Most industrialized nations are a hybrid of the feared word "socialized" I wonder if the people so fearful of the word; enjoy the address specifics and delivery of United States postal service. How about your states national guard, perhaps the Army, Navy Air Force, or Marines for our national military? Our teachers and road crews? National Medicare and state Medicaid for our old, Social Security for retirees, Workers compensation for workers injured on the job. Our police and fire departments, all of which are socialized. Please do not exhibit fear for a word being demonized. The word socialization means little more than group thinking, and the education there of.
