It's just that we're called democratic socialists for a reason. We believe that the people should be in control, not a dictator.
The views of the maintaner of this account are not necessarily accurate or the facts.
In terms of supporting socialist countries, if you're referring to the DPRK or Venezuela, support within the organization varies but my guess would be thatmore often than not a DSA member would reject the concept that those countries are socialist or that they should be supported, because they're ruled by totalitarians and commit terrible human rights violations.
30,000 by hal🎃ween is our goal. :D #trysocialism

Houston is still flooded and people are still recovering but on NPR they reported that despite this Houston has been declared "open for business" and people are expected to return to work........ even though many of their cars are broken and they can't get to work
@nonazinohow yeah but democratic socialists are not the same thing as social democrats.
There ARE some social democrats in the ranks of DSA, and that's fine in the short term because our near goals (single-payer, tuition-free university, sensible wellfare) are the same, but the majority of DSA members are *not* social democrats and do, in fact, want the end of capitalism.

A screenshot of a facebook post by Michael Gsovski, 2017-09-03, 10:01 AM. Post summary:
Gerald Carr, Edward Gibson, and William Pogue, astronauts abord Skylab for the 1973 Skylab 4 grew weary of being overworked and having no scheduled rest time.
They made history when they staged a successful strike that won them, and future astronauts, scheduled rest time between mission tasks.
These astronauts are mostly unrecognized today, and were never allowed to go to space again due to their "mutiny".
These astronauts should be celebrated and recognized for holding the first labor demonstration in space, making the space station, in the words of the original poster, a place for "humans to be humans"
The original poster wants to make it their project to have their contributions more recognized by the US or the International Space Halls of Fame.
