    Socialism will work the many times it has failed it was just not done right. The countries that have it now are doing fine. The fact that they pay almost double in taxes compared to capitalist countries is a red herring meant to scare us away from socialism. We need to ignore the fact that these same countries are slowly pushing toward more capitalistic ideals.

    We of the so called educated elite know how to enact socialism that will work. We are so much smarter then the rest of the world.

    Read with heavy sarcasm.

    It's unbelievable to watch a nation devolve like this "right in front of your eyes", as it were. Now they're reporting no running water in *hospitals*, if you can imagine. Doctors can't scrub in before surgeries, so they're being postponed or rescheduled.

    It can happen here, it can happen anywhere, when you feel ignorant citizens a bunch of bald lies. Tragic to watch, though.

    Hospitals scrap surgeries, Venezuelans forgo showers as taps run dry

    Democratic Socialism works, they just didn’t do it right.
