Socialism in one minute

Did you think socialism has been tried and failed. Then think again and try this thought experiment...There has been a socialist revolution throughout the world, consciously, democratically and politically by a socialist majority with no leaders. There is now common ownership without borders, nation states, wars, money, employers and the wages system. And there is now democratic control of the means of production by all of society. Raw resources, factories, machines, transport and communication systems and distribution networks are now being used solely to produce and distribute goods and services directly to meet the needs of all society rather than the anti- social objective of profit-making. Work is being carried out creatively and willingly by free men and women. Labour is social and cooperative. The are no classes, class interests and class privilege. And there is the guiding principle: "from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs".
