Socialism have been the most tried, and most failed government system, next to it's older brother (Tyranny). There have been many, many communes (cults, optias). Some were small (like Zoar, Ohio), others were large (USSR, China, Nazi Germany, etc). Virtually all of them ended poorly.

Examples

  • 1607 - Jamestown, Virginia -- after attempted socialism failed, they converted to private ownership (capitalism) and survived.[1]
  • 1747 - The Shakers [2]
  • 1817 - I toured [|Zoar, Ohio].
  • 1841 - Brook Farm, Mass (Ripley's Follow Me or Not) [3]
  • 1842 - Fruitlands Commune [4]
  • 1856 - Octagon City, the Vegetarian Utopia [5]
  • 1967- Kaliflower Commune [6]
  • 1930's - Fordlandia: Henry Ford tried to bring a slice of America to the Brazilian jungle [7]
  • 1972 - 12 Tribes[8]

Still there are people that believe, "this time it will be different".
