You’ve also not explained how it does this. [quote=“Cameron, post:57, topic:112835”]
As opposed to socialism which has resulted is mass murder, genocide, starvation, and oppression in every place it has been tried while do nothing to improve the live of the people in it except for the very few people at the top.
Allende’s regime did not result in those things. But the CIA backed a coup which put Pinochet in power, a man whose methods involved throwing a pregnant woman out of a helicopter, as well as raping female prisoners using dogs. Revolutionary Catalonia was crushed because most of the West wanted nothing to do with it and would allow Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy to ship troops and equipment to help Franco put it down.
Even with how oppressive their regimes were, numerous socialist regimes improved the lives of their people. Castro committed revolutionary violence (which even liberals did historically) but even John F. Kennedy thought that Batista’s horrendous exploitative regime deserved to die.
