I don't know what Chatango is, but was thinking maybe he's a super expert on something else equally specific outside of politics as well.

Bill Maher is not a socialist let alone a marxist, so I wouldn't expect him to have a "correct" definition of socialism. He, as some people here, believes socialism is a form os state capitalism. ...
