I especially liked this part:

"Socialism is evil because it disguises theft and
makes robbery seem legitimate by passing money through
government hands. Tax money passed through the
government is like money laundered by the mob. Once
tax money is collected by a government, it loses its
identity, its origins and, therefore, its true owners.

"Socialism is involved in the redistribution of
income, which is just a polite way of saying robbery.
A bank robber is more direct and honest. He does not
say he is redistributing the bank's money. He plainly
demands it for himself."
Gee, I thought that was capitalism disguising the
theft of the socially produced product of the working
class through State legitimation of the wages system.
Of course, it's not our government, so part of the
product of our labour has to go into taxes to fund the
capitalist State.

What an upside-down version of the world we are told
to live in.
