The fact that nearly half of Democrats who voted in this poll chose socialism is deeply unsettling.

Those are economic systems, not governments.

Either would be fine if you had a wide base of philanthropy.

Are these forms of government, or are they economic systems? Without clarification as to what is being asked, the question does not really make a lot of sense.

I’d argue that you cannot have socialism without a role of the government. Who else would determine if you have too much or what the people’s portion should be. You need a politburo for socialism.

But you don’t have government *because* you have socialism, any more than you have government *because* you have capitalism. The specific roles of government will vary based on the different economic systems, but the *form* of government need not.

Most of the developed world has a hybrid socialistic/capitalistic system including us. I like that but I would add a public option to our healthcare system.
