    Nope, give it a try at the state level.

    That is real socialism, the sort that was tried in Venezuela recently. Socialism is government for capitalism?? I don't understand that phrase. Do you mean socialism is government regulated capitalism? That's what nearly every nation in the world has in one form or another.

    Yes, true capitalism doesn't work.

    Nothing is more certain than the indispensable necessity of government, and it is equally undeniable, that whenever and however it is instituted, the people must cede to it some of their natural rights in order to vest it with requisite powers.

    True (unregulated) capitalism doesn't work. Neither does socialism. What works is a government regulated, but not government run, economy. Most disagreements are over how much regulation and which regulations, are necessary.

    If that's so, then the alternative to socialism is anarchy. That hasn't proven terribly practical, either.
