I think I did state that my source was the DSA’s home page, here is the link.
More specifically, here is the page.
Why go to a third party opinion?
"Socialism means equality in the society and democratic socialism means equality in a democratic state.”
Well, in the first place we are not a democracy, we are a republic, so wouldn’t the correct term be republic socialism?
“Socialism can be defined as a system of collective ownership and management of the means of production and the distribution of goods. Socialism also views that in a capitalist state, the wealth and power is concentrated among a small section of the society. Socialism can also be stated to be a society where all people work as equals in cooperation for the common good of all.”
Sum it up, and the goal of socialism is simple wealth re-distribution, no matter how you cut it or spin it.
We tried it once and it did not work.
Other countries have tried it, and it still does not work.
Taking the management out of the hands of the owners does nothing more than stifle innovation.
Why should I come up with a better mousetrap, invest my time and money, only to relinquish my management to the worker bees who have risked nothing?
As for your apology, accepted.
