: You talk of "the revolution" and of "fighting," so my question is, how do you foresee introducing socialism to (to pick a country) the United States? Do you mean to persuade people to adopt it through democratic, peaceful means, or do you intend to overthrow the present system by force and install and implement socialism by force? If the latter, what do you do about those who reject socialism?
As I said here, the MAJORITY of people must want socialism before it can happen. Only the MINORITY (cancer cells) will be treated with force. The socialism that the majority wants will be 'implemented' by majority rule (which, admittedly, is called 'force' by those in the minority who are sore losers).
I would consider Russia a far more likely possibility for revolution than the U.S.
