Chicago Dem Doesn’t Even Try to Hide His Socialist Agenda In an interview with the blatantly socialist magazine Jacobin, Ugo Okere said that “democratic socialism” should have control over “every single facet of our life.” “Democratic socialism, to me, is about democratic control of every single facet of our life,” Okere said. “Government is led by the people, not by big corporations, not by multibillionaires, and working people actually have control over who we elect to be our politicians,” he continued. that means “democratic socialism” would govern the private lives of citizens — including our relationships. the government would determine “how we treat each other,” and that treatment would be different depending on one’s gender, race, and class. Socialists don’t care about the classic principles of freedom and equality under the law. A socialist government would determine how people should be treated based on their identity.
