Default Socialism

Is socialism the solution to our problems?

Note: Communism is a division of Socialism.

Really depends on how it's implemented.

Is socialism the solution to 3rd world nations that have adopted capitalism?

omL it's so obvious that you haev absolutely no.freaking.idea. of what yuo're talking about.
Democracy and socialism can mix perfectly, ever heard of the Scandinavian Model? Ever heard of scandinavia for that matter .
I'm a big fan of the basic idea of socialsm - equality for all, and no poor people :D. But obviously, the way it was implemented in the SU didn't work out, and I'm no fan of supression, so that's a big no.

Would it work in African countries? No, I don't think so...It would take a complete change of leadership, removal of the elite, support from western companies/goverment who are willing to "give up" their property/money/projects ni the countries. Most of the exploitable resources (e.g. oil in Niger) make profits for those Western companies.

I could elaborate more but I'm on a ****** computer with a ****** keyboard , so it'll have to wait.

Capitalism as applied in the US - omL I don't believe in that either. A mixture of socialism and capitalism would probably be the best (it always turns out like that :P).

Do you know what Socialism's principle's are and what it is all about to criticize it like that? I know that people think socialism is evil because of the way the Soviets approached it. In reality it isn't like that at all. People didn't have to die. They just had crazy people in the USSR. An ex-friend of mine once said "Socialism is economically wrong but morally right, and Capitalism is economically right but morally wrong." (BTW, He likes socialism more that capitalism)

And democracy is not socialism's rival, it is capitalism. I get annoyed when people think everything is about America and its supposed democracy (When it seems that it is actually a Republic). Get your facts straight!

I am not a socialist (as my avatar shows). IMO, Capitalism seems to make countries progress even if there is an upper class and lower class. In a socialist country, one party has one control, so...
