The problem with distilling people down to labels is that it reduces them to non-humans. Naturally, along the graduated spectrum from strict socialism to laissez faire capitalism, a follower of Christ's (and hence Haile Selassie's) Teachings is going to come down somewhere in the middle such that the poor, elderly and disabled who need help to live decent quality lives aren't left by society in the dirt to rot. I think that most people approve of and enjoy the benefits of a measured degree of "socialism" in society (e.g., freeways, sewerage collection and treatment, air traffic control, public schools, monetary and health benefits for the elderly, disabled and widowed/orphaned, etc.). What most object to is the complete take over of private corporate affairs by government in much the same way as most object to the complete takeover of government by private corporate interests (e.g., Washington DC post-Citizens United ruling).
It should be simple for reasonable people to agree that socialism and capitalism is not an "either-or" proposition; it's always a blend, a balance. Zealotry on either side of the spectrum tends to lead to problems for people.
I enjoyed the historically accurate observation by Jahcub Onelove in an earlier post:
"Socialism has never had a chance to take root in Latin America due to USA intervention. So there's no real way to tell if it would have benefited the people or not, it's never had a chance to grow... The socialist end up nationalizing their resources (copper in Chile, sugar in Cuba) and this hurts big business in the USA, so the USA intervenes every time. In Chile the USA tried to starve the people for 3 years before the Pinochet coup. So this is nothing new. Yes the USA is willing to starve people to get their $$$. Old news."
[When he says "socialism" he's talking about a political/economic system that operates further toward socialism than capitalism along the spectrum as there is no "pure" socialism or capitalism in practice anywhere.]
Clearly there wasn't much Love given to Chileans by U.S.-puppet dictator Pinochet after their democratically-elected socialist government was toppled by the CIA. Love comes from human beings, not political philosophies or economic models. When humans are sacrificed in the interest of serving a political or economic philosophy, it's always diabolical regardless of which philosophy is being served. The "we're good and they are bad" political/economic mentality is a moronically simplistic binary approach to complex social matters which always creates fertile ground for the devil to sow the seeds of hostility, violence, injustice and human suffering.
