Agreed. Venezuela's primary problem, besides the fact that it has a poor relationship with the dominant regional power (e.g. America), is that it's poorly implemented socialism. I agree that bad socialism (namely, price-fixing) is the cause of their economic disaster. That's one bad case amongst dozens of good cases.

Go get some folks together who want to be socialists and then divide up the wealth equally. Let me know when you've done that.

Right, but that's COMMUNISM, not socialism. I love having political discussion with illiterates.

So how much of other people's wealth do you feel you and your friends deserve?

I don't think you know the actual definition of socialism if you think your examples are socialism.

Fact: Karl Marx never ran a company. Never held political office. Never oversaw any accounts. Never had a job. Any job. He was supported throughout his entire life by his friend, Friedrich Engles, the son of a wealthy factory owner. Marx is considered by many to be the greatest social, political, and economic philosopher of all time. All applications of his theories have ended in failure.

No one in this thread is discussing Marxism, bro. Couldn't be further off topic. You're illustrating exactly what I'm talking about.

Socialism for the win!

You are, in fact, discussing Marxism. Kill yourself, yid.

People conflate Socialism with Marxian Socialism, it is deeply ingrained in normie nomenclature and most Democratic Socialist parties are extremely pozzed.

Libertarians don't. We agree you're all socialist. We just want to point out there are ways to be less socialist and it usually goes better.

See that's cool. This is why I like libertarians. Fresh point of view. I'll concede that if you allow Obama types to have free reign, they'll run the economy into the ground. Trump for the win!

Agreed. It's just frustrating because it tends to rear it's head when most of us are discussing things like private school vouchers, & etc. which is a shame because ideas like that deserve serious consideration. Instead it all quickly gets derailed into economic theory, which the normies are never going to care about.

The only reason socialism is not here now is because all the socialists get in the way.

Besides, who wants to lie in bed on a Sunday morning with the love of your life, a bacon sandwich and the only newspaper you have to to read is the Daily Worker?

Seriously though, America is a very socialist country.

We need to fix that.

Most of the things that you're typical Voat Fag actually likes - hunting, manufacturing, and a strong military - are almost quintessentially socialist.

Not according to any definition in any context.

Unless you plan to wake up early at like 3AM and pave the road in front of your house

Shill harder, you fucking idiot.

manually inspect all of the crops you plan to eat later

Yeah, we should be doing that. And?

home school your kids

YES, we SHOULD be doing that. AND?

and you're okay with people invading our country, you're a socialist.

Literally the opposite of socialism, you fucking idiot.

Communism and Socialism are almost completely unrelated.

Aside from their identical policies and goals.

Socialism has way more in common with capitalism than it does with communism.

Said no one, ever.

Generally, socialism is an implementation of capitalism.

You’re either stoned or brain dead.

If anyone here has spent plenty of time living in Somalia, or living on board of a pirate vessel, etc. and you want to claim that you like TRUE capitalism, then good for you. High five.

“MUH SOMALIA MAY MAY” Fun fact: Somalia as a failed state has a higher GDP than it did as a communist country.

Capitalism is like rule by Mark Zuckerberg, Bernie Maddof, or Rupert Murdoch.

Nope, you have no fucking clue what capitalism is, either.

you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

Irony.

Please educate yourself and stop confusing actual political issues with socialism memes.

Please kill yourself before we get our hands on you, hymie, or you’re going to wish the holocaust HAD happened.
