How are people paid? Under a socialist system, everyone works for wealth that is,in turn,distributed to everyone.
How do they buy and sell things that they need? The government takes the products and divides them equally , while selling productions owned by government too,sells to other states or governments.
Others say it has high taxes that is annoying,however you pay taxes so you can help others if every one is equal,even though basic needs are free,high taxes lets you help the government to help others to make them equal like them;so all can live happy.
LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!!
