They have good intentions, but invariably there are consequences to their ideas that are unintended and make things much, much worse.

I disagree 100%.

You show me a socialist and I'll show you someone who thinks they will personally gain from socialism. For the majority of socialist, they believe the lies of their socialist leaders that the state will give them more loot. For those in power, it is a power grab. They believe that once they have power, they'll only give the lowly followers enough loot to keep them from turning away.

Whether the socialist plans to be one of those dividing up the loot or receiving the loot, it doesn't matter. Neither group has good intentions. They don't care what happens to the standard of living, how they are harming those they are looting or anything else.

Socialists are people trying to wrap mealymouthed platitudes around pure unadulterated greed and selfishness. Then they turn around and accuse those they are looting of greed.

They are the lowest of the low, there is a special place in hell for them, and it is a place run by socialists.
