Old, Failed Idea Repackaged As New, Progressive Idea
Politics

U.S.—An old, failed idea -- one that spread countless misery long ago when people were ignorant enough to implement it -- has once again been repackaged as a new, progressive idea.

"Wow! This will solve everything!" said an enthusiastic young liberal about an idea proven by history to make everything worse.

"This is the way of the future!" said another leftist about the idea that most people thought had been buried in the past, but continues to rise again like a monster from a horror movie.

The idea, which completely ignores human nature and depends on lots of oppressive, top-down government controls, has already been embraced by the more left-wing members of the Democratic Party. "I'm going to add this to the Green New Deal," said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has always been expected to sign on to the latest left-wing fad with complete credulity. Bernie Sanders has also announced his support for the idea, but being 500 years old, he was around the last time the idea was tried and should know better.

Some people on the Right have been vocally opposed to the idea -- which is objectively terrible and should be opposed by anyone with even a remedial understanding of history -- though liberals have dismissed the resistance as "racist."
