    1. It’s more like socialism FAILs so good.

      To be realistic: North Korea is one of history’s severest socialism FAILs. The effort went so poorly that the place reverted into a feudalist state with privileged overlords and dire poor peon peasants. Karl Marx would shoot himself in the head if he saw this catastrophe in action.

    2. Public transportation, police, fire departments, and state parks are 100% socialist, mind you. Picking the craziest totalitarian nation on Earth as your only example of socialism is extreme – and I’d say misleading.

      1. “Public transportation, police, fire departments, and state parks are 100% socialist, mind you.”

        However, a HUGE difference exists between the two examples.

        In socialist societies the government takes from the producers (business), as BOT clearly pointed out. The BIG difference is to add taxpayers to the fleecing list in a free society. Some may not pay income tax, but certainly at the pump and stores, etc. The very same workers socialism was designed to relieve.

        Socialism: Great idealism, great reality failure. Only a theoretical success in a liberal arts classroom and some smoky minds.

Wikipedia says their people have a high life expectancies and literacy rates and their number one industry is tourism. I’m sure even you have heard how great Cuba’s healthcare system is, especially compared to ours in America. And Cuban sandwiches are delicious. They do have a lot of poor people and crappy bathrooms, so it’s far from paradise, but no place is perfect.

    1. No doubt there will be some further peaks on the ride, but the valleys will be ever deeper. I doubt they’ve cut the tracks at the end of the ride. But it does make for a nicely imagined terminal ending of this clown show. :mrgreen:
