Socialism Fantasy Camp

This is apparently not a parody account:

So, under socialism, only foot fetishists will work in shoe stores, bedpans will be emptied by coprophiliacs, and potatoes will be dug by… poor people overseen by armed men because nobody in the real world is going to do it just for the gratification of feeding smug populations of urban elites who spend their days making Twitter posts about how awesome socialism is. 

Until someone invents replicators so we can have Luxury Authoritarian Space Communism a la Star Trek, this scheme of “everybody works for the common good and does whatever they want” isn’t going to work. And even in the Trek universe, there is still scarcity. If everyone is living in a high-rise condo, who gets the top floor with the view? Who has to be next to the turbolift? I imagine there would have to be an entire bureaucracy of people making those allocations; people who were really passionate about telling other people where they get to live and suchlike.

Question: Do cops regularly lie in order to make arrests?
Progressive Answer: “Of course they do, all the time. And they get away with it because the system is so corrupt.”

Question: Do prosecutors lie in order to get convictions?
Progressive Answer: “Oh, hell yes. And they get away with it because the system is so corrupt.”

Question: “Would the FBI lie in order to get a FISA warrant to spy on political opponents?”
Progressive Answer: “How dare you make such a treasonous suggestion! You’re a pawn of Vladimir Putin! Our law enforcement agencies deserve absolute loyalty!”

It cuts the other way, too. Lots of “conservatives” who have recently been critical of the FBI normally defer to law enforcement implicitly. The only “pure” people on this are the “True-Cons” like Bill Kristol and Ewen McMuffin who preach unquestioning loyalty to all elements of Government.
