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.

You said socialism failed and I gave you an example of where it had been an amazing success. It's hard to tell though what Americans are talking about when it comes to socialism because it could be anything from the Soviet Union to Nazi Germany to people not being bankrupted for the crime of being sick.
