    "Socialism exists to crush societies under its boot in tiny but ever-accelerating increments.", " Socialism is evil.", "The world is actually brimming with evil communists who do want to subjugate capitalist nations."

    Come the fuck off it. It's 2010, not 1950. You may consider socialism bad for the economy. You may consider it a style of government you do not wish to live under. And you may criticise specific socialist governments. That does not mean socialism is evil.

    Similar to the differences between yellow and banana.

    Might I add that USA's strongest economical periods are those where syndicates are present and very active and that it's worst economical periods are those where blunt capitalism is present? Might I add that many successful countries such as Sweden or Norway who adopt a social-democracy (center-left movement) usually have an higher HDI than blunt capitalist countries?
