What Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets wrong about Europe

by Rev. Ben Johnson

“True, one can find strands of socialism in European social democracy. However, one could equally cite European precedent to abolish the minimum wage, allow partial privatization of Social Security, establish continent-wide free trade, institute a low flat-rate property tax, give parents school choice, and limit abortions to the first trimester.” (01/08/19)

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.

Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!

This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.
