Conscious Capitalism (2016)
Franco 1 points 11 days ago*.

The examples u provide are not socialist nations. They are a mix of socialism with capitalism. Pensions, supplemented healthcare, worker’s aid/compensation are all examples of socialism. Making a living, earning a wage, sale of goods and services is how capital is generated to pay for those socialist ideals thru taxation: both personal and goods and services tax. Sadly in every example of socialism the world over, egregious despots often wield the tyrannical reign of power for their narcissistic, ubiquitous intentions. What you find is the banter of academia more often heralding the virtues of socialism, and Not the patrons of private/corporate economies. Most of these soothsayers know little of the economic engine of capitalism. A teacher, a police officer, or any civil servant, is little more than a glorified welfare recipient. They add zero material wealth to the GDP of a nation. And are actually a drain on a capital system. Yes they serve their purpose under a capitalistic structure. Any growth or value(GDP) of a nation can be ascertained thru the provision of a good or service that is sold for profit and then taxed. There is no other way. The socialist wet dream of some euphoric utopian world is little more than an apocalyptic nightmare. Quit listening to no-nothing academics. The reality is those on the top never relinquish power or wealth in a socialist world. You are little more than a plebeian shoveling horse dung from the stables. In a capitalist/social mix u have an opportunity for all boats to rise, not just those on top who wield the power. Perfect?..No far from it. But man will always be immoral, selfish,envious and greedy..until he relinquishes his sin, dies to self, and chooses another way. Otherwise lying, cheating, immorality remain his only hope. Six thousand years of human history have not shown me anything to the contrary.Socialism or the New World order/Great Reset will only accomplish what I have described..and for most, the abyss awaits.IMO

I kinda thought my point about the restrictive socialism of the U S of A would have made it clear that I was not claiming “pure socialism” in any case. I was responding to your “pure” denunciation of socialism… while pointing to a country (the US of A) that is doing it wrong. Sorry you missed that.

Hmmm…. “Socialism has been tried 42 times in the last 100 years and 42 failures…” Somebody needs to tell Sweden, Norway, heck - most of Europe heck, even the grand ol’ U S of A has socialism for (for farmers, corporations, and the rich)- that their countries are all failures.

The links on this show are all for Tuesday 10/20 - not 10/21. I’ve reported this via the ‘report link’ button yesterday - and again today. It is still up. This kind of post usually attracts management’s attention, if only to get a reply akin to ‘don’t post this stuff here, use the (useless) ‘report link”. But hey - maybe they’ll notice…

After a devastating battle against an army of drones leaves Sergeant Barbara Slade paralyzed, her only chance for survival is to be placed inside an artificial, android body. However, once inside a cybernetic unit, Slade’s identity is mistaken, leading her to a cell of antigovernment activists and to a mind-bending plan that threatens to destroy everything she has made sacrifices to protect.
