"The heart of socialism: "From each according to his ability and to each according to his need"" FYI That is not socialism. That is the basis of Communism as said by Karl Marx. Big difference.

Clearly you do not know the history of Socialism/Communism. Marx believed that socialism was the first step to communism, and Lenin acted to make it so. You also likely don't know about the differences between the First International and Second International. And you call yourself a Progressive. All so-called Progressives are socialists becoming communists.

How much is the difference between out right ownership of private property by the Government or having Government dictating the uses of privately owned property by fee or force?... Not much different at all.
