'So who owns "Socialism?"'

Eric Scheie over at Classical Values laments the fact that anyone using the "S" word in discussions about the Obama administration automatically gets labeled a "kook" or "right-wing conspiracy theorist."

One of the commenters points out that if it looks like a socialist, smells like a socialist, advocates government takeover of private business like a socialist, it probably is one. And several commenters advised Scheie to use the word bluntly, in context, and never mind kookdom.

I agree.
