Not Surprised: Socialism is Fundamentally a Thuggish Philosophy

11/5/17 Washington Post:
 Sen. Rand Paul is recovering from five broken ribs and bruises to his lungs, and it is unclear when he will return to Washington, aides said Sunday, signaling that injuries he sustained Friday are far more severe than initially thought....
Jim Bullington, a former member of the city commission, knows both men. He said Sunday that Boucher is divorced and lives alone. Bullington described Boucher as a socialist.
“He’s pretty much the opposite of Rand Paul in every way,” Bullington said in an interview. 
The neighbors had been known to have “heated discussions” about health care, Bullington said, adding that Boucher is an advocate of a national health system. 
When I call it a thuggish philosophy, I mean it insists that everything others have created can and should be taken from them by the government.  The difference between a robber and a socialist is that the robber does not pretend to be the moral superior of his victim.
