What is Democratic Socialism?
Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through  greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as well—everywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.
Doesn't socialism mean that the government will own and run everything?
Democratic socialists do not want to create an all-powerful government bureaucracy. But we do not want big corporate bureaucracies to control

I chose the handle "StarSatyr" to combine my love of space, science fiction, and a better future through colonizing space with my worship of the Great Goddess and Her Consort, the Horned God. (Btw, if I weren't Wiccan, I'd be Buddhist.)

I firmly believe in an America that belongs to ALL Americans, not just Rich, Religiously-Correct (fundamentalist Christian) Right-wingers. I will ALWAYS fight for the right of everyone to order their lives ad they see fit, so long as they do not inflict injury on the person or property of non-consenting others (both those unable to give consent and those able who withhold consent). For those grimly determined to reduce the U.S. debt no matter what, ending Welfare for the Prison-Industrial Complex (better known as the War on Drugs) is a good place to start.

I firmly believe humanity should still be a going concern for thousands, even millions of years, into the future, but that can only happen if we use asteroids and comets for materials to build many O'Neill-type colonies, eventually expanding to other stars. We cannot adopt Luddite attitudes to space, energy, or technology in general, but must carefully explore all possibilities. One thing we must NOT do is stick with a "business as usual" mentality such as that displayed by Republicans in Congress who want to maintain fossil-fuel subsidies while defunding solar, wind, renewables, thorium reactors, etc.

I hope to see a better America and a better world in my lifetime. Brightest Blessings to all!
