I don't know perhaps you should read a little and who knows think by yourself: "When the world's two great propaganda systems agree on some doctrine, it requires some intellectual effort to escape its shackles. One such doctrine is that the society created by Lenin and Trotsky and molded further by Stalin and his successors has some relation to socialism in some meaningful or historically accurate sense of this concept. In fact, if there is a relation, it is the relation of contradiction. "
"As for the world's second major propaganda system, association of socialism with the Soviet Union and its clients serves as a powerful ideological weapon to enforce conformity and obedience to the State capitalist institutions, to ensure that the necessity to rent oneself to the owners and managers of these institutions will be regarded as virtually a natural law, the only alternative to the 'socialist' dungeon. "
Yet Canada's socialist healthcare system gives UNIVERSAL healthcare for every Canadian citizen. There has never been a single Canadian citizen that has lost a home to medical bills while medical bills are the #1 cause of U.S. bankruptcies, and Canada's healthcare system costs HALF per capita as America's and delivers BETTER results...
It wasn't just 'SOCIALISM' that brought downt he Soviet Union, it was an arms race as well as extremely low oil prices, depriving them of vital income.
It isn't good to be too socialist and it isn't good to be too capitalist, you need a balanced, mixed economy. When it comes to health insurance, that needs to be a socialist program. If you fail to see that, then I'm sorry, but you are either evil, ignorant, or dumb.
