When i said on previous page that socialism causes hubeings to become deranged, i meant communism and/or excessive socialism causes hubeings to become deranged and then evil; examples are Stalin and Mao.  So thumbs down to communism and/or excessive socialism.

Socialism would be a great form of government for a society of robots.

Robots won't care that everyone is equally poor.
  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

I think it does that (except for the "Leaders" and their cronies, who get much more) but the UBI in truly socialist countries is well below the poverty level set by most western nations, and in some cases, below starvation level...

Some people think universal equal poverty is a good thing... Mostly the people who think that are "Leaders".

I was referring to an ideal form of socialism, not totalitarian socialism.

Wherever socialism spread, misery followed.

An "Ideal form of socialism" is at best just a temporary thing.  It exists until it can't.  Then you get dictatorship shitholes like Cuba and Venezuela.     Who wants that?

Have you tested it out with your friends and family yet?

How many real communists do you know?
