Utopian ideas are great, have as many as you want.

But don't accuse me (constantly, across multiple platforms) of being objectively "wrong" because I'm exploring a practical, policy-based approach to understand real world socialism grounded in the work of actual academics working in the field.

I am not a utopianist, I am a political scientist in training and I am interested in systems, not big nice-sounding ideas.
