Hello C:

It's true, socialISM doesn't work.. But socialISTIC programs like Medicare and your local fire department, work pretty well within a capitalist framework.

None of those programs fit under the definition of socialism.

Those running the Democrat Party are pushing for the version that doesn't work.

Hello C:

Yeah, I hear that when I tune into FOX News.. But, if you just opened your eyes and LOOKED around, you'd see that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are anything BUT socialists.. But, I GOT it..

Look.. Do yourself a favor... Step away from the FOX News. It's rotting your brain.

The Trump Party runs their people. The people run the Democratic Party. I don't know of many people in the Democratic Party that want to be slaves. WE want what the "Grand Old Party" used to want until Gingrich, McConnell and Trump shredded it. It DID work then, Democrats are working to get it BACK. The Trump way will come to "You BETTER work, if you WANT to eat"! …. whether you are 90, have no legs, are suffering from cancer and can't afford the capitalists drug prices, whether you have no husband … and he left you with six kids … whatever! There are different kinds of slavery and if you ARE one, for whatever reason, you'd better be in a "socialistic society" or you AND your children will be "Trumped"! (Similar to being "Putinized")! :-(

Socialism is more like You work, I work and we eat due to the other's work just as much as our own.

It's naive but fair if everyone involved plays their part.

Often the loudest professors of altruism want something from you.

The naïveté of socialism is in the notion that moral intuitions evolved for families and small groups are preferable for larger society. It is literally primitive.

And if any one person doesn’t “do their part” for the whole, either they are forced into action for the benefit of whole, or the whole is forced to act for the benefit of the free rider.

This is the nature of any team effort, including capitalistic team efforts. It isn’t specific to socialism.

Wrong. Capitalism is:

I work either to avoid poverty or to gain the capacity to have luxury. No other reason to work at all is valid unless I both feel that I no longer need to avoid poverty or seek luxury for the time being.
