    Re: Why Socialism Fails

    If I was born in 1946, I rather be born in West German than the United States of America. The socialism of West Germany rebuilt the country and gave a great deal to help its people. The socialism of West Germany to reunite with East Germany has built a strong central European nation. Germany, is the most important nation in Europe and is replacing the United Kingdom as the leader in the west and central Europe. The United States of America is withdrawing leadership in Europe, and with Asia as well. It's citizens want to build a wall to keep out of being a country of North America.

    China is a socialist country, and will be the economic powerhouse of Asia and the world during the mid twenty-first century.

    Don't worry, once we kick out the liar in chief and get a proper president, senate, and congress in place, you'll have to "suffer" under socialism. There's literally nothing you can do to stop progress bud, so sit back relax and cry all you want on a debate board in about 5 years time.

    A huge majority of Americans don't want socialism. Hell, Nancy Pelosi, a liberal's liberal, doesn't even want socialism. You're drinking some very fermented kool aid if you think we are going to get Socialists elected to the presidency, the House, and the Senate.

    Go study late 19th century laissez faire capitalism and you'll understand why we will never remotely go back there again.

    You think it making it's way through government is such fantasy, but you're entirely willing to magically funnel it to already wealthy individuals and corporations and pray for some trickle down?
    Where do you think money we give to the middle class goes veritas? Into socialism's black hole of hell, or maybe it gets spent back into the economy at a higher multiplier than wealthy getting a tax cut?

    Hyperbolic nonsense that's not even relevant.
    Giving someone money and having them spend it does not create lasting wealth for those doing the spending and that is the objective.

    I certainly did. You said that I don't understand what words mean so I asked you to define "social ownership of the means of production". You have failed to do so.

    I have never said "social ownership of the means of production". See, you once again fail to respond to what is actually said by me, and instead try and desperately change the subject.

    You want to move toward it. That is what wanting more capitalism means.
