We're the greatest, most powerful country in the world yet just a tweak or two away from becoming Venezuela.

I know, I know.
They just didn’t do it right.

No they didn't since China is a socialist country and has beaten the US at their own game and plan to be the dominate nation of the world in nine years.
Yeah, but Venezuela claims to Democratic Socialist, just like Bernie and your beloved squad.
It also depends on organization and leadership and the US has managed to be a state funded corporation for 150 years and survived.

Debt is what makes capitalism function, the guy at the end is the one who gets screwed . Would you prefer to be a hunter-gather guy or an agrarian raising yer own food and making yer own clothes?

They didn't do what right? Socialism? For any system of government to work there must be order. Never had that in Venezuela, ever. The theft of resources from that continent has been an ongoing source of strife and warfare since Columbus. All they have ever seen of capitalism is destruction of the land and impoverishment of the people. Of course they are going to turn towards alternatives. Problem is, you can't create public order out of thin air in a country that has never known anything other than brutally taking what you want. Colonialism sucked, dictatorship sucked, banana republic sucked and socialism sucked for Venezuela. Solve that one.

All of the political/economic systems in operation in the world exist on a social and environmental structure which is artificial and not natural..

thats the problem,,, politic and the economy have to be two different things,,

why do I and another person have to have the government involved in a business deal???

you should learn the difference between free market capitalism and government ran capitalism,,,
