: SDF: Socialism by Marx's standards has never been implemented before. If it had, you'd have seen an industrialized society somewhere on the planet that did away with money and the state apparatus.
Afraid to confront the murderous past of your beliefs, huh? I am sorry but sweeping it away by saying "we have all heard this before" just doesn't square with me. Do you think the past revolutionaries thought differently than you? Of course not. After they got rid of the previous form of gov't, the new one had to have so much power that they created a monster they did not foresee. Don't make the same mistake!! Use history as your guide.
Sweden and all the "third way" countries are simply warmed over socialism repackaged and marketed to unwary citizens. The economics will be disastrous you can already see the signs in europe and canada. High unemployment and low productivity.
