I believe socialism is the best of all political systems that we know of, especially in modern society.
Socialism involves political power being given to the general people. Political decisions are in the hands of the people and the people decide what general policies are passed. In this way, no one agency can have too much power, instead of having one or even a few people decide what they think is best.
Socialism is not Communism. Communism necessarily involves a dictatorship or an oligarchy. History has shown that when power is concentrated, people without power or means are generally neglected, even if they represent the majority. Pure socialism solves that problem.
Socialism also solves the problem of limited political participation.
The problem with a system like the one in the U.S. is that the party system limits us to the parties and what the parties propose to do. If we don't like the Democrats, we can choose the Republicans. If we don't like the Republicans, we choose the Democrats. It's either that or have no political voice because everything else is marginalized. So my political participation is limited to the Republican and Democrat platform? That's it? That's really dumb. What if the policies of the Democrats and the Republicans contradict the wants of the majority? There's literally nothing we can do except petition for change and hope it passes. We can petition all we want, but those in power want to stay in power, meaning those with the means to help them remain in power get their voices heard first and foremost in most cases. In a socialist system, the majority can decide: Hey, we don't like what you're doing, change that or we remove you. And the system will allow for the majority to remove the policymakers from office.
That's what I call power in the people!
That's easy. Anarchy literally is the system in which there is no power given to anyone at all. Anarchy is no government. Socialism is a form of government. Socialism is a form of governing a state. Anarchy is nothing.
You should respond to what I'm actually saying. Contradict something!
