3. Democratic Socialism, like in Scandanavia.

There, people can own as much as they want or live as simply as they need; and no one's too rich and no one's too poor, because the government works to make an even playing field for all the people.

Michael Parenti talks about our present situation, among other things, in "Democracy for the Few":

Gotta love Corporate McPravda. Words like "socialism" are equated with Stalinism and Democrats. A concept like "democratic socialism" is seldom read and practically never aired. Limiting the ideas people hear about means people will have fewer options to consider when thinking about where to head.
