Why Americans Get Socialism and Capitalism Backwards
Socialism isn’t charity — it is the precise opposite. Socialism is investment. At least the modern sort, social democracy, because nobody outside a college campus is suggesting communal dorm living by way of the Bolshevik revolution. It is investment that people make in themselves — so that they can enjoy greater wealth — which capitalism will always starve them of.

Let me put that in plain English. Charity makes you poorer — it’s a transfer. Social democracy makes people wealthier. In lasting, transformative ways. It makes them richer. It lets them live longer. They are happier. It makes their democracies more robust. Their living standards rise dramatically as a result, to levels that no other system in human history has been able to achieve — neither communism, socialism, nor capitalism. That is perhaps the greatest discovery of the 20th century.
