Chalkboard Lesson: What’s the Difference Between a ‘Social Democracy’ and ‘Democratic Socialism’?

In this clip from the show’s fourth episode on socialism, Glenn takes to the chalkboard to shed some light on the ways in which Socialist leaders, both past and present (ahem…Bernie Sanders,) have used propaganda and wordplay to sway public opinion.

After the rise of the Soviet Union, terms like “social democracy” were labeled as heresy. Contrarily, European socialist leaders began to embrace such “favorable words,” seeing them as a means to an end.

“By sticking more favorable words, ‘democracy,’ after the word ‘social,’ the movement now had a new PR scheme to make people forget about what was going on in places like Russia and China — the killing of all kinds of people,” said Glenn.

So you say you want a revolution

After the deadly revolutions that occurred in countries such as Russia and China, the word ‘revolution’ had lost any former appeal. Socialist leaders who sought to influence public opinion knew they must choose their words carefully. “They knew now they couldn’t say it — revolution was no longer the right word,” said Glenn, adding, “In fact, if you just adjust it … Revolution actually becomes ‘infiltration.’ We’re now living in an era when this infiltration is being played out right in front of our eyes, within our own government, here in America … and they’re not even trying to hide it. In 2016, the Democratic primary debate, Bernie Sanders explained and defended a term that is quickly becoming the most popular idea in American politics: democratic socialism.”
