About America's boogeyman, Socialism:
Much to the chagrin of the neo-liberal, capitalist ideologues who might argue otherwise, there are many aspects of our society which reflect socialistic concepts, We have public institutions such as Police services, Social Security, Medicare, The Veterans Administration,Fire Departments, The U.S. Postal Service, Highway departments, and I will not begin to list all the cooperative enterprises which operate and compete successfully within our economy.
Truth is, no society is exclusively either capitalistic or socialistic but rather a mix such as history and ideological preference has wrought. Be brave, visit these resources to learn more, and please also visit the Worker Co-op pages:
