Socialism is alive and well in America.
Socialism, as well as limited communism in coop communities can and does work.
You might want to learn a little about what Socialism and Communism are.
Sure, there's some deeds done by nations that have ascribed to these ideals that are distasteful and intolerable.
At the same time, there's deed done by the United States of America that have been and are disgusting, distasteful and intolerable.
Japanese American Internment Camps?
Genocide and persecution of Native Americans?
Learn some things. No nation is virgin.
Please consider, every time you fly an American Flag, some of that flag covers and represents the KKK which are protected under the United States
Constitution even though they spread hatred and intolerance.
