Skip all the bullshit and cut to the chase.
"I'm a socialist" means "From now on, I'll be in charge, fortunately. You can take a hike."
In the words of Sarah Hoyt:
In socialism ... the most awful people on the planet strive to be your lord and master. Think Lenin. Think Marx, who often threatened his rivals with these words: "I will annihilate you." You have to ask, Who talks like that? Psychopaths are probably the main category, along with socialists and communists.
