It is the same sort of dishonesty that has people believing the confederate soldiers were fighting for states rights and were not that interested in slavery. It is a reality that for decades it was taught that socialism was automatically a fascist dictatorship. As more information is available and the old lies and whitewashing are not imposed on fact based research a lot of educated people realized socialism is not inherently a fascist dictatorship. People started to separate the two and realize the state can run things far better than private institutions. It is also better certain things are run by the state because you can enforce equal rights. You cannot as easily step into private businesses or religious institutions and enforce equal rights. The children are actually being truly aware and educated on the meanings of things because they are not subject to the fascist propaganda lies of the US that were really all people were allowed to see in past generations. The anger against socialism is brainwashing. We can have a debate about which systems are better run by the government, and which systems are better left to commercial or people's control. That is an argument about socialist systems and how far they should go in a society. We can even agree that dangerous things happen when you have dictatorships and a lack of democracy or fascism associated with socialism. A more honest discussion of socialism is needed and the people who are all about socialism being evil are ignorant, manipulative, and dishonest and should laughed out of the conversation for their weakness and lack of ability to properly participate.
