    Short answer? No. Socialism is used by masterminds to get brought into power so they can start implementing socialist policies, when those socialist policies, they never were designed to do so. Then mastermind begins implementing measures that give him and his cronies more power and thus socialism becomes communism if the mastermind gives all means of production to "the people(aka the state)" or it becomes fascism if the mastermind gives the means of production to a few large corporations under the guise of nationalism.

    Socialism is a way to power, it's a way to pull the wool over the eyes of the ignorant, most of all it's a wolf in sheeps clothing by claiming to be about compassion.

    You have a very parochial viewpoint sometimes. These communists in South America are not American Starbucks in Berkeley communists. They are people who want to rob and kill people who justify it by claiming that those in possession of profitable farms or a decent standard of living somehow stole it from the "landless peasants". It is arrogant in light of our somewhat open border to see these people as simply a bunch of banana republic crazies. Many of the illegal immigrants in the US are "refugee" communists who fled their own country after failing to over throw the government, after failing to steal the land and possessions of others under "social justice" and "land reform". What better place for thieves and criminals to hide but inside the wall of Catholic castles?

    So, do you believe this nun was actually just some aggressive woman trying to overthrow her government or get control over it? Perhaps she should have consulted Hilary? lol.

    Most of the illegal immigrants are simply people who either didn't have freedom where they were at or had no economical opportunities or both. They're often very hard working and in my opinion is your best ally in favor of capitalism.
