"I just want to know, why it is, that none of these leftist heroes ever give away all of their cash, to go live in poverty, in one of the places like the one they want to turn the US into?
DDF nails it. The power and validity if questions like that make it hard for liberals and moderates to hang with us on this board. You might be held to explain something like that. Are prominent actors and musicians moving to Venezuela where their policies are fully in place? And where can conservatives move? Most of the rest of the world is worse, so to make things more equal, we copy them.
I also don't know how leftist ir how political Bob Zimmerman (Dylan) is. With "how many times must the cannon balls fly Before they're forever banned" he perhaps invented the freeze movement and unilateral disarmament before John Lennon invented one world open borders, but in his own words he was a musician, not a political activist.
The 'how many times' refrain also applies to giving Nobel peace prizes to likes of the Arafat, Carter, Gore, Obama and Dylan without diminishing the good brand name.
Liberty isn't that sexy enough for popular songs - although "Hamilton" has people singing about the constitution and the federalist papers.
Personally, I went from making almost 100K a year, to 10,000 pesos a month, changing countries, based on principle, and I'm a capitalist.
Dylan calling himself a "musician" and not a "political activist?" Only to shield himself from scrutiny as was just levied, because they know what happens.
Currently writing a thesis, on the origins of government, property, and law. In it, I examine everything from the paleo-indian migration (3 waves), the origin of writing systems, the implementation of law, of all forms, and I'm currently investigating so called "socialist success stories." Quick read of that chapter? There are none that I have found yet, and the ones that are hld up, as to be success stories aren't truly socialist, and the people supporting this form of ideology, don't believe in freedom and believe rights to come from enacted law, and not the other way around. The supporters of socialism, also are invariably bureaucrats from socialist countries, or people that have never lived in one.
