Its all a mess because the way we live as a species is all wrong and we’ve lost sight of the fact that we’re meant to be wild animals, not the soft jelly rolls we’ve become. Humanity is pretty fucking pathetic in a lot of ways, honestly. But yeah, anyway, starting to run long here, but I’d just say chasing wealth is living life ALL wrong in my opinion, detrimental to yourself and others. I don’t agree with collectivism either, but it at least makes more sense to me in that you’ve committed to something for a greater good. I just don’t support any situation where weak genetics are surviving, not in like a tough guy way to be like “rahhhh, I’m strong and you’re weak!”, I’d probably die in my own system im calling for. I’m just saying that we probably have like 80-90% more humans than we need, and most of them are genetically weak, and that’s sign #1 that we’re approaching this all wrong as a species. I don’t say this to be a dick, I just believe this is what nature calls for and we’re unnaturally circumventing all of it in the name of comfort, and that’s not right.
I've heard liberal Youtubers claim the reason Venezuela socialism has failed because the USA got involved to make sure it failed.
Fine... if Venezuela is a failed state because of US interference, then live in Mexico, China, Russia. Hell, try living in N. Korea and see how well socialism is working. On a smaller scale, go live in CA, where most of their state Gov't is operating in a socialist manner. You have a one-party state, run by THEIR ideas. They've effectively done everything to prevent Republicans from having any influence there. Taxes are through the roof, homelessness is off the scale. The schools are overcrowded, regulations on everything (straws, drinks, eating in restaurants, what you can say, etc...). People are leaving that state BECAUSE of the socialism. Obviously, it's working well there... not!

From what I understand, one component of Socialism is the distribution of wealth. This is where they heavily tax the wealthy to support social programs for the not so wealthy.
@slatyb Seattle/Portland white people are the worst.
Yes, it's a form of compulsory insurance. I'm highly paid. Why? Because I have worked extremely hard to reach this positon? No, because I'm fortunate to be able to do work that is in high demand and short supply. I would be happy to pay more taxes to provide benefits for all the people who are not so lucky. It's weird, most of the people who are against higher taxes on, say, people making over $400K/year don't know anyone who makes over $400K/year.
Those Scandinavian countries are capitalist market economies, not socialist.
@tartaarsaus Exactly. That how a Social Democratic country works.
@slatybe democratic socialism and capitalistic sounds like complete opposite I think you are mistaken. Scandinavian countries only look socialistic to us probably because they are so small in comparison to the U. S. So any social programs of any sort seem much more magnified to our eyes because of the small size of the society I guess.
