Nobody asked but …
There’s a reason why socialism is not revealed for what it is in the prevailing, mandatory, government-run schooling system. Mandatory, government-run schooling systems are socialism of the highest order. Economists may insist on a strict definition saying that socialism is where the state controls the means of production. I would respond, what could be more of a means of production than the labor force, 99% of which comes from public schools in modern, industrial states?
China and India have populations greater than a billion. There is a chance they have larger public school systems than the USA. But even if they do, the USA still operates a socialistic system in the top 3 in the world (the Pentagon probably is the 4th largest). Why don’t we just go by the USSA?
