Bonus points:he calls the Sandinista government in the 80s a "dictatorship" and uses a bogus testimonial from a supposed anonymous Cuban about how all the Cubans are starving and mechanical engineers become taxi drivers for tips and also the hospitals have no medicine.

>When I hear of Bernie Sanders praising Castro, or see young people admiring Che Guevara, it makes me so angry. I think, how can you admire these criminals who killed thousands of people? >People today are so uninformed about the horrors of socialism. I woke up one morning and the beautiful country I had known and loved was gone. The government had taken over all of the American and Cuban companies. Farmers were given twenty-four hours to leave their land.
>You have to be Cuban to know the truth. My family members still live in Cuba today and without the dollars I send they would not have enough to eat. Every week the Cuban people are given a ration book that tells them how much food and what type of food they can get. The ration coupons usually run out by Wednesday. There is no meat or fish available right now, only chicken. With dollars you can buy just about anything, but with Cuban money there is very little available.
>You might get a “free” education, but you have to study what the government tells you to study. And even then there is no money to be made. Doctors make between $25 and $50 a month. There are many professionals who drive taxis in Cuba because they are tipped more in dollars from tourists than they can make at their professional job. The last time I visited Cuba our taxi driver was educated as a mechanical engineer.
>The Cubans who do not have relatives that send dollars have a terrible time. And free health care? That is a joke! I know people in Cuba who have died from conditions that are completely treatable here in the United States. There is very little medicine available to the Cuban people so I send my family their prescription medications, even simple things like Band-Aids.
>The idea that there is equality in Cuba is a lie—the people struggle for their basic needs while the government officials and those in the armed services live like kings! No ration books for them!
>The infrastructure is crumbling and the streets are filled with potholes—except in the tourist areas. The government makes sure to present an attractive face to the rest of the world, but the regular neighborhoods are in terrible shape.
>On every block, there is a house with people who spy and report back to the government—they know who visits you, how much money you have, everything. The government controls everything and there is no freedom of speech or opinion. The Cuban people don’t know what is going on in Venezuela. They know only what the government wants them to know. Even the laws change from day to day, and something you can do today you might not be able to do tomorrow.
Not sure if Rand Paul made this up himself or if its from a real gusano. If a gusano's mouth is moving, they are lying, so they would totally make shit up like this for right-wing propaganda, but on the other hand this is almost too tame for gusano bullshit.

I love how this title implies something among the lines of "society will collapse if young adults don't need to rack up huge debts in order to go to college!"
I don't understand why lolberts are always so eager to defend the outrageous tuition fees of the American education system. They are supposed to be against central banking, yet the Federal Reserve owns $1.5 trillion in student loan debt and they seem to have no problem with that.

It probably includes the strasser quote and random welfare programs the nsdap enacted as proof of nazis being socialist lmao
>>102561
Chapter 20 is made up by a single sentence that says "National SOCIALIST Party".
>>102551
They're backed against a wall on this one. Like with healthcare they can't claim that some utopia with spontaneously manifest itself if the market is free enough, because these are very obviously the results of the free market and people know it. So they have to pretend that actually it's all fine and the alternative systems aren't all that great if you really, really dig.
>>102566
You're not even that far off.

The first paragraph of Chapter 20:
>For obvious reasons, no significant party advocates Nazi socialism today. Ever since the general public became aware of the Nazi death camps, no one has wanted the stigma of being anywhere close to Nazism on any political spectrum. So, despite the Nazis literally having “socialist” in their name—the National Socialist German Workers’ Party—the left has made a concerted effort to label Nazis as “far-right-wingers.”
I wish college was nonfree here so the professional-managerial class would be less reactionary.
>>102570

It's always that.
It's always been that.
They are the kind of idiots who believe that "buffalo wings" means that buffalo are actually birds. You can't win against people whose logic works like that.

Well the chapter about college is even worse than I thought.
>Sweden and China are more meritocratic than the USA because you have to pass exams before going to college.
>Children of blue-collar workers tend not to go to college in Sweden because blue-collar jobs are well-paid
>Swedish students have less debt than Americans, but they still have some because they need to pay a landlord
>The taxes Swedish people pay help to fund their education system, how awful!

Americans have SAT and usually have some kind of standardized end of course to take, not to mention the extracurriculars and good grades you need to get if you want to get into a good school (unless you're the kid of someone who can bribe your way in)

How fucking scared are they lmao
>>116328
A little more than usual. The spectre is starting to whisper a little louder and the contradictions are becoming more and more apparent. We are approaching, possibly a far off, but guaranteed breaking point. Similar to the one in the 1930s. The ruling class will have to decide: compromise or fight back. In the US they compromised and gave the new deal. Germany chose to fight back and establish a fascist state. It does not seem, with the falling rate of profit that a compromise can be afforded. What happens next is terrifying to imagine.
>>116332
You are already seeing around 50% of zoomers in Europe accepting European Conservative orthodoxy. I'm sure they'll be able to implement fascism there pretty easily.
>>116336
Yup. There's no fascism without social chauvinism to unite people. It's really disgusting to see what people really believe when they are not class conscious. Never underestimate propaganda.
>>116338
European zoomers are some of the privileged the world over. I cringe when maoist say that the US has no real chance of forming a revolution, but the real base of reaction is where the porkies actually live. Europe. The average European Zoomer's cares mostly comes down to being squicked out by the vastly fewer muslims there are in their country, while in the US it is a struggle to thrive and in many cases survive.
It is actually a very stupid strategy to be a super mask off porky, because outside of 4chan there aren't many young people who care for that shit. While in Europe, being a fascist is hip and cool.
