Democratic Socialism v Soviet style socialism, v Communism

Hello:


I have NO idea how come nobody KNOWS this shit..  Truly..  MISUNDERSTANDING it will cause Trump's re-election.  So, lemme help... 


Soviet style socialism REQUIRES government ownership of industry rather than being held by private individuals. Democratic Socialism, on the other hand, works WITHIN a capitalist system, leaving the means of production in private hands..


Politically speaking, Communism DEMANDS complete control by a single political party. Unlike communism, however, democratic socialism doesn't dictate what kind of government be set up. Democratic Socialism calls for a democratically elected government.


You get that, right?? BIG difference, wouldn't you agree?

Well usually in a debate you present a conflict, and this is not a conflict. Feels more like you're trying to lecture us, which is the opposite of trying to start an informative debate.

This is exactly how Communists in Venezuela sold them Communism. The cheese in the mouse trap technique.

You can't really ignore the fact that democratic socialism is thriving in several countries, and is outperforming capitalism when it comes to things like defeating corruption, poverty, illness, illiteracy, and many other things.

What you're doing is categorizing countries like Denmark, Norway and Sweden in the same pile as Venezuela - which honestly just shows that you don't really know what you're talking about.

All you did was call Capitalism "Democratic Socialism" to feel better about Capitalism by calling it "Democratic Socialism".
