Socialism can be a fine way of government, if its ideals are followed. Democracy can be a fine way of government, if its ideals are followed. I suppose a benevolent dictatorship could be, too. The problem is the greed that seems to get in the way once any particular form of government is established.
I believe in earning your keep, and keeping what you earn. Socialism doesn't support private ownership which in the end makes working hard pointless. Socialism is a system of working to support everyone which leaves much room for abuse. You will have people taking advantage of the system, and it will breed laziness at best. The best system of government is one that supports freedom, and that includes the freedom to make a living the best way that any one person sees fit. Socialism is not a good choice as it takes this freedom away, and it will do more harm than good.
