"Simple really: Socialism is where the Police, Fire service, roads, schools are free and there is support by the state for the poor and old.

Communism is where the Police, Fire service, roads, schools and health care are free and there is support by the state for the poor and old"

Kinda but that makes it sound appealing. The important part being that the only surviving socialist state in this world is N.Korea and that is of course with aid from the rest of the world. No other socialist country has survived although Venezuela gave it a go, but the same outcome prevailed.

Amazingly some people still come back to wanting to try it. Usually after those who have experience of it have died out.
