I don't care what any pinko says, this is definitely not the best way to run a government. All it does is insult human beings who actually work hard and it doesn't recognize our accomplishments or abilities.
The only reason why feminists, pinkos, and idealists like this idea is because it tries to make everyone equal by giving them all equal paychecks no matter how hard they work, and it forces the rich to pay for everything.
Here is why socialism will never work.
1. It forces the rich to pay for everything which is just stupid because,no matter how much money the rich have they will never have enough to pay for everything in the country. That is why almost all socialist countries have crappy health care and poorly built houses. Because the rich can pay for all of the medicine or all of the materials needed for the housing of everyone in a country. Plus when the rich go broke they can't pay for anything else.
2. It gives everyone equal pay, no matter how long or how hard a person works. This basically means that a doctor gets paid the same as a mcdonald's frycook. And a person who works for 9 hours will get paid the same as a person who works for 3 hours. Plus people aren't robots, they aren't going to work they're hardest for nothing. So basically if everyone got paid 15 dollars a day, no matter how hard they work, there's going to be alot of people who aren't going to work their hardest and as a result nothing is produced causing the entire nation to fall into poverty.

So now you see why socialism is bad. The only exception is China, and they're only rich because they force everyone to work and because we build all of our factories over there and buy all of our stuff from over there.

A political philosophy which asserts that the needs of society outweigh the rights of the individual.

The individual in such a society is at the mercy of the ruling elite since it is they who determine the needs of the society. Regardless of how the ruling elite come to power the end result is always the same - a Nanny State or a Police State. In the Nanny State the individual is treated like a child who is incapable of making decisions for himself. In a Police State the individual is treated like a criminal for thinking for himself. So whether the state is protecting you from yourself or protecting itself from you really doesn't matter. The end result is that there is no one protecting you from the state.
Some states which practiced socialism:
United Kingdom - Nanny State
Nazi Germany - Police State (Yes Nazis were socialists)
Soviet Union - Police State (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics)
Huge Chavez, Venezuala - Police State (only Hugo knows what's good for you)

Direct collective onwership of all productive assets by everyone, resulting in moneyless free-access to whatever people need.
After capitalism has gone, old former capitalist political farts will be heard saying "I remember when people were employed and exploited for profits till they dropped, in order to eat and have a roof over their head. Now they only work about 10 hours a week without bosses, get everything they want without paying, and no tell can them what to do. Terrible! It's terrible! I'm John Major, and I used to be charge, you know"

"During the cold war there was a massive amount of propoganda against socialism spread by conservatives who didn't want to lose their control over business and government."
Nope.
During the cold war there was a massive amount of propoganda against socialism spread by conservatives who didn't want to see their country turned into a home for gulags and starvation caused by inefficient government.

1. Jesus was the ultimate socialist! Teaching Socialism.
2. He used the loaves and fishes as his example of God providing for the masses.
3. Therefore Socialism is best Honored as Gods domain only.
4. When The State has Domain over Socialism Pukey little paranoid tinhorn psycho dictators deliver Death to the Masses, Not loaves and Fishes
5. Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot.
6. Seperation of Church and State, This is Gods Mandate not the States.
Stalin! Father Russia! Father of Socialism! Worked, froze and starved 20 million of his fellow countrymen to death in the mines of Northern Siberia.

LUKE 12: 22 - 34

22 Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.
23 Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
24 Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!
25 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his Life?
26 Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
27 "Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!
29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it.
30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.
31 But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.
32 "Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
