It amuses me that evolutionary biologists believe in social fairness directed by an outside, benevolent agency. When I have pointed that out on a few memorable times, they have resented the ironic implications.

... and that 1%, or at least 1, are Nazis.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Just anticipating your inevitable anti-muslim tirade...

I'm not aware of any socialist states who labeled themselves as such, that actually adhered to socialist theories and practices.

Yes, and in history books (hint: think of some tribal societies)

You could ask the same question of the libertarians around here. Hell, ask the capitalists while yer at it...

"Socialist" is a pretty broad term.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
