Politics is pure god-damned violence. Social responsibility is the art and science of terminating the distinguishing differences between the rich and poor. Socialism is the vision of social abilities to create.

Sillik, I'm glad to see your recognition of a "god" and, (choose your pronoun  his / her / it / etc.) ability to bless or otherwise. As to damning, socialism is that worship of false carnal gods that distinguish the rich from the poor while condemning all but an oligarchal few (in your case, the one true god  Sillik)
