If the government owns everything is it really a socialist government???

on Lawrence O'Donald tonight, he was talking about the US owing 2 million dollars to North Korea for Otto Warmbier's "medical bills". North Korea does not have medical bills, the government OWNS EVERYTHING. So is North Korea a Socialist Country??? Yikes.

5. The North Koreans tortured him to cause his medical problems.

The charge is not justified and that is why the US did not pay the bill.

2. It is a dictatorship owned government.

That's what t-Rump likes about it. Kim can do or say what he wants.

3. The classic definition of socialism, in very general terms,

is a system in which the government or cooperatives of citizens own and control the means of production and distribution, and there might or might not be centralized economic planning. There are a lot of variations on this model, some less benign than others. North Korea describes itself as socialist, but it's probably more accurate to describe it as a Stalinist totalitarian dictatorship.
