It is about time that the American people were educated and informed about what true “Socialism” is and is not. The fact is that in true socialism “the means of production” are owned by all of the people. In other words, all of the workplaces and businesses are owned, controlled, and run by all of the people for the good and well-being of all of the people. They are not privately-owned by individuals and groups. In true socialism, we would not be totally equal in terms of how much we would get paid for our work, but we would be much, much more equal than we are now.
