Socialism is the idea that everyone can be free to make their life better. Capitalism has made it extremely hard for families to lead a healthy life. If you can't afford food, you starve. Where as socialism ensures everyone is fed, clothed and has a roof over their head. In my opinion anyway.
The misconception of Socialism is that it destroys opportunity for business owners. I highly disagree. The fact we live in a society of higher taxes for the poor, and lower for the rich, shows that if you start your own business and take a risk...you'll be rewarded if you do it right.
I know a lot of people will disagree with me. But if you collide Capitalism with Socialism. I think that is the recipe we need for a better society.
