    Human nature, not capitalism, is the bane of socialism.

    Nope... Dont have a socialist professor..
    From what i have been told about my professors political positions and what i have picked up on for those professors that dont share them goes as follows:
    1.)Self described moderate
    2.)Professor who worked in the Clinton administration is a liberal
    3.)Moderate conservative
    4.)And a liberal/some hints of progressivism.

    Ever wonder why there aren't many many more of him getting elected to Parliament?
    Maybe because they cant get corporate or lobbyist backing
    Maybe because there are actually some socialists in the labor party and one in the US senate

    Or why Eugene V. Debs didn't even come close to smelling the Whitehouse lawn, let alone serving there?
    Same as above...

    See post #334.
    People act in what they believe to be in their best interests, as is their nature.
    Most often, socialism opposes this.

    I worked hard for it, I earned it, I deserve it, I don't want to share it with lazy people just because we're citizens of the same nation. Or how about, Mine! Mine! I want more! I want it all! This, sadly, comprises a great deal of human nature......and it generally doesn't fit well with the whole socialist mantra.

    Can you own your own thriving corporation under socialism?

    Are you telling me the people aren't heavily regulated under socialism?

    You do realize you own things or whatever it be under socialism.....

    People act in what they believe to be in their best interests, as is their nature.
    Well you can still act under your best interest.....

    Most often, socialism opposes this.
    Naaa....
    You have the human right to ownership.
