What is this? So many countries in the world have both capitalist and socialist systems and cultures mixed together, how can you say it isn't
I live in France, which has a lot of socialism aspects, but it also has a capitalist economy. It works, from what I can tell. THere are some things
the state runs and operates, and every town has their co-ops, and we have mutuals (non profit) instead of insurance companies , universal healthcare,
And yet we still have private ownership as well. There is the "private sector" and the "public sector" and they coexist just fine.
My husband works for a big pharmaceutical lab, but it is not on the stock exchange; it is the employees that own all stock in it- it is also privately
owned by the man who started it. He still makes more than they, it is not "distributed equally".
Even Marxist theory of socialism is based on the principle of "from each according to his ability, to each according to his contribution". -
That is not equal re-distribution, as you said!
Are you getting socialism mixed up with communism, perhaps??
France is turning more and more socialist, but it is not a complete socialist system yet. It is getting close, and you will get your wish and see
first hand what happens.
When private property is abolished, which will be, and when your government, or the EU/one world government gets control of every infrastructure then
will France be a full socialist system.
What people like you don't understand is that it takes decades to brainwash people, as you are, to transform you from being capitalists into being
Worry not, you will get your wish soon enough. The UN and leftwingers in power around the world already have plans for global governance "derived
from corporate mandates"...
“The governments of Europe, the United States, and Japan are unlikely to negotiate a
social-democratic pattern of globalization – unless their hands are forced by a popular movement or a catastrophe, such as another Great Depression
or ecological disaster“
These governments would not accept a "social-democratic pattern of globalization" unless their hands are FORCED by a popular movement (Occupy and
Anthropogenic Global Warming movements), another Great Depression (the current GLOBAL economic crisis), or an ecological disaster (Global Warming
being blamed on humans)
Democratising Global Governance:
The Challenges of the World Social Forum
This paper sums up the debate that took place during the two round tables organized by UNESCO within the first World Social Forum in Porto Alegre
(25/30 January 2001). It starts with a discussion of national processes, by examining democracy and then governance at the national level. It
first states a case for a "joint" governance based on a combination of stakeholder theory, which is derived from
corporate governance, and of UNESCO's priorities in the field of governance. As an example, the paper investigates how
governance can deviate from democracy in the East Asian model. Subsequently, the global dimension of the debate on democracy and governance is
examined, first by identification of the characteristics and agents of democracy in the global setting, and then by allusion to the
difficulties of transposing governance to the global level.
The above paper is from 1991 from the UN (UNESCO is a branch of the UN in case you didn't know). It, and the meetings these globalists have been
having call for a GLOBAL SOCIALIST/FASCIST GOVERNMENT derived from CORPORATE GOVERNANCE...
That is a socialist/fascist one World Government, and people like you will get your wish soon enough and see the truth...
Millions of people like me were born and experienced the truth of socialism and communism, and people like you have ignored our warnings because you
have been brainwashed into thinking "socialism is great and we need it"...
Instead of listening to the voice of reason and experience most people who accept socialism/communism have decided to deride those of us who know the
truth from experience, we are even labeled "CIA agents", paid spooks etc, and are given other labels because you don't want to listen to the truth.
As an example, a Cuban friend of mine who is a blogger and has been trying to show the truth about Cuba arrived in Washington about two weeks ago and
was received by leftwingers with ads claiming she is lying, and protesting for her right to tell the truth about Cuba and the socialist/communist
system so many WESTERNERS believe "is heaven when in fact is hell"... Similarly other leftwingers/socialists/communists around the world have made
protests against her visit to the U.S. because of their ignorance.
But like I said, worry not, you will get your wish soon, and suffer for it.
