In fact, it works so well that 84% of Europeans live above the poverty line!
Compare that with the United States, which has a 12.6% living below the poverty line as of 2005.
Hey, waitaminute! I thought socialism was supposed to help the poor more than capitalism? How can a capitalist society like the United States be taking better care of its impoverished than the enlightened European Socialists?
I’m shocked and awed!
