Not just Socialism - here is an exchange with a Muslim I found instructive:

Dr. Muhammad Wahdan: I have no relation to reality. I am talking about how things should be.
Interviewer: You are a religious sheik, from Al-Azahar University. You cannot say you have no relation to reality.
Dr. Muhammad Wahdan: Reality is a mistake, we must rectify it.

And AOG is always fond of pointing out the MAL (Modern American Left) fascination with logo-realism.
