The Democrats’ strange fascination with the word “Socialism”

As we have a new national conversation on “socialism”, it’s worth noting that every non-democratic socialist country has failed miserably, and usually at a great cost of human life. Every democratic socialist country has voted out socialism. And yes, this includes the countries of Scandinavia – if you ask their leaders, they will tell you they have a free market democracy, also called “Democratic Capitalism”. If anyone wonders why the Democrats sometimes have problems translating popular policies into electoral victories, this is surely a prime example. They are actually having a debate in the party about using a term that every other country in the world has abandoned, has negative connotations for most people in the United States and isn’t descriptive of what they are proposing.
