“Democratic socialism” isn’t better than other kinds of socialism because it’s democratic; it’s worse because it’s democratic.
Democracy is horrible. It is mob rule made “socially acceptable”.
Socialism is horrible. It is the attempt to make a society stand on a foundation of envy, theft, parasitism, and entitlement.
Who could possibly imagine that combining these two nasty concepts could make something good?
Politics isn’t like chemistry where you can combine two deadly poisons like chlorine and sodium to make something beneficial and necessary like table salt.
Politics is already the path of failure and evil, and when you mix those two political toxins it makes something even more deadly.
