    A Failed Socialist State

    Has there ever been a failed socialist state (i.e A socialist state that has either collapsed into anarchy and/or a capitalist state OR A state that has economically failed)?
    Moreover out of curiosity to be honest, These countries CANNOT be included: USSR, North Korea, Cuba, Eastern Bloc States (i.e 1980s eastern europe)

    Re: A Failed Socialist State

    Has there even been a purely socialist state? No. So there cannot be a failed socialist state in that terms.

    By definition, Socialism IS a state that has failed.

    Socialism applies to: Syndicalism, State Socialism or a Majority of Nationalised Industries (in comparison to private sector) In this context.

    Well there has never been a nation like this that is purely in these contexts.

    Why can't those countries be included?

    A purely socialist state can't exist, not in modern times.
    All those countries you excluded are failed attempts at creating "pure" socialist states.

    Not really.
    Greece is still largely a market orientated economy.

    they failed because power is in one set of hands, and those hands are always tyrannical.

    that is why democracy is another failed form of government, because in time the majority becomes tyrannical.......be it direct or representative.
