    Besides, in a true communist or socialist society, why would one need to prep for anything?
    There is one glaring flaw in your "pink" worldview... You do not have the right, nor the ability to give up MY freedom.

    No, you don't get something for nothing
    You can't have freedom for free
    You won't get wise
    With the sleep still in your eyes…

    Rush. Something for nothing

    Just my opinion but I think a lot of people are falling for the trap.

    It's like a magician using slight of hand. We are watching the wrong hand as the other manipulates at will. We need to stop looking at the bright shiny object and focus on what is trying to strangle us.

    Here is a crude tree diagram of what we are dealing with. We seem to only be focusing on the bottom two when it is really the top one that we need to eradicate.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    That is the part they never understood, because they place low value on their freedoms (or see them as a hinderance), they place no value on ours. I fought for their right to express stupidity, but I don't have to listen to it. That is another nuance they never seem to understand.

    "I would gladly give up (and I think most other people would too) freedom to achieve a safer, more inclusive society.

    I fear the next generation may actually buy into this. Centralized socialist education leads to a generation that will give up their freedoms for some crumbs of "social justice". I just hope and pray that we can somehow insert ideals like accountability, responsibility, and respect for people and property back into the things young people learn. If they learned to respect others and create opportunities, they would do more good than anything they are doing now.

    The second sentence is self fulfilling prophecy. Those dumb enough to wait for socialism to save them, deserve the "rescue" they get. Read about the Socialist response in Wuhan to the COVID outbreak to see how they value the individual contributor.

    Sorry for reviving the topic. I just found that idea to be intellectually repugnant.
