We get so hung up on a word. whatever system this is it works and we should copy it

Why do people so often cite the failures of democratic socialism by cherry picking their examples? Why not cite Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, Japan, Australia, Italy, Canada, Norway, Spain, Finland, Ireland, Belgium, New Zealand, Austria, Switzerland or the Netherlands — all countries that have successfully achieved a balance between capitalism and socialism?

No country is perfect, but citing the worst examples does not move the conversation forward in any meaningful way.

Democratic socialism has succeeded in many more places than it has failed
