      Hi michael haaheim
       
      Your points are well taken, but I still hold that the problem is
      usually Big Govt (by any philosophy) , with central command/control.
       
      On the other hand, a growing economy, whatever you want to call it,  is one that
      will tend to maximize:
       
      (dollars in the private sector)/dollars in the govt sector +debt).

      Once again, you are confusing socialism with communism; and, worse, you are confusing communism (which has never exsted at national level, anywhere, xcept in name only) with authortarianism.
      You are absolutely correct about authoritarian regimes. BUT THESE ARE NOT SOCIALIST.
      There is no workers' paradise. However, I am currently a socialist worker (in France), and I am a hell of a lot better off than I was in the US. Sure, I pay 35% or more in taxes, but I also get nearly free healthcare. Not to mention higher quality medical care.

      Wake up, people ! Socialism and fascism (all big govt with centralized control)\
      and command-- dictatorships--have brought mankind nothing but war,
      havoc, poverty and enslavement. What socialist worker was ever freed from
      his chains ? Where is the workers' paradise ? The ruins of
      Berlin ? The desolated condition of Russia ? Cuba ? Venezuela ?
       
      It's no suprise that socialism - in its hideous the Nazi form - once
      destroyed europe, as it continues to do so today. Germany will
      soon become the 4th Reich. Socialist neo-nazii parties are forming
      in Greece. Socialism has also destroyed Russia, in its communist form.
      Socialism has been the scourge of mankind through
      the useful idiots that support it here as elsewhere.
       
      Promises, promises, but no payoff...
       
      Likewise, it's no surprise that it was the capitalists that rebuilt Japan.
      And europe as well. In fact every civilization has
      been built by trade and hard work. Those that go socialist, as
      europe, the UK and Japan have, destroy themselves from
      cannabalizing themselves inward -- as they must-- instead of building
      their civilizations outward through trade and common sense.
       
      Ibn fact it is apparent that rclough, rclough@...

      Roosevelt made sure that in the cut up of Europe, that the US would have a new Europe which needed rebuilding, and which needed manufactured goods.  As Europe was devastated, the only country able to supply these needed components of infrastructure was the US.  Compare New York with London in 1946.  New York's stores are full of goods, London is still a pile of rubble.  Japan was built from the ground up by American investors.
