    Yes Stalinism has evolved. Now it can kill people with drones are computers. Thanks God that Stalin didn't have this technology, or the human race would be extinct by now.

    I don't think Stalinism is the definition of Socialism. Next.

    Nonsense? Are you from Europe? Even Africans laugh at you how you have given up your whole life and all control over it, to some all-knowing, all-verifying, all-enforcing national computer system.

    Was that passed on to you from some old hag with rings on her toes in a tent at the carnival or did some scraggly geezer give it to you straight from a black cat that crossed his path?

    Socialism is government control of capital. Period. The rest is just details. When we say we don't want more socialism, we're saying we don't want to expand government control of capital. It has nothing to do with views on Stalinism, or Venezuela, or Sweden.

    I agree with you. Socialism would not allow people to work for billionaires. It does allow them to starve to death.

    Nothing to eat, but at least no one is working for a wealthy person.

    In fact, under socialism, you might not have to work at all.

    If your gov would take care of your country┬┤s problems instead of creating problems in other countries, everything would be fine.
