Isn't Democratic Socialism just another version of Socialism with the same problems....?

    yes.  the fundamental problem is that not everyone wants socialism and thus a police state has to be created in order to force the unwilling to give up their assets, incomes, and positions.  this inherently sets the stage for a dictatorial regime such as the old CCCP -- and the most brutal [Stalin] will rise to command it all.

    Putting the word Democratic in front of socialism changes nothing.

    study it closely....especially in those countries where kids here say it "works best"...

    notice how many of those countries are monarchies.... notice how the wealth is STILL in the hands of a generational aristocracy... notice how the "benefits" are not funded by the wealthy but rather by the working classes from their OWN labor...

    look at Sweden, for example.... four or five families own about 80% of the country's wealth... meanwhile, the more you take from the system in benefits, the greater the share of your income goes to taxes (unlike the USA).... that means the working classes never have the means to build wealth and move up in life... working class parents will have working class children and working class grand children... 

    it really is just an extension of the age-old Feudal system where each class "owes" the class beneath them just enough to remain in a comfortable state of stasis generation after generation while only a select few actually own the wealth created by the system as a whole...

    Nope ONLY in conservatives minds.

    Democratic socialism entails a democratic government creating programs designed to benefit all society.

    Whereas far right describes socialism as a government take over of all industries and distributing the resources among the people.

    I wish the "Democratic Socialists" in Congress would try to forge a new thing if they want a different Political Party..Instead of recycling the same old rusty chain.

    Marxist propaganda. That's all it is. They mean harm, and so they do harm. Don't let them tell you what you see them doing is good.
