" China’s economy which is blowing the doors off of the United States."
That all started when they moved away for a totally centralized economy and allowed private property and a more or less free market.
" 1. Nordic countries—Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark—with the highest self-reported rates of happiness in the world . All proudly practice democratic socialism."
No, they do not practice democratic socialism. They are all advanced capitalist economies with private ownership of the means of production. What hey have an advanced welfare system that is financed by the successful capitalist economy.
" 1. The internet —yes, it was invented by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, in 1969, and only later commercialized."
True, and if it were for the “government” it would still be used to talk betwen ballistic missile silos.
Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea are all actual socialist economies. They ain’t doing too great last time i checked.
Socialism had only brought death and misery everywhere. Oh, and pollution and destruction of the environment.
Then again. Maybe Americans need good dose of Socialism. Noting makes you appreciate freedom more than standing in line at 0500 t get your rations. The going to a government subsidized job day in day out for the rest of your life. The coming hone and put some sweaters on cuz it’s 25F outside and there’s no heat in your 1 bedroom apartment where you live with your wife and kid.
It’s only been 30 years since the socialist workers paradises collapsed. Have we already forgotten?
