1. There is no socialist country that exports anything (name one, oh, ok, Vodka from Russia. Next?)
Russia is a socialist country?
You do know the red flags all came down over a decade ago right?
Cuba , you know , as in Cuban . what word seems to logically follow when speaking about cuban *something* , something world famous...
2 ...all the good that Mrs. Thatcher....
This would be the disasterous privitasation which deprived the gov of revenue or the war in the falklands that Borges described as "the fight between two bald men over a comb"?
3. ??????? England , with its private enterprise , private transport, public-private-partnership healthcare and house of lords is , in your mind, a socialist state.
Do you honestly believe that?
Depending on the legislation it may indeed be "strangling red tape" or nessissary law,
When capitalists talk of the evils of regulation , I like to remind them all that there was a time of lax regulation less than a hundred years ago and the social deprivation it created genuinly threatened their existance , by pissing on the working classes, paying wages high enough to just stave off starvation and paying no heed to the health and safety of their workers they layed the foundations for the emergence of political radicals of the left.
Ironically the "communist" countries your moaning about (I would assume china)
have very lax business regulations , thanks in part to milton friedmans advice rendered to the chineese "communists" ( friedman, like Thatcher was a disciple of Fredriech Hayek )
There is a lot of legislation that exists to protect employees from exploitation ( a lot of it doesnt actually do this ) and thusly to employ anyone there are a lot of hoops to jump through.
But the reason this stuff exists in the first place is that employeers made it nessissary.
