"Social responsibility" is only possible when people have more than what they need, and this is only possible under a capitalist/free market nation.

You can't, and most people wouldn't, give milk that your child needs for other children. You can only give to others when the needs of your family are met and exceeded.

Are there SOME people that share even under dire circumtances? Sure, but even those people don't give the food that their children, or themselves need to survive to another family.

Under socialism/communism, the "state/government", which in communism is called "the workers party", mandates and rations everything to the most basic needs to the point of starving most people living under such socialist/communist dictatorships.

Socialism and communism will always lead to dictatorship. There is no way out of that because once you give ALL power to the state, and take away individual freedom "for the good of all", you are in fact making sure that the people have no real power, and only a small group of people "who claim to be workers and represent workers" have all the power.

The closest that the UK has been to socialism was the Atlee Government of 1945-1951. That government created the NHS, which the vast majority of we Brits regard with pride.

Germany at first flourished under the socialist mandates of HItler, does that mean that socialism/fascism is good?...

Look at what has been happening in your nation since then, and the big government that has come out...

Big government = socialism/fascism/communism.

ElectricUniverse,


Just because somebody posts something on the internet, doesn't mean it's true or accurate. Case in point.


And history by EXPERIENCE has shown that socialism/communism/fascism are anti-human systems... Case in point...

Just because some socialists claim "it is great for the people" when socialist policies call for taking away individual rights "for the greater good" and this ALWAYS leads to dictatorships should tell you a great deal about the truth behind socialism/communism...

Obviously you have no idea what is happening in Africa...

Are you claiming that the warlords of Africa are "capitalists"?...


Are you claiming that the Muslim radicals in parts of Africa, who have been murdering people left and right are "capitalists"?...

Please at least learn a bit about the topic you are trying to participate in before you make false claims.

That is exactly what they are. Just because it doesn't fit your personal definition doesn't mean that it doesn't fit the generally accepted definition.

Of course you will probably just ignore that fact.

Erm, you are aware that Hitler was a Fascist who arrested the leaders of the Social Democrats (socialists) and the Communists aren't you?
