To link Mormonism with Socialism is so wrong. The Book of Mormon admonishes the people to treat the poor kindly and take care of them. The difference between this and Socialism is the Book of Mormon advocates doing this voluntary and out of love and friendship. Socialism advocates forced redistribution and is controlled by the government, not the individual. Further the Book of Mormon decries greediness, whether by corporations or individuals. If the world lived by the precepts of the Bible and the Book of Mormon it would be a wonderful place - - - even Heaven.
