Step 1 for dealing with a sophist socialist:

Ask them where government money comes from.

Step 2: Watch them do mental gymnastics as they explain why government can spend your money better than you can.

Step 3: Enjoy signs of struggle.
.....people are selfish but people in government are altruistic...that's why we have to pay them......taxation makes us all wealthier......can't you see the safety and prosperity it's created.......

Step 4: See if they still foster a sophisticated attitude.
