Pure socialism or communism is probably not obtainable. Just like pure capitalism is not really possible. Which is why we never define these things so
You also keep failing to address the fact that your definition of socialism or communism is when a country crosses the line to authoritarianism.
So, do tell me of a country which has fully embraced some form of socialism/fascism, or communism and it isn't authoritarian...
For crying out loud, just look at how western nations are turning up which have slowly, but surely, embraced parts of the socialist dogma... Is it
really turning up better or worse the more socialist countries become?...
And of course "the lines have become blurred", when for example and again, the United States under progressive Democrats implemented the Federal
Reserve Act/Bank, the IRS as it exists now, and other legislation to "regulate the markets, and businesses" since 1913.
Did it help that Republicans, and even when some leaders from other nations who hadn't been bought by the international bankers and understood what
was happening, and tried to warn Americans that the Feds were a group of international bankers led by rich families trying to take over the U.S. did
it help? Not one bit. Most Americans even back then didn't want to believe that was possible.
It has been talked about quite a bit about in these forums that groups of international bankers, and their rich families had been trying to infiltrate
and destroy the Republic of the U.S. since it's concept, and it has been working quite well.
You see, way before 1913, and actually still for a while after 1913, the "party that was helping the people" the most was the Republican party.
Although yes, it is true that even back then there were more Democrats as well who weren't so..."progressive" as the word is used now.
Anyway, which was the party that was created because many Americans back then believed that the Rights enumerated within the Bill of Rights of the
United States Constitution should also be rights for ALL people and not just whites?
Heck, why was it that the founding Fathers of what was to become the United States, even when many had different ideas of how the government of the
people should work, they still agreed that a Republican form of government was the one with the best interest for the people.
It is written in Article 4 section 4 that, and I quote.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of
Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature
cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
How come such a group of diverse minds come to the agreement that a Republican Government was the one that served best the people? Also, it is very
important to know that those same people which believed in a "We the People" kind of country wrote in that same U.S. Constitution that there should be
an "electoral college" and the election of a U.S. President and vice-President shouldn't be left just to the decision of the people. Why would they
do that if they believed in a "We the People" kind of country?
The Electoral College is a controversial mechanism of presidential elections that was created by the framers of the U.S. Constitution as a
compromise for the presidential election process. At the time, some politicians believed a purely popular election was too reckless, while
others objected to giving Congress the power to select the president. The compromise was to set up an Electoral College system that allowed
voters to vote for electors, who would then cast their votes for candidates, a system described in Article II, section 1 of the Constitution.
Just because a majority of people agree on something it doesn't mean they are right, or that their decision would be right to the minority, or
minorities. Just like giving all, or most power to one branch of government is also a bad idea.
To make it short, have the lines become blurred? of course it has, more than ever before, because the power over what would become for many decades
since at least 1913 one of the most powerful nations was given to the rich elites and bankers. It all has come downhill not only in the U.S. but
around the world since then, and more and more but surely, more and more people in power over the U.S. and other nations have been bought off.
Since then, 1913, more and more politicians, and other people in power have been corrupted to the bone by these groups of international rich families
and bankers to whom were given power over the United States economy, and over all Americans, and slowly but surely they have also taken over almost
completely other nations.
