Soon to happen here too.
Socialism is not sustainable.

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
or People's. Socialists don't identify their governments, because the governments are all democratically based, like those of Europe. Socialism isn't a dictatorship.
And I'd suggest that the extreme reaction in the US created by words like Cooperative, Socialist and other terms is an example of xenophobia, just as the ongoing suspicion of immigrants, legal and illegal, is. You think the Pilgrim Fathers and all their followers applied to the Native American Government for Visas Passports or Permits of Entry? It certainly did wonders for the Health of the Native Americans.
Double Adjective like "Socialistic" (sic). Socialist is an adjective, meaning related to or referring to Society or Social groups, or as a noun meaning in a manner of what is understood to represent generally understood Socialist government (the Social Safety Net, Pensions, Health Care, the opposition to poverty and excessive accumulation of wealth to the detriment of others). It doesn't need the "ic" to turn it into an adjective, but certain groups insist in using the term "Socialistic" (sic) partly, IMO, because it's an awkward, ugly word which repels. Rather like the word "Quisling" did decades ago, it conveniently demonizes without offering evidence. (Quisling was tossed out by his Nazi masters withing weeks of his "takeover" of the Norwegian government not least because he couldn't run a local post-office.)
I actually thought I'd heard the last of "Socialistic" (sic) after the demise (but not the death, unfortunately) of the John Birch Society at the hands of Wm F. Buckley in the early 1960's. Sadly Birchers are making a comeback, despite the death of Communism 20 years ago.
Perhaps it solves the problem of having a "permanent enemy" discussed in Orwell's 1984 as a source of social cohesion and paranoia. It serves as an artificial power base.
Robin Hood programs like Social Security, Medicare, The "Healthcare" Bill, The takeover of the auto industry, etc. They are all policies that tend toward socialism (which is what "socialistic" means despite pedantic bloviation from dubious sources).
Anything that makes government a caregiver or puts government in control of enterprises that are properly the domain of private individuals and is paid for by taking money from citizens.
We have been tending that way gradually but steadily for decades and it is the Democrats who have been the prime movers of these policies. Now we see them accelerating in the Obama Administration, while Europe crumbles as a result of these misguided schemes.
No, actually they tend towards capitalism, because without massive state intervention in the US, GB, Germany etc. to save the banks and certain key industries, capitalism would have collapsed world wide and that is what they, the politicians, have been desperately trying to prevent. After all, that is what their masters employ them for. Far from producing wealth, the capitalists have destroyed it on a gigantic scale by their sheer irresponsibility and negligence, and only the existence of the much despised centralized state machinery and the even more despised and maltreated taxpayer have been able (perhaps) to save it, and then probably not for long. The next crisis is probably just in the offing.
authoritative dictionary? On the other hand, what a perfect "word" for Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck (who should also have the word "maudlin" or "sniveling" attached).
In the case of two car companies, buying a minority share in order to keep them afloat, which appears to be working, is rampant socialism?
What isn't rampant socialism to you? Would you prefer a return to 1870's laissez faire Capitalism and the conditions which prompted Republican President Teddy Roosevelt to intervene and regulate businesses?
convenient usurpations, abolished the Monarchy, the Rump Parliament, the Twelve Years Tyranny of Oliver Cromwell, the Bloodless Revolution, several Reform Bills and the introduction of a Labour based party (once upon a time). And now you've Hanged Parliament (they tried to hang the Regicides too, but I think they could only come up with the elderly Admiral Vane, the rest having conveniently pre-deceased Cromwell or fled). What's next? You're still only the second oldest Parliament in the world, and short of the volcano engulfing Iceland, you're not likely to surpass that.
The Sun headline is pretty funny. "Squatter in Number 10."
"Squatter, 59, holed up in No 10 " LOL
I don't like tabloids, but sometimes their headlines just make me laugh.
