52. Not one single example? I will give you one.
Socialism worked just fine in USSR for over 70 years, turning a backwards illiterate
desperately poor peasant country into the second most powerful military-industrial
empire in the world. That happened also in the face of relentlessly aggressive
hostility from the rest of the world, and despite USSR having to fight several
costly wars, most devastating of which (WWII) left the country in complete ruin
and 25 million less in population. And, please, don't give me that crap, about how
terrible a totalitarian dictatorship USSR was. I was born and spent 25 years of my life
there, and it was nothing of the sort. It was a dynamic vibrant society full of happy, free
and creative people - it would not have been able to compete with the US for so long
otherwise. All the propaganda lies drilled into the brains of the gullible western
mass media consumers is just a reflection of how afraid the capitalist masters are
of people finding out that a human society can exist, thrive and progress without
a profit motive.
