Are you conflating socialism and communism?No it is not a false equivalence.
For socialism to work, you need a no excuses mentality for it to succeed. If one can't make it work from a family level, one can't possibly expect it to succeed at a village level. If villages can't make it work, then it doesn't work at a canton level and so forth until one reaches the sovereign.
Socialism only works from a bottom up. A top down approach leads to repression.
Socialism is compatible with democracy (e.g. the Scandanavian model), Communism is not.
Socialism is about equality of opportunity, communism is about equality of outcome (with the sneaky exception of party leaders and their cronies).
