Re: A reminder about what socialism is, was 10 things NYC should do now that Amazon HQ2 deal is over

the New Deal, enacted long before the war, it got thousands of folks back to work

Great, "thousands" and due to government programs and employment. The millions it harmed was an acceptable tradeoff, then? Unemployment rate remained at 17 percent throughout (half a million blacks alone were put out of work by the so-called National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933, for one glaring example). The massive increases in excise, income and corporate taxes depressed commerce, and the controls on agricultural and industrial production depressed it even more.

Of course, you actually think there's a good side to socialism, as you put it. How about looking at the reality?
