Ocean City - Socialism is intriguing. It lures people to believe a Utopian state can exist in which we all share with one another. There is no need for individual ownership, we are all here to serve the greater good. Like the sirens of mythology, it has lured large populations up against the rocks since its first articulation as a contrast to the liberal doctrine of "individualism" during the industrial revolution. But, ask folks how well it works. Look at the former Soviet bloc nations, Red China, North Korea and Cuba. These "Utopian" socialist societies became a living hell for millions, some still are.
