If we had to provide a better understanding of what "socialism" is like for most Africans in the world, we could say "ujamaa" cooperative economics. Those who practice the tradition of Kwanzaa are already familiar with that term. Euro-centered "ujamaa" however is much different. The "common ownership" that most Socialist Governments refer too, would appear against "individualism" something that most Americans have grown accustomed. Some scholars would argue that Africa has always been Socialist. In a Socialist Government, your business would not be yours alone to have, but belonging to the overall nation or Government. Socialism can also be used as a way to negatively redistribute wealth to certain parties and members in higher Government. The real problem in most of these systems is Government itself. Government still has the power to control and regulate the economic flow as they see fit. The issue with preaching Egalitarianism in this day and age is based on our corrupt politicians to begin with. Thus Socialism in America will not come about by choice. It will be by the slight of hand. Those in America will not be asked to choose it. It is very possible the installation of Socialism has already begun. But what does that really mean for Blacks In America? The Euro practice of Socialism, most likely will be just as disgusting as it's practice of Capitalism. It will not appear as an extension of a Fascist arm, especially not with Obama as it's face. Whites would be more cautious about Socialist Ideals because if individualism dies in America, the reality of America's need for diversity will sink in. Racist Whites will then be forced to work for and work as a collective unit with other Americans, those many they would never allow to sit at their tables to eat to being with. But isn't it that way anyway? But Capitalism seems to provide a healthy illusion for them, that as individuals and independents we are fully response for how our lives are going. Since the birth of Man, this has never been the case. Socialism without Government is workable. Because the true Government is your immediate group, community, tribe or family. And if we did live within communities that could identify themselves as one and secure themselves as one, Socialism and even "ujamaa" in America would be more successful. Humankind's failures have usually been formed around trust. And because Humankind is not educated on how to build trust, we are taken advantaged of by the building of Governments that "police" Human activity. This is obviously where Humankind will have to meet it's ultimate demise. True Socialism would not work without trust. Egalitarianism would seem alien to us now, even though it is the most common form of economics on native Earth practiced by the insect and animal kingdoms. There are no individuals ants that decide to pull leaves across the field for their own selfish agendas. Of course Humans appear to be more complex than ants. It does make sense however, that we would commit ourselves to any system that works for our people. If America is becoming Socialist, what does that mean for you?
