  •  When someone cries Socialism!, tell them THIS: (11+ / 0-)

    No, I'm not a socialist, I'm a social democrat.  Communism failed in the late 20th century, and laissez-faire capitalism is failing right now.  That leaves only two systems left standing.  

    One is oligarchy, with a tiny super-rich class and a tiny middle class and a large lower class held down by force.  

    The other is social democracy, as practiced in much of Europe, where the rich don't have quite as much but there's a very lare middle class, and very few in the lower class.  

    Those are your choices, and if you think you can become part of the aristocracy, you're dreaming.
