Democrats want to ban profits
File this under “Democratic Party says we all belong to the government.”
Libertarian radio host Peter Schiff asked delegates at the Democratic convention what they would think about a law banning corporate profits. One after another, they all supported the idea.
As Andrew E., who sent the clip, explains here, only a quarter of the delegates Schiff spoke to said that banning corporate profits was going too far. The rest either positively supported the idea or were sympathetic.
[The businessman’s] face had the expression which, these days, was the mark of an honest man: an expression of bewilderment. He was looking at his companion, trying hard—conscientiously, helplessly, hopelessly—to understand.
Bruce B. writes:
This entry suggest that the Democrats aren’t merely “cultural Marxists” and that the “classical Marxism” idea of economic and social-class leveling is alive and well. So I propose “comprehensive Marxism” or “comprehensive Leftism” as our preferred description of what they believe.
