This Needs To Be Said......

The following comment points out the American public's misperception of what socialism really is. Just like communism. I view Republicanism as something I fear!

So you don't like "socialism"..think its evil..? Our Military, Police and Fire Departments are all "socialistic" public use since you hate time your mugged, your house is on fire, or our country "invaded" don't call any one to help you...our schools, our libraries, our roads are also "socialistic public use" entities..(you stay off and out of) public drinking fountains for you.....or public restrooms along the highway....stay out of our National, State and city (public) more "public" think a dollar is enough to run your fat ass all around town on a bus..? When you get old and ill..can't work any longer go die in the street..don't ask for any "socialistic" public help like social security, social services or medicare..get into legal trouble..can't afford a Lawyer? Pro-Bono or court appointed legal aide for you either, worthless turd! You don't like socialism, try life in this country with out using our (socialistic) "common public" facilities just one day!..or go to the countries that have no form of it.....Iraq or Saudi Arabia, maybe even India. comment by chabuka over at Raw Story.

Socialists mainly share the belief that capitalism unfairly concentrates power and wealth among a small segment of society that controls capital, creates an unequal society, and does not provide equal opportunities for everyone in society. Therefore socialists advocate the creation of a society in which wealth and power are distributed more evenly based on the amount of work expended in production, although there is considerable disagreement among socialists over how, and to what extent this could be achieved

Joint stock companies are socialist at the core. Share the risk, share the wealth. This is the basis of Capitalism.
Monopolies, concentration of wealth, every man for himself is Mercantilism.

Socialism works well with Common Law, Representative Government and Capitalism.

Social Darwinism (dog eat dog) thrives under Civil code, Monarchs or Dictators a Mercantilism.

Confucianism is the basis for Mongol law, autocratic rulers and Communism.

If you want to live some place really screwed up have your laws, government and economy led by religion. It's called a theocracy, but it's really hell on earth. Think the middle east. Middle ages (sometimes called the Age of Faith)

the only middle east state that is a true theocracy is Iran, and it is debatable whether or not Iran classifies as Middle East.

Saudi Arabia is a monarchy, but Islamic law rules. The Kings would be fools to cross the Mullahs.
