Dan Mitchell is back!
Today, let’s look at crossover humor. Each of these five items applies equally to both of those collectivist ideologies.
The worst person in world history makes an appearance in our first item.
Our next item mocks leftists in general.
Let’s return to the problem that our leftist friends have with the real world.
Here’s Homer Simpson getting ready to thrash both socialism and communism.
With a body count of 100 million, communism definitely killed a lot of people. Whether they were “friends” is a separate question.
P.S. To close with a serious comment, socialism is an economic system based on misguided policies such as government ownership, central planning, and price controls. Communism is a political system based on dictatorship and oppression.
By definition, every communist is a socialist. But not every socialist is a communist (especially not today’s so-called democratic socialists who are really just class-warfare redistributionists rather than real socialists).
