In a socialist government run state.

You still haven't told us what your definition of "socialism" is. Mine is the one found in the dictionary, to wit:

so·cial·ism | \ ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm \
Definition of socialism

1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2a: a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b: a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
and I totally agree that socialism has not proven to be a viable economic system. It has failed everywhere it has been tried.

I'm just not so sure you agree with the dictionary.

I agree with you, socialism is a failure. I also agree with Churchill's definition.

Nope. The Nazis were hard right conservatives. The first thing Hitler did was try to imprison and exterminate all socialists and communists.
Mr. Charleston,

Actually, the National Socialist German's Worker's Party drew their support from the left. They were definitely anti-communist, but were socialist in nature, advocating labor unions, government control of business, national health care, public works project, national welfare, and gun control. They rose to power absorbing the left, not the right.

it didn't last long... The socialist name in NAZI was just a hook that was discarded within months of his coming to power. His first move was to kill socialists and communists or round them up and put them Dachau.The government didn't take over any businesses.
