Thank you, Jonathan, for such a good explanation of what socialism is — and how commercialism plays into it. I’ve never had a clear idea what socialism is — but I knew the United States has elements of it. (I’m in my sunset years — I may simply have forgot what I learned in high school) :) …

In any case, I think a lot of Americans (like me) have forgotten their high school government/psych/and soc… classes!

I really enjoyed reading your piece!
