If you believe in nations having armed forces, if you believe in the population funding those armies, if you believe that it is alright for soldiers to volunteer for jobs in which they risk death to protect others - you believe in socialism. It would, however, be awesome, if we could all take the next step together and believe in the kind of socialism that brings population health, great educational standards and general wellness. Because to only focus on the "death" side of the equation and not the "life" side of the equation, as any mathematician or science (especially neuroscience) student will tell you, will lead to the sort of obvious imbalances the world is facing.
