    This is what socialism will make people become

    Terrible and avoidable; though I fail to see what Socialism has to do with it. People have always been uncaring and hateful toward strangers and others they don't identify with. Ignoring the plight of others, even purposely subjecting them to horrific abuses are common in our history.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    Sad and scary, but I could see the same scenario happening here too.

    Russia has always had a socialist system which make people depend on the government. People become indifferant and uncaring because they cannot think for themslef, because the government is making all the choices for people.

    I just think it sad to try to infuse a situation like this as a political action.

    Should I therefore consider:

    Captalistic Response: Kids would have sold tickets to make a profit on his death

    Representative Republic Response: Kids would have formed committees to debate the appropriate way to help then claimed they would have saved him but ran out of time.

    Dictatotor Response: It did not happen and he did not have permission.

    It was a tragedy. There are things in this world that are not political ploys.

    True enough. However, if the OP's main point was that the governmental system under which a people live affects their outlook and behavior, I would agree with it. We can see it here in the good ol' US of A: e.g., the Breeder who has 12 kids and demands that "somebody" better help her out (this example is an active thread on this site). On the other end of the spectrum, the middle class and wealthy are/have been/will be looking to shield their incomes from increasing taxation.

    I'm sure we could come up with many such examples in our increasingly socialist society. It's a point well-taken, IMO.

    Exactly my point.

    "Socialist" is a mighty ambiguous word these days. What idea were you trying to convey by using it?

    If we subscribe to Glenn Beck's concept of Socialism, the U. S. has been a Socialist Nation since at least July 1861 when the income tax was established in the U. S.
