Re: A reminder about what socialism is, was 10 things NYC should do now that Amazon HQ2 deal is over

You are conflating communism, socialism, and national socialism.

Cuba and Soviet Russia did not allow much ownership of private property. That's communism.

In 1950s Britain and Sweden, the government owned much of the means of production, like steel mills. Private property was permitted. That's socialism.

In Nazi Germany, the government owned some of the means of production like Volkswagen, but most were owned by large corporations like Krupp. Private property was permitted.
