@NR92 -- Agree with your general anti-capitalist stance, but I question your figures. If 227,000 people are added to American society every day (net), this equates to 82,855,000 a year -- so the US population of around 330 million would double in 4 years.

I get it.

Too many have made Socialism in to a nightmare scenario.

But America now is fundamentally socialist; Any system supported by collecting taxes to pay for it is socialist.

The problem is our population growth. Socialst leaders have tried - with horrible results - to control population.

We can't keep growing...but for capitalism to work - it must.

Socialism has the root of the issue in it's name.

We've formed a society. A society that's growing by 158 more per minute. 227,000 more per day. A million more every 5 days. ([poodwaddle.com)]

The earth isn't growing....so the "capitalists" profit from wars and weapons, from stripping the earth of its' resources.

They knew forssts were necessary for us to breathe - yet they kept stripping the forests...until socialists restricted them.

They know that fuels have to be ended...but their lust for money makes them ignore this. And so far, in America, at least, low taxes (we're the lowest of any nation) on fuels and subsidies on fuel makers (we're the highest) make the capitalists' fuel obsession work.

So they push capitalism and fear "socialism"

This must end.

Not sure that I agree with your definition of socialism. But your other points are well-taken. I prefer to think that activists are those pushing for change.

@ToolGuy I concur; activists do push for change. I hope you watch the video...it's an eye-opener.

@Robecology Watched it and it also has a definition of socialism as what government does basically. Don't agree with that definition.
