  •  does socialism have a static definition? (0+ / 0-)

    huh... well... like i said... i am not an expect on socialism.  i understood the idea of a government taking children away from parents and paying employees of the government to care for the children to be a socialist kind of thing to do.  like having socialized medicine where all the doctors are employees of the state.

    •  "Taking children away from parents and paying (0+ / 0-)

      employees of the government to care for the children" does not sound like socialism, it does not even sound benign...I have a feeling you are not describing your situation quite accurately. Were you raised in a government group home?

      •  no, i was a foster child for 6 years (0+ / 0-)

        i was taken away from my birth parents by the state and my foster parents were certified paid employees of the state

        maybe there are people who foster other people's children for free.  family members.  god parents.  but state foster care pays people to foster wards of the state.
