I disagree 100%.

You show me a socialist and I'll show you someone who thinks they will personally gain from socialism.


True. Though it's probably fair to say that they and people they group themselves with expect to gain from socialism, hence the prevalence of "group identities" in their politics. It's very "us vs. them".

I'd just as soon avoid that whole dichotomy, but they insist upon it. So be it. I side with the capitalists then, those fat cat rich people who get things done and have all the money. Their move.

I'm sure they'll argue "you're being used by the rich!" More like I'm repulsed by the moochers. Meh. To put it in words they'll understand I'd rather be used by respectable people than worshipped by detestable ones.
