Claro, eu estou falando de SOCIALISMO ESTATAL, e não de outras formas de socialismo, consideradas utópicas por Karl Marx. Muitas pessoas ignoram que Adolf Hitler também era socialista. "Nazista" é uma palavra pejorativa para socialista nacional. O socialismo na Alemanha foi o socialismo estatal. Claro que no socialismo estatal o governo tem uma grande influência sobre a economia, ou seja, ele controla a economia. Hitler, como socialista, declarou claramente o seu ódio à democracia. Comunistas, que apoiam o SOCIALISMO MARXISTA, geralmente tentam vender o socialismo como democrático. Mas com o governo controlando, não há democracia.
Arthur Conan Doyle had a degree in medicine, i.e., Conan Doyle was a doctor, a physician. He started writing because he couldn't manage to attract clients to his office. He wouldn't be able to earn a living by being a doctor, but as the writer creator of Sherlock Holmes he made a lot of money. Therefore, what socialists say against free trade and "capitalism" is false. We need capital to survive. It's not democratic to attack free trade. The opposite of socialism isn't capitalism. The opposite of socialism is DEMOCRACY.
Of course, I'm talking about STATE SOCIALISM, and not the other forms of socialism, considered UTOPIAN by Karl Marx. Many people ignore that Adolf Hitler was also a socialist. "Nazi" is a pejorative word for national socialist. The socialism in Germany was state socialism. Of course, in state socialism the government has a strong hold on the economy, that is, it controls the economy. Hitler, as a socialist, clearly declared his HATRED of democracy. Communists, who support MARXIST SOCIALISM, usually try to sell socialism as democratic. But with the government controlling there is no democracy.
