How about because Norway or because Sweden? I don't give a shit what you were told in the USSR. The full name of North Korea is the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Does that mean it's a democracy because they say so? Was the right wing business friendly Hitler a Socialist because he said so?

I was actually thinking of Suharto and Hitler rather than the mere wannabe Pinochet. There was plenty of capitalism under those two. Suharto was even a friend of the West because even though he probably killed a couple of million he made sure the oil and mineral rights were available to be exploited by multinationals.

Socialism failed in the USSR but I don't see a problem with it in Northern Europe but then any hint of common good is evil Socialism and I've just realised I'm arguing with roman_mir so I'm not interested in banging my head against a brick wall. Bye bye.
