A wickedly effective attack on the author's "second least favorite socialist in the nation," Seattle city councilwoman and--big sigh--NC State economics Ph.D., Kshama Sawant.
Her quotes include: In response to criticism that a $15 an hour minimum wage could hurt the economy, “If making sure that workers get out of poverty would severely impact the economy, then maybe we don’t need this economy.”
Mind you she doesn’t have anything to replace it with . . . This seems to be a common theme for socialist revolutionaries, (especially ones whose formative years were in some place other than America) they’re big on “destroying the existing paradigm” but when you start looking at what they want to put in its place, things suddenly get really vague, and you get answers like “the government will provide.” It’s a form of religion, and the worship of the state has never led to anything except re-education camps, starvation, and death.
