That’s why I like it. Thanks.
Though the old distributivist would say socialism has been hijacked by the people pushing for a servile state. They don’t care if they control people’s lives in the name of a company or in the name of a state, so long as they have that control.
I’d say almost all socialism in the last decades has been ‘servile state socialism’. Though there are some organic ‘we care about our people’ outgrowths of socialism. Canada’s healthcare system, and a lot of its competitive crown corporations were or still are good, functional socialism. The healthcare system is getting tanked by bureaucratic inflation and stress from immigration. But the competitive crowns still do their jobs very, very well all while turning a profit for the government.
