Socialism is what we see in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Canada, New Zealand, Finland, Iceland or the Netherlands. There is no socialism in Venezuela. There is no socialism in Cuba, China or North Korea. There was no socialism in the U.S.S.R. (notwithstanding what that second “S” stood for). Anyone can throw out a name, but that doesn’t make it so, it only makes them liars (but we already knew that).
There is good socialism and bad socialism.
