    Socialism is left wing, The EU is a socialist super state. The democrats in USA are socialist. Cameron might be right wing but he has no authority over the EU socialist super state, so really we are in socialism by stealth...

    How many people in the world have negative net worth? That is, what proportion of people don't own enough stuff to be worth more than their debts?

    My guess is that there are millions of such people in the UK alone, hundreds of thousands (at least) in the upper tax brackets. And I am richer than all of them combined.

    That these people choose to take out large debts on houses, cars, degrees, and holidays does not make them somehow victims of people like me who choose to save their money instead. They chose to manage their money differently.

    I suggest you go back to study, your view of economics and politics is quite superficial.

    Socialism is a system were the means of production are in the hands of the government. Europe has a mixed economy, where capitalism is mixed with some socialized government programs like health and education. Nevertheless the system is still vastly in favor of the rich, that can transfer their money to offshore fiscal paradises, or where multi-national corporations can avoid taxes without consequences.

    What they do is say how Whites own all the wealth ignoring they also include Jews as Whites. When we all know Jews are not really White European people but an completely entirely different race all together. There are countries in Eastern-Europe where Jews are in their thousands, but still many of the oligarch's are Jews.

    Just a trick they use when it's convenient to them.

    Technically Britain's PM David Cameron then is not White British. Since he is part Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry and comes from a long line of wealthy Jews involved in finance.


    If you said Whites owned and sold slaves, the Jewish involvement goes ignored. So Jews can promote White guilt, when their benefit greatly profited from these things.

    The figure cited is $1.76tn. According to the hard left front organisation posing as "charity" Oxfam, this is equivalent to the net worth of the world's poorest 3.5 billion people.

    Let's divide 1,760,000,000,000 by 3,500,000,000 and see what they are worth individually:

    $500. Each.

    If we steal all this money from rich Jews like Mark Zuckerberg we can double that! Socialism is truly a marvel.

    He is ethnically a Jew. If you don't believe me look at his nose. If I was citing his religion I would call him an atheist.

    The political incompetence on this thread is absolutely brilliant, 'all countries are socialism', 'the eu is a socialist state' - the EU is run by a centre-right coalition led by a centre-right government in Germany for a start, and most of its board members are also members of centre-right parties in Europe. As for all countries being socialist most countries are either moderately social democratic with concentration on wealth still mainly being in private hands or simply quasi-capitalist, just because there is little remains of a laissez-faire capitalist system does not mean that all countries are socialism. That is just dumb.

    By what measure do governments, universities and the media in these countries evaluate their nation's successes in achieving "equality"? If your answer is other than "equality of outcome" then you are wrong. This is socialism in all but name and applies to "diversity" as well as economics.
