Even in a Socialist Society, there is the "ruling elite" and these uber rich Socialists plans are to be one. They are being led to a slaughter that even they can't envision. Especially those with a little wealth but nothing near the wealth needed to "gain power". They are living in a delusional world and their "feel good" ideas are going to be their self-destruction. They would gladly sacrifice their liberty for an ounce of security- even if it is a false security leading them to their demise.
