  • It depends on the form of socialism, but I would say in general yes. I would also say most forms of socialism is better in actuality too.

  • On paper and in implementation.

  • it is good on paper but as soon as you try to use it in real life it don't work

  • While it sounds good on paper, when you actually implement it the economy pretty much dies.

  • It is better if youre working for the government, if not, socialism is evil. However, it can be good if you combine it with the good aspects of Capitalism

  • no, it really would work. being poor, i'm all for making the economic state of a society as equal as possible. i even think communism works. it's valid as a theory. we're only opposed to it because of the violence of its leaders.

  • No, taking money from those who work harder for it is a terrible system on paper. If you say that socialism/communism is a good idea that only fails in practice, you failed yourself.

  • It is morally inconcievable to steal labor from people in order to help subsidize poor people's poor decisions

In a communist society, wealth and poverty do not exist. Therefore, we would not be subsidizing poor people's poor decisions, we would be evening the economic scales so that social class is no longer a commonly used term.

So instead of some people being poor we make everyone poor? And what is the motivation to try hard and be successful?
