Does Socialism Work? A classroom experiment. (brilliant.)


    1. Amazing super proud of such clear intelligence…. Please keep spreading the word. I am 40 years old and seeing young people who have brains, heart and decernment give me hope and restore my faith.
      God Bless you Samantha! I’m sending everyone your hyper link.

    2. The premise of the post is “Socialism does not work”.
      During the 2008 financial meltdown when the USA was on the brink of a collapse, “Capitalism Failed Miserably”, and Socialism (public tax money) came to the rescue.
      We did not see any influx of private capital into the markets, on the contrary people were tripping over each other to get out of the stock market. While companies “Too Big to Fail” were saved, millions of people lost their houses, their jobs and saw their retirement funds vanish in front of their eyes. No bail outs for the little people, even though their money was used to bail out the corporations and pay big bonuses to their heads.
      And that was not a one shot deal. Remember the Junk Bonds scandal of the 90’s, and the S&L scandal of the 80’s?. History repeats itself about every 10 years to keep the little people down.
      I don’t have a problem with Capitalism, I have a problem with the 1% rigging the system, and fight with all their political power to keep the 99% out of the wealth that they enjoy.
      The sad thing is that many of the 99ers are so indoctrinated, that think they are part of the 1%.
