    most Americans have the message of "capitalism good" beaten into their heads from the time they enter school.

      about socialism, they like it to handicapping the capable just to make things "equal" It's incredible how poorly they understand socialism.  it's critics have degenerated at this point into utter strawman fallacies.

    •  you tell them marx didn't advocate perfect equalit (0+ / 0-)

      and about historical l materialism and how he freely admitted a fair distribution wouldn't be equal unless our productivity capacity was so amazing no one needed to work and they stare at you telling you the national socialist party of Germany was socialist and you just spit out your drink and laugh. yes. and north korea is a republic. Lmfao.

      Plus hitler intervened in the economy all right to  shore up the war power but hitler's "socialsim" was nonmarxian national socialism.

      ALl "real" socialist these days are antinationalist. and not in the sense of being "against their nation and in favor of some other " but in the sense of being against the entire idea of nations. One BIG union.
