Most American leftists are incoherent on the term fascism, and Democrats have utterly destroyed the word’s meaning.
“If the small economy of Cuba can improve the health of millions of the world’s people, imagine what could be accomplished if America’s enormous productive capacity changed from creating useless and destructive junk to producing what people throughout the world actually need.”
