The problem isn't people coming here on H1-Bs, but their difficulty in turn that into a green card. The "apprentices" would mostly stay here if they could. And does anyone really want to argue that immigration of well-educated, highly-skilled engineers is bad for America?

All the focus on the political immigration debate seems to be on low-skilled workers, and the answers aren't so easy there. But anyone who can come here and work a job that pays $100k+? Keep em coming, I say.

Only in the fevered imagination of Socialists does it not require a strong central authority.

Without market signals and without central authority, how does an enterprise know how many tractors to make?

The key flaw of socialism is excessive concentration of power. It can't be fixed and must be discarded.

Capitalist welfare states deliver all the supposed benefits, while leaving 'the means of production' free.

Marx wasn't just a loon. He was a blithering idiot. Read about the mans life. Alcoholic failure who lived his whole life on Engles' charity.

But he told people what they wanted to hear when they didn't have any history to inform their views. Modern Reds have no such excuse.

Fascists are all socialists. Learn some history.

Socialism is the general term. Specific examples of socialists are: Communists, Fascists, Anarcho-syndicalists, Followers of Juche, Communal religious orders, Kibbutz residents.

The only ones that work at all are the voluntary ones. e.g. Hippie communes can work, if hippies are allowed to leave at will.
