Because socialism is legitimately the right answer. Smart people often get the right answer.

It's because all of these smart people were thinking on a personal very small scale. It's easy to say let's get rid of all of our weapons of war and have world peace (a statement of good intention) But in the real world which unfortunately is the one we ALL live in there are others who are narcissistic and have a lack of empathy. They will rule over (by force) the people who believe that these ideas are sustainable in the real world. In socialism the same thing always happens the ultra wealthy have the resources to exit the socialist economy. The ruling class lives in luxury off the backs of the working class. The uninspired class gets larger and larger as the reward for hard work is eliminated and finally just like Venezuela the population is starving.

Yet again your genetic stupidity has let you down so let your education continue , Tessa was a socialist of the type you detest as in very wealthy , Marin Luther King was black and you claimed you hated niggers only last week , Jesus did not exist you claim also putting yourself at odds with academia on this view , Einstein like the others all rejected what you claim was the ideal form of socialism as in Stalinism and finally Orwell if he lived another year or two would have been a very wealthy capatilist as the royalties flooded in .

Finally not one of them were fans of the rabid racist Marx who like you detested blacks , lets leave the last words to your hero .....

For those who see Marx as their hero, there are a few historical tidbits they might find interesting. Nathaniel Weyl, himself a former communist, dug them up for his 1979 book, “Karl Marx: Racist.”

For example, Marx didn’t think much of Mexicans. When the United States annexed California after the Mexican War, Marx sarcastically asked, “Is it a misfortune that magnificent California was seized from the lazy Mexicans who did not know what to do with it?”

Engels shared Marx’s contempt for Mexicans, explaining: “In America we have witnessed the conquest of Mexico and have rejoiced at it. It is to the interest of its own development that Mexico will be placed under the tutelage of the United States.”

Marx had a racial vision that might be interesting to his modern-day black supporters. In a letter to Engels, in reference to his socialist political competitor Ferdinand Lassalle, Marx wrote:

It is now completely clear to me that he, as is proved by his cranial formation and his hair, descends from the Negroes who had joined Moses’ exodus from Egypt, assuming that his mother or grandmother on the paternal side had not interbred with a n—–. Now this union of Judaism and Germanism with a basic Negro substance must produce a peculiar product.

Engels shared Marx’s racial philosophy. In 1887, Paul Lafargue, who was Marx’s son-in-law, was a candidate for a council seat in a Paris district that contained a zoo. Engels claimed that Lafargue had “one-eighth or one-twelfth n—– blood.”

In a letter to Lafargue’s wife, Engels wrote, “Being in his quality as a n—–, a degree nearer to the rest of the animal kingdom than the rest of us, he is undoubtedly the most appropriate representative of that district.”

Marx was also an anti-Semite, as seen in his essay titled “On the Jewish Question,” which was published in 1844. Marx asked:

What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. … Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man—and turns them into commodities. … The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange. … The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.
