@reddiaperbaby Socialism is a Failure and doesn't work. Look at what's happening in Venezuela

pol 

@Kagnenoi @reddiaperbaby You wait to see what ll happen in the US and in Brazil!
Corona is not affecting and will not affect Venezuela not even a fraction of that in the above mentioned countries!

pol 

@Kagnenoi There are many kinds of socialism. Venezuela's kind is just one kind.

@reddiaperbaby Socialism doesn't work and if you think Socialism works, then explain China, Vietnam, Laos and Cuba

@Kagnenoi A lot of shares of publicly traded corporations are owned by index funds. What would happen if governments bought shares of index funds, or ran their own index funds? The only difference between that and what we have now is that the dividends would be distributed equally.

This would be a form of socialism. It would be public ownership of the means of production. Just one example of a form of socialism that hasn't been tried yet.
