[ExI] two kinds of socialism

I repeat, we are using the word 'socialism' in two ways.  The Americans
like SAnders who are calling themselves Democratic Socialists are not
advocating following Venuzuela's lead and nationalizing industry (that
would be very suicidal)- and V is autocratic, not democratic.  And then we

Socialism starts like Denmark, but ends like Venezuela.


But Denmark isn't socialistic.  It's just in favor of a lot of social
programs.  Just how are we going to get over this definition problem?

I suggest Socialism, capitalized (note pun) as a gov. that runs the
economy.  And socialism, small s, for SCandanavia and for those,

including us, who have big social programs like Medicare.
