To the Editor,
Most Americans cannot even correctly define socialism, yet they have been successfully propagandized into having a knee-jerk aversion to it. Trump and his conservative cohorts, in attempting to retain power, are trading on this bias by painting progressives as socialists.  Ascending political figures, mostly women such as Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, – who advocate public benefit at the expense of the wealthy, are  in an attempt to defame them  as  branded socialists by the right wing.
