Did you know that employee owned companies are practicing socialism? Anything the government does, building parks, roads, defense spending, etc is technically supposed to be socialism. Ie, the government isn’t there to make a profit. We the people elect representatives to decide where our extra money goes. Socialism is pooling profits and redistributing them as the people see fit vs as the boss sees fit.
Socialism put a man in the moon.
Ideal Communism = Government runs everything
Ideal Capitalism = Everyone give profits to companies after being paid
Ideal Socialism = Everyone gets an even share of all profits after being paid
USA is totally a mix of socialism and capitalism. Communist we are not.
I think there are many shades in between where we are, where we’ve been, and where we should go.
