Are you really that thick Obs!!! It is a representation of the way that Socialism works - take from those that have worked for something to give the fruits of their labour to those that couldn't be bothered to work for themselves. :roll: :roll:

Socialism as practised by socialists is actually the exploitation of the many by the few under the guise of being egalitarian.

Is there anywhere on the face of the earth that you could point to as an example of this, or is it another one from your Great Big Ladybird Book of What I Reckon?

 

Great thread, thanks for starting it.

Fugtifino, Nazi Germany, the USSR, China, North Korea. All places practising "socialism" where the great mass of people are or were ruled by an elite who exploited them. Give me capitalism every day, at least with a capitalist system you have a chance of getting rid of exploiters without the danger of being thrown into a concentration camp.

So USSR doesn't stand for Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics and the Nazis weren't the National SOCIALIST Party then? Socialism has never worked because it is against human nature. You will always get people rising to the top who then go on to exploit the masses. It might be a wonderful concept, but completely unworkable in reality.

You really do have a simplistic view of the world Obs. If only it were that simple it would have been done long ago.

It's been tried many times, they call them "revolutions"; but one elite tends to get replaced by another elite. What's not been tried properly, is a constitutionally built in progressive tax system that whoever the elite are, they pay proportionally to the general wellbeing of all. :wink:

As I said Obs, if it was that simple we would have such a system already. Unfortunately for your theory it doesn't appear to have popular support.
