There are no socialist success stories: John Stossel

Last week, I reported on two myths about socialism. My new video covers three more. Myth No. 3: Socialism works if it’s “democratic.” As the Democratic Socialists of America put it, “Society should be run democratically — to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few.” Sounds nice.

But Venezuela’s socialists were elected. “They can start off democratically elected,” says economist Ben Powell, director of the Free Market Instit...
