Socialism

n-thomas

Interesting story:   Norman M. Thomas (1884-1968) – was a leading American socialist,
pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of
America.

Norman Thomas said in a 1944 speech: “The American people will never
knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will
adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be
a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

He went on to say: ”I no longer need to run as a Presidential candidate for
the Socialist Party.The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

Good insights, not from the “left” media or “right” talk radio, but from one
who actually lived it.
