I still don't get this hunger for reasoning in the abstract

I still don't get this hunger for reasoning in the abstract (which is often fun, I do it often with science or technology) with human affairs after all the horrors that history has taught us.

Sure, my own family cell is "kind of" socialist, scope = spouse and kids, only, if you wish - the adults often share all or most of the value they bring in with everybody else - although they also have individual private property. (I dare anyone try approaching some of my wife's experimental tinkering stuff unarmed.)

Now, I kindly request all:

the day I have the "great idea" to try generalize that to my street, block, city, county, or country, using all encompassing force so that everybody abides to the same... please, someone, slap me in the face...

... UNTIL I WAKE UP FROM MY FORGETFUL INSANITY.

Or maybe it's a vocabulary issue. Socialism implies state. An almighty one.

We know how that ends.

Or... "Socialism" without state and only volunteers?

Another word (noun) is needed.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
