This pretty muchs sums it up. AOC Derangement Syndrome.

Conservatives tend to respond to fear more strongly than liberals do, according to Bobby Azarian, a neuroscientist whose expertise in anxiety has led him to examine political behaviors. His research has found that the brains of conservative people are likely to display the same attention biases as the brains of people with anxiety.

“The one main cognitive difference is that conservatives are more sensitive to threat,” he said. “Their fears are sometimes exaggerated. I think they fear her.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s power is a direct threat to conservatives because her very existence in Congress as a young, Latina, working-class woman threatens to upend the social order that has kept white men in the ruling class for centuries. (Eighty-eight percent of House Republicans are white men, most are over the age of 50, and the party’s voters are ...e and male.) On top of that, she is using her position and platform to directly challenge that order ― to attempt to get money out of politics, raise taxes on the super-rich and level the playing field.

“She doesn’t just challenge the patriarchy, she’s challenging the race, class, and gender hierarchies all at once, as well as the capitalist system that requires member of Congress be wealthy before they get there,” said Caroline Heldman, a gender and politics professor at Occidental College. “That’s remarkably threatening.”

lol That explanation sounds about right.

But what the staus quo does on a daily basis is also remarkably threatening. Still not giving them a medical pass for having no empathy toward other human beings. We all have fear.

Total Socialism is like Libertarianism, it's a meme, it's never been tried because there are fatal flaws with instituting it. We already have socialistic aspects of society that we've had in place for a long time, so anyone who thinks that we're going to become Venezuela is an idiot, but we aren't going to become Europe either, at least not for several generations.
