The Catalogue of Anti-Socialist Smear Tactics Charge of Endangerment Code Orange Charge of Irascibility Code Red Charge of Overgeneralization Code Gray Discussion The target is accused of having anger issues Whatever negative emotions heshe may have toward capitalism are assumed to be unjustifiable DiscussionThe target is accused of being a menace in some undefined manner This charge may be coupled with an attempt to censor the target Discussion The target is accused of making generalizations concerning the character of the wealthy or capitali sts Not all bosses are bad you know A lot of rich folk are really good people A lot of corporations contribute to charity you know Why are you so pessimistic? You're so negative! You sound like a terrorist You're dangerous Talk like this leads to totalitarianism My grandfather fought communism and this discussion is very upsetting to me Respone Anger is a legitimate emotion in the face of injustice It is important to remember that passive acceptance of injustice is not a virtue Response One should point out that socialist critique has nothing to do with the ethical character of capitalists as individuals but rather the role they play in an exploitative system One should also point out that charity merely mends flaws in a broken system Response It may be helpful to point out that an aversion to open discussion is itself a warning sign of totalitarianism Many authoritarian regimes defined themselves as anti- socialist andor anti-communist Charge of Cowardice Code Yellow Discussion The target is accused of having a fear of free market competition Charge of Misanthropy Code Black You just want the state to take care of you You want all your decisions made for you Discussion The target is accused of malice toward humanity or society Charge of Rationalization Code Purple Discussion The target is accused of explaining away hisher own failures andor dissatisfaction by blaming capitalism for hisher lack of success as defined by the accuser You're against the individual You're against Western culture Socialists want everybody to be a number in a computer Response Socialism has nothing to do with the state administering everything It is about participating in a democratic workplace It is just the opposite of wanting to be governed it is a demand to participate in governance to control ones own working life You're just jealous of the rich You just want to drag everybody down to your level Response One may point out that socialism is an ideology which promotes first and foremost the rights of workers - that is the majority of humanity Those who accuse socialists of opposing Western culture must assume that capitalism is the same thing as Western culture Some sociali sts like Theodor Adorno even claimed that culture was being degraded by capitalism Marxism claims that capitalism reduces the indivi dual to a cog in a vast machine It proposes a classless stateless society communi sm to replace it In such a society Marx claimed the individual would freely utilize their creative talents and intellect making it a system more favourable to the individual than capitalism Response This is an example of a circumstantial ad hominem Why shouldn't we be angry at the beneficiaries of an exploitative system? Is it jealousy that causes people to feel anger toward criminal gangs for example? Charge of Hypersensitivity Code Blue Discussion The target is accused of being hysterical or exaggerating the flaws of capitalism ie heshe is accused of playing Chicken Little Examples Stop whining! Get over it! Charge of Fanaticism Code Brown It's not as bad as all that! Discussion The target is accused of subscribing to an intolerant ideology or of being devoted to a totalitarian belief system Response One who uses the Code Blue tactic reveals a callous indifference to the humanity of workers It may be constructive to confront such an accuser and ask if the exploitation of workers needs to be addressed or not yes or no If the accuser answers in the negative it may be asking why any worker should care about the accuser's welfare since the favour will obviously not be returned If the accuser claims they are helpless to do anything about the problem one can ask why the accuser is then attacking those who are trying to do something about it Charge of Instability Code White The Nazis were socialists too you know You're an extremist Sounds like fascism! Discussion The target is accused of being emotionally or mentally unstable You're insane You must be crazy to believe that Response Socialist ideology takes many forms and has always done so Socialism is not synonymous with Stalinism A great many socialists are opposed to Stalinism The Nazis promoted a corporatist class collaborationi st ideology which they termed socialism in an attempt to gain working class support In practice they privatized most of the economy arrested socialistscommunists and banned independent labour unions Response Einstein once defined insanity as repeating the same actions expecting different results Capitalism is a crisis prone system as the 2008 financial collapse demonstrated Yet we continue to repeat the errors of the past expecting different results The logic of capitalism is itself a kind of insanity the concept of continuous growth on a planet of finite resources is surely insane Charge of Puerility Code Green Discussion The target is accused of being immature idealistic maladjusted andor irresponsible in some manner that reflects badly on their status as adults Charge of Selfishness Code Silver Charge of Invirility Code Lavendar Discussion Socialist are commonly accused of selfishness for wishing to deprive capitalists of their property or their money Discussion The target's masculinity or sexual orientation are called into question Grow up! This stuff is for edgy teens You'll grow out of it Left-wingers are effeminate gay etc etc You are so greedy You are materialistic Response Socialism is and has been advocated by people of many different age groups and personality types The claim that it is an ideology exclusively of the young just does not correspond to reality Response If in a discussion with a right-winger it may be worth pointing out that this is just the sort of ad hominem attack they most despise when used by their liberal opponents The sexuality of the debaters is of course of no relevance in economic discussions Response Capitalists exploit the surplus value of workers and they must do this in order to run a profitable business To demand an end to exploitation is not greed If anything deserves to be called greedy and materialistic it should be capitalist exploitation Not sure if this was posted here before The Catalogue of Anti-Socialist Smear Tactics Meme
