Why do so many people reject socialism?
As a Canadian, with socialized medicine, I am greatful for socialism. I have worked for the majority of my adult life, though there were times when I was out of work that I was on assistance for short times until I found work again. Now I understand that there are some able bodied people who abuse the system, and could be working, but I also know there are people who were in my position, who are actively looking for work. I don't know, but it seems to me like rejecting socialism all together is cold and callous. Yeah, it would be nice to be able to keep a bit more of my income, but I also feel a fulfilled sense of autruism, knowing my taxes are there to help both me, and my fellow man. Just my 2 cents.
