I'm not saying Socialism is the best system, There are many arguments that point out the opposite, It has a very patchy history, Great gains and terrible loses. But people seem so divided and the society has become so unequal, And no one will compromise on even simple things, Which we should, I am afraid like many other societies we are about to reap a whirl wind

I do not believe that socialism will take hold anywhere else in the next 10 years or anytime after that. Just because we are a divided world does not mean that Socialism will take over. The history of the system is very terrible. Not only that but other economic systems prove to be far more successful. People will not fail to see these points and will not let socialism take hold.

Firstly, The record of Socialsim is mixed, And understandably so, It is a new idea and just being tried as people make mistakes they learn, Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting diffeent results, So we try some thing new t attain the same goals, We learn Socialism become more practical as in China
Secondly the result of growing inequality and millenial socialsim well be socialism, It isnt just that we are divided but WHY we are divided


Norway is socialist and does just fine

It may be mixed with some few, Few examples of it going right but it's past is full of the death of innocent people and the destruction of nations. China is not a socialist country, It is a mixed nation, Leaning toward more capitalistic economic views and beliefs. This is the same thing as Norway. As of right now through the use of studies and surveys by different companies show that most Millennials do not support socialism and fully support capitalism. This divide that you say exist is not an issue there are not enough people that support it to create any type of change of mindset on anyone.

You may willingly go into socialism, But you always have shed blood to get out of it.

"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. . "

although that's true, There are different factors to take in. You can't call someone insane because they take the SAT two times.

The definition really means like. If you drop a ball and a tv monitor, Both weighing the same, That one will eventually beat the other.
