Since the Socialist/Communist model has failed everywhere it was tried, why do liberals think they can "Finally" make it work in the USA?

  • Best Answer

    Success and failure are functions of what your goal is.

    "Liberals" want to turn the USA into another third-world shithole. And I'm not being hyperbolic here. That is what they actually want.  From their perspective, advocating socialism will work just fine.

  • They don't.  For starters, socialism and communism are two different things.  In fact, communism claimed to be what socialism only wanted to be.  "Liberals" are trying for something very different from either, but you wouldn't understand it.

  • I listened to the debate in Iowa, I heard NONE OF THEM pushing that model....now if you want to put Warren/Sanders in the socialist model, that's fair game, but none of the other candidates were even talking about it.

  • First off socialism and communism are complete opposites. Second, socialism has been PROVEN to work. Norway, Netherlands, canada, Japan, Netherlands, france, Germany, Denmark, Finland, etc are all examples of proof. OH, and the US. Socialism saved the US from the great depression

  • Most liberals do not support socialism/communism as the economic model for the entire economy.  But with you being profoundly stupid you are incapable of understanding that.

  • you're just stacking strawmen here.

    Most "liberals" do not advocate socialism, let alone communism. Even Bernie Sanders doesn't.

    Communism ("work according to ability, receive according to need") has never been tried on a scale that exceeds a few thousand people.

    a few types of Socialism have been tried (in a top-down fashion),  several other types have not, or only on a small scale (like co-ops)
