For decades and decades the United States of America has been against the economical systems called Socialism a.k.a communism.(I don't see any differences).She has been against it in such a way that she is ready to launch any military attacks just to kill any elements of socialism anywhere in the world.There must be a reason, a reason that is sometimes simplified to selfishness.What is wrong with other countries to choose socialism as opposed to capitalism?
The recent Bolivian elections are viewed as a new uprising of socialist revolution from Latin American countries.Most countries in Africa which followed socialism after attaining independence from colonialists have almost given up.Undefined economical policies is dominant now.My motherland country of Tanzania is one of them.
Apparently,there is a beauty of socialism. If you ask me North America has and will always need to incorporate lots of socialism elements in order to remain "societies". The community centres,help for the poor,the homeless,the elders etc are all true values of socialism.Perhaps what differs is capitalism nature of economics whereby very few people own all means of economics. Canada's air transportation and telecommunication industries are two examples of how capitalism operates.
I am not injecting my "socialism" cross-overs here but trying to answer one hard question...why does US (and remotely Canada) hate socialism that much? Isn't the world a better place when freedom of choices is guaranteed?
