8. When was the last time you saw a socialist-run corporation?
Edited on Fri May-13-05 01:13 PM by Dover

It is the corporate model of capitalism that shapes this country's ideological, economic and soon its governmental bodies. Call it the capitalist pyramid (with fascist leanings when unregulated).
And there is no room for socialism (classlessness) in the capitalist corporate model structure. They are not democratic either. They require hierarchy, and there is no real mechanism for input at the decision-making level by "the people".

In modern socialist theory, it is in the pursuit of the goal of creating a classless society that has a responsible people and a sympathetic government that would form the backbone of an ideal welfare state.

Truth be told, socialism IS, in a manner of speaking, part of the corporate model. It works in reverse in this country. The corporations are the recipients of welfare......paid for by the People.
