Since the topic is War and Other Stuff, I thought I'd add that the closest thing we have to a pure, dictionary compliant example of Socialism is the Department of Defense. In the DoD, the government owns and controls everything, and the rank and file are more or less completely taken care of in exchange for agreeing to be told what to do and obeying without question.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
