    You appear to be confused over your goals and actual results.

    Mutual aid societies were actually pretty successful and are far closer to socialist ideology than welfare.

    Not at all, you seem to not understand the difference between a socialist state run by psychopaths and actual communism.

    Wait, a society where everyone helps each other? I thought human nature prevented this? Now tell me why communism isn't viable.

    Socialism like modern liberalism usually needs psychopaths to do their dirty work.

    Just like the conservatives need psychopaths, this kind of discussion adds nothing to anything.

    Not really. Socialism involves a considerable amount of immoral acts that must be taken for the system to be put in place and function, which usually speaking people aren't so happy with doing themselves.
