Similar Goals, Opposite Outcomes 150 150 JP

Looking objectively at the world without my hammer, I believe both socialism (and communism) and capitalism want the same end, to advance the greater good. The question is why has communism/socialism ended so badly everywhere it was tried and capitalism was an incredible success? And, don’t even get me started on the lack of historical perspective many people have when regurgitating the propaganda from either side. The fact is that more capitalism (e.g. individual freedom) gives the world a better more prosperous society where socialism (e.g. government control) produces horrible outcomes. Same goals, different outcomes.
