Most here don't support socialism. That said, some assistance is needed with our country's bad poverty situation.
The ANC & co. are not the ones needed to make a plan though, requires a lot of sense and honesty.
It works in some 1st world countries, however they do not have 90% of the population being dependant on the income generated by 10%. All contribute, not only 10%....then it works. In SA it simply cannot work. Too many free riders.

Problem with thinking the world owes you something is that they too end up with less and less.

The concept of capitalism isn’t as selfish as you think. It literally builds career opportunities and prosperous economies for people to function and thrive together. Whenever socialist injection into this fails every supporter of that always complains it wasn’t done correctly.
As a concept, Yes. With our political landscape, No because the money will just be squandered or looted like with everything else.
