them to an alternate dimension where a socialist-in-name society existed with basically the same features as the capitalist world today, they would absolutely rail against the system. They’d blame “socialism” for the ungodly wealth inequality, the lack of political power among the masses, the police brutality, the systemic bigotry, the corruption, the imperialism, the alienation, etc. No class/structural analysis; just a surface condemnation based on labels.
Put most socialists in the same scenario and they’d immediately recognize the society for what it is: a class system based on top-down control of the means of life – by capitalists and bureaucrats. The government might be “doing stuff” and calling it “socialist”, but that doesn’t eradicate the class form in any meaningful way.
For god’s sake, actually take a look at the skeletal structure of society for once in your goddamn lives, you Monster-swigging yuppies.
