Here is my challenge to communists and socialists. I want you to name one example of a large scale some what moder socialist society that has actually improved the lot of the working man.

There will be a hefty reward if someone can give an example.
As a general rule, you'll find that, when a conservative is talking about policy, history, economics, or something serious, liberals are nowhere to be found. But, as soon as a conservative mentions Obama's birthplace or personal life, liberals are everywhere, only to dissappear again when evidence enters the discussion.

I am a progressive not a socialist, but a good example is Scandanavia.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Shall I be the one to burst the bubble of lack of precedence doesn't make an argument correct? But the best examples are Scandinavia and France. And Spain, actually.

I wouldn't really call Scandinavia socialist.
