im not talking about russian or chinese style socialism. thats not true socialism,its a twisted version of totalitarianism. its definitely not democratic socialism. for every venezuela offered as an example of failed socialism i can offer up a failed capitalistic society.
germany,france,scandinavia and a whole host of countries have varying degrees of democratic socialist economies and have standards of living equal to or higher than teh US without the huge wealth disparity we have,plue they have better education and healthcare systems.
so how is democratic socialism bad???
