No, most of us don't know what it truly entails. I personally do but I and others like me are few compared to the mind muddled masses. Most of them think that socialism and communism are characteristics of overtly evil and oppressive governments as seen in Hollywood movies. They don't realize they are being led down that road in subtle baby steps. Before long it may be too late to turn back without a revolution. But most undercover socialist would just smirk at that comment and say something like... "What a nut!"
And actually, I hope they are right... I'd rather be crazy than oppressed or enslaved.
And another thing, why do people so readily agree to have something outlawed when they have no personal interest in them (i.e. guns). I mean, I have absolutely no use for game consoles (PS3, Xbox, etc...) and I DO think they contribute to the poor acedemic acheivement of our youth but I would NEVER, for ANY reason agree to outlaw said products simply because certain people choose to use them irresponsibly. Know what I mean, Vern?
