the only way that a socialist state would work was if the rest of the surrounding countries also turned socialist. basically the world would have to turn socialist, but that would never happen and plus humans are greedy, just down-right plain greedy. we like stuff.

Socialism is simply an extention of Communism, which is loathsome in my book as it removes far more rights than most other forms of government. The main one is property rights.
