[C]apital ownership no longer takes the form of an individual business owner presiding over an empire, but instead takes the form of affluent families owning diversified portfolios of real estate and financial assets like stocks and bonds. The socialization of those assets into funds owned and controlled by workers or society would thus provide a relatively simple glide path into a kind of market socialism.The old textbook definition of socialism as 'ownership of means of production' is useless. You can have government OWNERSHIP without government CONTROL. Example, GM after 2008 was mainly OWNED by the feds, but the feds didn't exert their power to CONTROL how GM used its capital. In the real Soviet system, businesses weren't government agencies and didn't act like government agencies. They were NORMAL BUSINESSES, making things and selling things for a PROFIT. The government's function was CONTROL OF CAPITAL ALLOCATION. Gosbank invested more in companies that offered a realistic chance of improving production, or adding jobs for people with needed skill sets. Just as in simple capitalism, profit was the MEASURE of a company's success. Government was motivated to increase the profit of businesses, because government ran on VAT. The whole system was thus biased toward INCREASING REAL VALUE. In Sorosian debtism. businesses DO NOT perform normal business. They serve two purposes: increase share value and please the satanic dysmorality of NYC. The best way to achieve both goals is to eliminate production and kill workers. The whole system is thus biased toward DEATH. Bernie's proposal is weak and overly compromised, and can't possibly reach any condition approaching real Sharia or real socialism, but at least he seems to understand the proper meaning of the word.
