Socialism is the best way for the rich and powerful to go on exploiting and controlling the poor and the middle class. It prevents you frm getting where tehy are, whcih is why the rich make the best socialists.
Good point. Even here in the (sort of) capitalist US, high taxes (and particularly "progressive" income taxes) are designed to prevent hard working middle class people from getting rich. If they got rich, they would have the time (and the experience) to re-shape our political landscape in ways that the current "elite" wouldn't like.
Are you saying the rich are all socialists? Seems counter-intuitive.
