    Nope. Factually you're just wrong on this.

    No it's not. Having one person work less leaving a job opening for someone else is not a characteristic of socialism.

    Holding people back to let others succeed is a characteristic feature of socialism.

    Its principle. Has nothing to do with brute facts and everything to do with a way of thinking. Sure, there is not socialist government that says "oh you can't work so someone else can," yet a simple examination of the ideology that leads to socialism, this line of thinking permeates it the entire way.

    What part of capitalism believes in forced equality through redistribution? I must have missed that part.

    You're changing your own words. Can't blame you for that. Your own words were stupid

    But here's what you said:
    Holding people back to let others succeed is a characteristic feature of socialism.
    Note how your words say nothing about forced equality

    Who said anything about forced equality or redistribution?

    Oh wait, that was you.

    That's not true either. Ever work with the Amish? Very socialistic, and full of hard workers. There are a lot of myths about all forms of government. But much depends on the who, the where, the why and how it was done. Such overarching statements as the one you made are simply not factually correct.
