    Socialism is just a word . Growing social inequality is a reality.

    However, this is a short term problem that will correctly correct itself once these situations are resolved. Yes, markets here, in Europe, and in China have systematic problems that will cause crashes in the future, but those are not in play today.



    I see zero chance of that happening until after we experience a total economic collapse. That will happen when the global debt crisis explodes in our faces.

    I see one good thing to come out of it in the long run....

    Our complete reliance on China for damb near everything.

    This has got to stop and should be stopped.

    The COVID-19 crisis has made us..." See the light"......I hope
    NONE ARE HELPLESS...There are only those WEAK ENOUGH to believe they are...and those STRONG ENOUGH to revel in the knowledge they are not.

    Readin a WWI book, PJL, talks about growing social inequality being an unpinning and foundation for war. It's 1914.

    Socialists always fall for the same arguments, why is that?

    Since 1776, you are absolutely correct. But those battles ended slavery, prevented succession, defeated imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, Colonialist England forced to surrender at Yorktown. Then came the massive political battles. Voting rights. Private Property. We've battled through depression and plague. Wars including civil that saw entire cities annihilated.

    And you should come visit during our elections, PJL, we have some knock down drag out battles. Why, we just saw the Left's most qualified queen dethroned and sent for a walk in the woods. It was quite dramatic, great stuff indeed.

    Government supports losers through Socialism

    You'd be better off abandoning such narrow minded ideologies , and embracing good old fashioned commonsense ........it works much better in dealing with the real world .

    That is your belief but it is false since we are talking about government support.
