    I think someone once tried to implement what you’re planning to learn, Huey. It resulted in Reagan deploying Marines to rescue medical students and nutmeg.

    Watch the academy award winning The Lives Of Others. Filmed and written by East Germans; it’ll give you a taste of how great socialism is.

    It was authoritarianism, not socialism, that was the ultimately fatal flaw of East Germany (and the rest of the Warsaw Pact countries).
    Google “happiest people in the world Denmark” – that’ll give you an idea of how effectively applied socialism really works.

    Yes its interesting how some people are so swayed by a name or a title, they think Hitler was a liberal because Nazi’s used the word Socialist, they think the applied Communist governments were liberal for the same reason when the truth of the matter is that the Fascists and Communists were oppressive authoritarianistic dictatorships that weren’t in the least bit ‘Liberal’. Some people think that a name is the reality and they don’t need to find the truth because the name has already told them everything they need to know. I read in these comments people often heaping hate and scorn on Marx without having ever learned a thing about him. If they had bothered they would have learned he was appalled that his name had been applied to what happened in Russia and said many times that he was not a Marxist. He wrote a speculative theory for a time far in the future when mankind has evolved morally and spiritually beyond the greed and fear that rules so much of so many people’s lives. He never once thought that his dream of a Social Utopia would occur during his lifetime or for long after.

    After the failure in Beirut, he had to do something no matter how asinine to take the heat of so many marines getting killed..

    That wasn’t Socialism it was Communism which with only a few tweaks was no different than any other kind of strong arm dictatorship.

    Any Capitalism isn’t necessarily bad. Why it needs Socialism to temper its psychopathic mind set of markets over people. And Socialism needs to be free of the gray leadenness to have the vital spark of creativity to flourish.

    And it has worked here very well since the New Deal. However the Neo-Liberal Capitalists have been working to undermine it and let Disaster Capitalism run rampant.

    Russia an China has no rampant Capitalist phase so they simply traded one dictatorship for another and the people remained peasants.
