Hasbo toys just introduced a hilarious version of Monopoly called “Monopoly: Socialism” and the liberals are furious — their perpetual state, granted.
This new version of their iconic capitalism game totally skewers the left’s idiotic and dangerous ideas about socialism.
Amusingly, the subtitle of the game is “winning is for capitalists.”
“This adult party edition of the Monopoly game has players moving around the board contributing to community projects … unless they can steal projects to get ahead,” the description on Amazon.com reads. “Contribute to the Community Fund … unless you choose to deplete it. Consider the best interest of the group … unless you want to forget that and just do what you need to do.”
“In the ‘Monopoly: Socialism’ game, players move around the board working together to make a better community by managing and contributing to projects such as a no-tip vegan restaurant, an all-winners school, or a museum of co-creation,” the description adds. “But nobody said that cooperation is easy! You’ll have issues with your neighbors, your DIY community projects go awry, you’re constantly voting to shake things up, and there’s always an emergency that requires dipping into the Community Fund! Contribute all 10 of your chips to win the game, unless the Community Fund runs out of money and everyone loses. So much for a socialist utopia.”
In the more famous version of the game, when players pass “GO” they get paid $200. But in this socialism version players who pass go are given a $50 “living wage” instead.
Winning is for capitalists. 💰💰💰 At least that's the message behind this parody of Monopoly. But in a Twitter thread that spread widely, a historian said the game gets socialism wrong. https://t.co/OaADlGbDbz

The game is not cheap at $99, but it is pretty darn funny.
Naturally, liberals are out of their tiny hive mind (beware, typical leftist foul language below):
It’s sort of weird that Hasbro has a version of Monopoly trying to mock socialism considering that the capitalist goal of the original game is to bankrupt your friends and take all their stuff https://t.co/S1fpXern9r

the "socialism" monopoly game just perfectly illustrates how brainfucked americans are after multiple generations of brainwashing and willful ignorance. monopoly was a game created by a socialist to show how infuriating the capitalist system is. fuck this country

Context is key.
If Monopoly Socialism has been published under a truly socialist regime, sure, there’s an argument for calling it protest art.
In current capitalist USA, it’s ill-informed punching down humour *at best*

I’m very appalled by the horrible misrepresentation of Socialism as featured in Hasbro’s new “Monopoly: Socialism”. The propaganda predates upon the young minds of children for the purpose of brainwashing and LITERALLY turning them to the Alt-Right/Neo-Nazis. pic.twitter.com/RK2Jhb5eq6

And one butt hurt liberal even wrote a whole threat attacking the game:
