    Top ten dumbest things I've heard. How's Saudi Arabia doing? Dubai is rich for what reason? What is America doing in the middle east?

    You do realize that Venezuela production droped due to lack of investment and renovation right?

    Oil price is ciclic, had they invested on the up they would be able to keep healthy. They did the opposite killed private business, spent money to stay in power and fucked oil production.

    I know you are trolling but come on do better

    For the new-comers to the thread: The "low oil price destroyed the Venezuelan economy, not socialism!" apologists have already been thoroughly destroyed on page 3-4.

    The sad part is he wasn't actually trolling. Go back to page 3 to see @Rod1 taking him to school.

    This is why you never say stupid shit in Arkain2K's megathreads, especially on Page 1. It will come back to haunt you for years to come.

    Man this isn't at all how my tweed jacket wearing community college paralegal studies professor told me socialism would work out. That guy is really smart too. He wears glasses and keeps a pen in his ear. Dumb barbaric yokels must have sabotaged it yet again. I suspect racism.

    This is not socialism - they never gave the people the means of production. The state took it all more akin to communism.

    This definition is obsolete via being too broad. The people effectively own the means of production in modern, caste-mobile capitalism.

    Early socialist writers were extremely myopic. They lived during the transition from monarchy to merchant-rule and assumed — based on industrialists drawing labor from the peasantry — that capitalism was permanently conjoined to the caste system and the throne had simply changed hands. We now know that capitalist wealth is the most fickle type, that it's rare for an individual to spend life within one income bracket or "collar-type" much less an entire family or village.

    Modern "true socialism" is a ponzi scheme. There is no system of checks/balances to prevent "the people" aka collectives from evolving into state dictatorships therefore they inevitably do, always, and this should be considered a defining feature of socialism.
