Most of all, Socialism is an idea that works really well in the minds of people who like to theorise an awful lot. It sounds so great on paper, doesn't it? Justice for all, no oppression of the working class... but it doesn't really work that well in real life. (Had so many discussions about "Utopia" and robots doing all the work with a friend of mine. He now invests in real estate xD)
Yep...in the end, everything ends at government controlling almost every single aspect of social, economic, and individual life. It never works.
