Tink, that is SO true...ima prolly post as a separate Q, because I read that Bernie Sanders and two more Dem front-runners are now proposing something like a guaranteed income, with (I think) New Deal kind of make-work projects.
I was discussing that with friends, and even the most liberal of us can foresee all kinds of problems there, if we try that on a long-term basis...but I am glad to see the proposal as a starting place.
So far, both socialism and capitalism (not sure about other economic systems) both end up with very few with immense control over SO many. You tend conservative, I lean liberal, and I value your assessments.
You doubtless know this? Twenty million died under the Stalin terror...I watched a YouTube video called "The Revenge of the Romanovs," being of course Stalin/Bolshevik...exponentially worse than Romanov rule...
