Socialism is a good system for good people and a bad system for bad people.
Capitalism is a good system for bad people.
When people compare them, they should takeinto account not only the incentive of the system, but also the degree of altruism of the people that make the system work.
It looks like arguments in favor of socialism are not rational because they suppose that human being are virtuous. It looks like a perfect human fallacy.
People describe socialism as a perfect ideal and, when they realize they realize they cannot reach it, then rationalize saying that it is not that good after all.
