    Not real Socialism… right?

    • Posted by Daniel Moreno, at Reply

      fl00fydragon Wrong Socialism in Germany was dismantled when the German Democratic Republic was integrated into it’s imperialist west German counterpart. I’m pretty sure the workers had it better when they possessed state power, a planned economy designed in the interest of the workers, full employment, subsidized food, free education to their highest capacity, socialized medicine, subsidized housing, and a free antifascist society. The current unified Capitalist Germany pales in comparison to the GDR

      Venezuelas economy is mostly private

      Daniel Moreno So your just in denial that the USSR and the rest of the eastern block was a horrible place to live? They were corrupt one party systems were bureaucrats mismanaged the economy and workers suffered because they didn’t actually control the means of production the authoritarian state did.

      It’s stops being Socialism when it runs out of other people’s money.

      Actually that’s not socialism, actually that’s one form of “socialism”.
      There is not posssibility of actually fullblown socialism. Neither is there the possibility of fullblown capitalism, because it would require a grey mass of people with the same interests and the same mind, basically.

      But socialism as such a direction government can take, can be mixed into a state. So, with “socialist state” or “socialist leader”, we basically mean someone who enacts socialist norms or enacts bills on the basis of socialist goals.

      As a economical project, socialism is damned to fail. in every circumstance, where almost ffullblown socialism was in reach, it all collapsed under its own weight.

      To give you advise, rather believe in compromise than in ideologies. There can be nothing but compromise and the best is to be found yet. If people do not agree with you, you’ll ither have to force them and risk instability, or you can compromise and find a way that benifits everybody.
      Equality of outcome should not bee the goal, because humans as living beings with different lives and therefore different qualities aren’t equal in any other sense but the sense of being human, which is actually not much. We can only hope on unequal society where everybody can be happy. That#s the goal, that should be the goal, and if you do not agree, you may just start your plan of building working camps, beecause the socilaists in Russia knew what’ll comee if peeople disagree.

    For all the trolls who are going to blame the Venezuelan situation on socialism it’s a lot more complicated than that:
    The Venezuelan economy had a great reliance on oil
    The wealthy and upper middle class partook in capital flight
    And the government is extremely corrupt.

    There are other things that contribute to their situation as well but those are the main ones.

    • Posted by YouthInEyesAsian, at Reply

      You idiot! The Venezuelan economy had an over reliance on oil *BECAUSE* they had a centrally planned economy! They invested in schools rather than refineries and ended up having to sell crude.

      The wealthy and upper class took flight *BECAUSE* the system is failing.

      The government is extremely corrupt *BECAUSE* it’s a socialist dictatorship.

      1 is the fault of socialism.
      2 is the fault of socialism.
      3 is the fault of socialism.
      Socialism has destroyed Venezuela like it does to every country.

      Sorry kid I’m not going to go down this rabbit hole with you. I’ve seen ignorant people like you everywhere always looking to defend socialism and communism deflecting saying, what they practice wasn’t true socialism, or the Soviet Union wasn’t a true communist country because “the people” did not own the means of production. And that they still had a class system of wealthy elites. Guess what? This is what socialism and communist create, and they have a long track record that you should be able to identify if you weren’t stuck on stupid.

    Before trolls scream “look at socialism”, progressives are not advocating government ownership of the means of production. Progressives want social programs that exist in all modern countries like universal healthcare. There is a difference.

    • Posted by ASyntheticSoul, at Reply

      I find it funny how the same progressives who want big government in the US (free college, universal healtcare) are uninformed or blissfully ignorant of government incompetence and our oligarchy system. America is already more socialist than capitalist, because cronyism and big government manipulating the free market (Cable company monopolies, small businesses hurting, middle class shrinking due to government mandates). Fix the government first before you start asking for special programs. The government can’t even manage the VA or the budget correctly; adding more programs is just going to waste more spending and hurt all citizens financially, including the poor. They really have an unrealistic view of politics and economics.

    • Posted by Stan Czyk, at Reply

      You know, except for Antifa, the anarcho-syndicalists, the anarcho-communists, the various socialist wings of various political movements, Black Lives Matter wanting community ownership of policing, etc.

      And I very rarely hear the argument end at “we just want universal healthcare”. Give an inch, they like to take the mile. Also, not everyone who disagrees with you is a troll. Thats the behaviour causing progressives to lose so hard.

    The problem is SOCIALISM!

    • Posted by john rordriguez, at Reply

      bigbaddawg101 Yeah and they had a reliance on oil because they siezed private property and industries, which discouraged foreign investors from investing in Venezuela. This also caused the rich to move out of Venezuela since they didn’t want the government to sieze their wealth. We can clearly see that their socialist beliefs caused these problems.

    • Posted by bluetrilobite, at Reply

      bigbaddawg101
      Yes that is your excuse this time around. I’m sure you have other excuses to justify why every other socialist nation to have ever existed also failed regardless of what resources they had.
      It is almost as if socialism runs against basic human nature. ie your work, your rewards.

      There is such a thing as balance. Socialism on its own is bad, just as capitalism on its own is bad. You need elements of both in balance for a country to prosper.

      I’m Venezuelan and I tell you Chavez and Maduro have the most corrupt and incompetent government. They have socialist/communist ideas and are best friends with the Castros but a country as rich as Venezuela has no money because they stole it all…
      The Socialism that Bernie wants is the one in Canada and Scandinavia, which without THAT MUCH corruption runs much better than the US health care system and the US rampant student debt crisis.

    • Posted by Feminazi Frequency, at Reply

      +Gondwana Dude, Canada and Scandinavia are not goddam socialist. They rank higher on the market freedom index than the USA. Having publicly-funded healthcare doesn’t make you socialist, having the means of production owned by the government makes you socialist. The government doesn’t own private businesses in Canada or the Nordic countries. They just tax and spend more.

    • Posted by Amish Supercomputer, at Reply

      Ironically the US government spends more on healthcare per person then just about every single other country (last I checked we were in 4th place). In other words, by GDP spent per person, our healthcare system is one of the most socialized healthcare industries in the world. Want to see market healthcare? Go look at Singapore who has the lowest government involvement in their healthcare industry out of any modern nation.

      Student debt is largely caused by high-risk government loans being given out like candy to retards. If they didn’t not exist, we’d barely have a problem. TL;DR: Both those problems are directly caused by the US government’s policies. If the government didn’t do anything, we’d be 10000% times better off.

Interfering with the market make investment in work places too risky, what leads to people having no job and a stable source of income, what leads to mass poverty that leads to the current capitalist revolt.

    • Posted by Some Rando, at Reply

      The only government with the word “socialist” in it’s name to lift people out of poverty was in 1930s Germany.

    • Posted by Nick Smith, at Reply

      YES! And China’s poor was lifted out out of poverty from Communism; however, that didn’t last, did it?! It can’t last! This is what moderates and Conservatives have been telling you since you tossed on your Bernie shirt years ago! Socialism is a temporary snake oil solution. It cannot survive as a legitimate economic system.
