I took a peek at the Twitter account of the Socialist Party of Great Britain advocating for world socialism.
This account is monumentally stupid. It’s every bad socialist trope strung together. Cuba, Venezuela, China, North Korea, they aren’t socialist, they are capitalist. There will be no money and everything is free because we’ll work cooperatively.
We want to know how many people following our account, or who chance upon it, would like real socialism (see graphic for explanation). If you would prefer to live and work in this new society rather than continue living under capitalism, then PLEASE LIKE and RT this pinned tweet. pic.twitter.com/SZkSKdRsb5

This, however, was my favorite Tweet.
With genuine socialism, you would be doing work that you actually enjoy and want to do. All work will be voluntary. No one would be made to do anything they don’t want to do. That is what happens under capitalism.

The question that nobody addresses is: “who cleans the shitters?”
So here’s the deal that I’ll make with the Socialist Party of Great Britain:
I’ll accept socialism on a trial basis. I call dibs on being the guy who has to paint the swim suits on the Sports Illustrated swim suit models, body paint special. Since that is a seasonal job, I’ll spend the rest of the year as a sponsored professional IPSC/USPSA shooter.
Everyone who is a member of Socialist Party of Great Britain gets first crack at pumping septic tanks and Port-a-Potties.
If in 10 years time, they still want this system, I’ll be happy to consider making it permanent.
