It just bogles the mind when you hear the stars in the business arena who have made their fortune in the American system of Capitalism, push for Socialism. The growth of their business also depends on the Capitalist system to be profitable, so what else are these stars of business seeking? Is it Ego or have they become so arrogant that they feel that they are so much smarter than everyone else, that they should be in control and make the decisions for the little guy.
With Socialism its always the few people at the top who have everything and everyone else at the bottom have nothing. One look at the great examples of Socialism, such as the U.S.S.R.- Russia, Cuba and Venezuela is enough to make any sane person cringe. The only way for those in power can stay in control is by intimidation and force in the form of a police state of a single party system. So when these leaders of industry start talking about Socialism, either they don’t understand the ramifications Socialism or are they power hungry and have lost their minds.
