Default Socialism - where do you stand?

I reckon this is the correct place for a thread like this. So, socialism: what's your view on it? Are you for it? Against it? Neutral? Why?

I've been involved with a socialist youth party for a while now, but I'm still very much a newcomer to politics in general, so by creating this thread I hope to spark some general discussion and gain some knowledge.

Ey, mods, can you please add a poll? I messed up whilst trying to do it myself. Question: "do you like socialism" or something of the like.

I want to see health care and oil 100% socialized in the USA. We socialized our mail system. We should socialize those other two.

It's your thread. Give me a little more to work with. Can add a varying degree of options if you would like?

Aight, something like this (multi-choice):

Do you like socialism?

  • Yes (please explain)
  • No (please explain)
  • I'm confused (ask your questions in a reply)

I like elements of socialism and I like elements of capitalism. Both systems can be exploited and corrupted. With socialism, it's been fast, hard and apparent. The competitive nature of capitalism
has made totalitarian pursuits nearly impossible in the US, but policy by policy we have gradually become militarized police state, momey has saturated politics, and cronyism has become the norm.

Maybe all systems are ****ed and the key is to keep changing systems before its weaknesses are exploited.

Whatever keeps my TV going and my computer playing porn is alright with me. The human race is perfectly willing to live under **** systems so long as they're kept happy and fed, so as long as our current, corrupt system can do that, I'm content.
