Socialism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that socialism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster.

We have all heard the diatriabes against socialism. They ring a bit hollow now. We can grant some of their points and still socialism comes out ahead: capitalism has nearly wrecked a whole planet even as clueless idiots sing its praises.
We can search/replace this passage to:

Capitalism sounds great. It has always sounded great. And it will probably always continue to sound great. It is only when you go beyond rhetoric, and start looking at hard facts, that capitalism turns out to be a big disappointment, if not a disaster.

We confront some key issues: we need a system that can function without growth. Socialism wins here. We need a system that can take control of rogue capital totally indifferent to their malevolencee. Socialism wins here. The list is long here, as the capitalist propaganda shows falling stock.
