Well, North Korea is not democratic, even though they claim to be. Socialism has a specific definition, and it refers specifically to workers themselves owning or controlling the means of production. So if that’s not happening, no matter what they call themselves, they are not socialist. So, no, Germany was not socialist, Russia is not socialist, China is not socialist, and sanders is not socialist. Nor is aoc.
Ah ... yes, the old "it's not true socialism because they aren't doing it right" defense. So we can ignore the failure of this or that socialist state or system.

Citation needed. 95% of scientists? Before you post an article, don’t bother, do your due diligence and research the “95% of scientists” quotation. Unless you have a list of all climate scientists and who agrees with what?

As for China, they have grown and industrialized faster in the last 20 years than any other nation in history, with the middle class exploding faster than any other middle class growth recorded as well.
Pray tell, what was the economic system China adopted that allowed that explosion of their economy and the growth of the Middle Class to happen?
I'll wait for your answer.

The interesting thing that comes up in these type of discussions is always the distinction between what "right" and "left" actually mean and whether the Republicans equal "right" and Democrats equal "left."
Of course what we see is that one party cries about the other one when they are in power but then the same thing when control changes.
I am amazed that people claim to support civil rights and the Constitution in one breath and then express partisan nonsense in the next.
