Interesting. Who knew that the realization of a socialist paradise is just a return to the Stone Age where Neanderthals run around stoning animals to death.

Bernie Bros are America’s intellectual Neanderthals

Communism and socialism are twin sisters. Neither are good for the people! The ruling dictators are the only ones it's good for.

The biggest thing I see that's not free market is the tariffs they charge to other countries. China is more free market when it comes to patent/copyright , and they have less restrictive regulations such as worker safety and pollution.
I find this post hilarious, because I have a BS in Economics.

Something like the Wild West was more democratic because it was less civil - now staying healthy and keeping what you had ...

I guess I've come to realize a couple of things in 70+ years. Socialism and Communism are just separated by degrees of totalitarianism; and like in any other totalitarian government (Nazi or other ism), they only survive through a strong central government. The outcome is always the same; those at the top plunder and live in style, and by far most of the rest would have had better days in feudal times regardless of the ism.

The other is that business has a symbiotic relationship with everyone else - something like a parasite and host. Henry Ford had the concept; if his employees had money he could sell to them. Too many companies haven't figured out that money spread thinly in foreign (and few domestic) worker's hands doesn't benefit anybody - it's a matter of starving the host until it doesn't provide nourishment (sales). You have to appreciate the nuclear concept of critical mass to understand that something works only when there is a sufficient base. It is just dragged out by ignoring facts through funny money - government debt and market Ponzi schemes.

Venezuela would be in the final four of the world championship tournament in that regard.

Here's my final six (continents available, so somebody gets a bye):

South America - Venezuela
Europe - Tough choice actually, but I think I have to go with Moldova because it is landlocked.
Middle East - Yemen
Africa - Lay's Potato Chips. Can't eat (pick) just one.
North America - Jamaica
Asia - Pick 'em, but pretty much any place with a "stan" ending.
