Why Democrats are Embracing Anti-Capitalism and Socialists
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has been called the future of the Democratic Party. Cortez is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, a group that calls for an end to private profit and end to capitalism.
Many people don’t understand that under socialism you do not control the fruits of your labor, rather the state or collective gets to decide where your value gets put. Without private profit the individual cannot decide what they get to purchase or trade.
Understanding this we can see that many people do not actually look at the values of the DSA and what they advocate, if they did many people would likely not align themselves with the group as most Americans, even on the left, are Capitalists.
