They talk about it and they actually do it.

Credible citation from a movement leader, please.

Democratic socialism is going look lot like a slippery slope to you.

Oxymoron. No such thing as “democratic socialism”. The only socialistic countries on the planet are authoritarian. Please don’t sully the discussion with “Denmark and Sweden”; both countries are rabidly capitalist, which is why the Danish Minister told Crazy Uncle Bernie to STFU when he kept referring to Denmark as “socialist”.

However, we are never going to be a modern state without it.

We are already a modern state.

Our educational system, our health system and our infrastructure are not 3rd World yet, but they are sliding in that direction.

You must not travel much. I do. All three of the things you mentioned have their warts, but they are not even remotely close to “3rd World”.

It does. Sorry, but it does.

Please see prior reference to the term “useful idiot”. Find a mirror.

It’s ignoring bloody attacks on synagogues, black churches, ignoring swastikas, Nazi chants, Nazi tattoos, and ignoring that they brought guns to “a simple protest of a statue removal.”

You offer a false choice. One does not have to support violent vigilantism in order to oppose violence. What you propose, violent individuals taking the law (as they define it, not as the actual LAW defines it) into the own hands, is as contrary to American values as racism is.
