    What the **** do you think Hitler was doing when he was seizing resources, commodities and even art and redistributing such wealth to loyal clowns who were alleged Aryans, or better yet non-Jewish Germans?

    I have news for you - Hitler was stealing everything and redistributing 10% of the fortune to his idiot cronies - kinda like our federal government, just a lot less severe.
    So you think Hitler's redistribution of wealth from the ordinary Germans to his cronies is a classic sign of socialist thinking in action, do you. That's pretty brain dead.

    Okay.

    Yes, there is a literal definition, and there is also pseudo-socialism.

    Just as long as the ends justify the means.

    True socialism was never possible, at least not on a national scale.

    We need an alloy of capitalism and socialism, just as alloys of certain metals have superior properties.

    But the socialism must be NOT for the corporations as it is now, but rather for the people, as in "government of, by and for the people"

    And yet you seem incapable of coming up with it. I wonder why that is?
