“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 (ESV).
My name is Abraham Hamilton, III and this is The Hamilton Minute.
Merriam Webster’s dictionary defines socialism as an economic system in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state. The distribution of goods are controlled by the state. It is a system where there is no private property. A stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism.
American socialist put the descriptor “democratic” in front of socialism because they hope to persuade you to vote for… the elimination of private property.
Make no mistake, socialism is socialism. There is no kinder, gentler form of it.
