Socialism isn't a
horrible idea when implemented properly. Socialism is working
fantastically in other countries that have implemented it such as
Norway, Sweden, & Denmark for example. If you go down the line on
individual programs you can see those countries beat us in almost every
category including among others healthcare, education, or lower crime
fact, the most recent study showed Finland was ranked number one in The
World Happiness Report. The study takes a variety of factors into
account, (Among Other Things) It looked into people's health &
access to healthcare, family relations, job security, as well as social
factors like political freedom & Government corruption.
I have personally taken the liberty of looking into the definition of Socialism, which is, "Any of various economic & political theories advocating
collective or Governmental ownership & administration of the means
of production & distribution of goods or services." This means
Socialism is nothing more than a program, good, or service owned &
or provided by a Collective or Government.
So based on that definition you can find right here in the U.S. that
some of our most cost effective, efficient, & popular programs are
pure Socialism, such as The Roads/Highways, Public Libraries, The Post
Office, Public Schools, Public Parks, The Sewer System, The Fire
Department, The Police Department, State & Snow Removal, Town /
State-Run Beaches, Unemployment Insurance, Social Security, etc… etc...
If the people who say they hate Socialism so much really dislike it as
much as they claim, I recommend they stop using all of these programs
