Socialism is a symptom omnipresent in any system that does not deploy relativity of freedom (real freedom). Including our system in the U.S., most people refer to as capitalistic, with merely oligarchically (private sector) controlled socialism rather than government (public sector) managed by other systems.
Socialism is group-think and restricts the ability to find outliers responsible for evolving upstream. And evolution without upstream innovation yields never-ending spiraling of downstream sub-priming.
We know we cannot evolve to the best of our ability without frequently challenging the religions of our past, which requires the invention of a new and better normalization of the past. Initiated by those with the ability to reinvent our world anew and stimulated by the freedom of a system – the antithesis of the properties of socialism – that allows for the dissidence of the system we currently abide to.
The pursuit of freedom forming our nation of immigrants, to begin with.
