Sounds sort of like what they said about abolitionists, those nuts on the fringe who insisted that slavery was wrong, going counter to mainstream U.S. thinking....

Just an observation.

Your analogy doesn't hold. Socialism has failed every place that has tried it. Reparations have never been successful either. Abolition, on the other hand, has had much success. And in America abolitionists, weren't "nuts on the fringe." The majority of Americans wanted to abolish slavery. It was only in the South where the majority wanted to continue to slavery.

I choose to live in the Caribbean in planning for my infinite future, to try to grow accustomed to the heat...
