Ok, we all know the Thatcherism about running out of other people's money.

But what about all the other problems? We got a good start in another thread.

Russia? Massive government corruption, organized crime that would give Elliot Ness a heart attack, widespread heavy duty substance abuse, low life expectancy, high suicide rate.

China? Government dictates life. Wanna have a kid? You gotta get permission. Social mobility? Ha ha ha! Case law and judicial interpretation? Ha ha ha! High suicide rate. Black market economy.

Socialism would have you believe everyone is equal but like in all other societies there is STILL an elite class that controls everything. Generally those that promote an overthrow and establishment of a socialist society are the ones that end up being the elite. They are probably the only ones that figure that out from the start and it's why they push it so hard. Socialism functions to a point but is far from the utopian dream it is built up to be. Maybe in 10,000 years mankind will be advanced enough for it to be successful but we are far from being as civilized as we need to be for that to happen.

No economic system works or endures if corruption is rampant.

I'll go with what my old Dartmouth econ professor told me, ''Doesn't matter what the economic system is or called....what matters is that we control it.''

Socialism cannot exist without reverting to communism. Otherwise it would revert back to capitalism.
I doubt that any of our resident liberals have ever been to a communist country.

I have, and the country consists mostly of slums, except the government buildings of course.

The BS spouted by our imbecile liberals is just that, BS.
