Yeah.  Worked so well in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, for example.

I used to believe it could work. Now I'm not sure. There's that whole human nature element that calls it into question. The element the Left insists is no bar to transition. The juvenile, ever-naive Left.

For one thing, it could only exist on a global scale, or it would collapse, as occurred in Russia. It can't exist as a national, self-contained entity, since, at a certain point, it must compete with
Capitalism. At that point, it can no longer be socialistic. Where we've arrived at a point in time where Socialism could even be on the table for consideration, society has undergone some colossal and historic change.

It may or may not come to pass in the future. But not while that collective sense of ourselves is still so immature. Same deal with Religion. We're just not ready for it.

Sure, everyone will be super poor just like all the other Socialist countries.  Be careful what you wish for grasshopper.

Socialists are authoritarians by definition.

Hence socialism flies in the face of our democratic heritage, which “encourages and breeds the idea of the primary importance of the individual.” Translation: If you value individual freedom of choice, socialism is not for you.
