Margaret Thatcher, in a television interview for Thames TV This Week on February 5, 1976. Prime Minister Thatcher said, "...and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them." It has been popularly paraphrased in various forms: * "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money [to spend]." * "The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." * "Eventually, socialists run out of other peoples' money [to spend]."

Was Joseph Stalin socialist?

Yes, Stalin was socialist because socialism was the economic and governmental system he believed in and kept in place in the Soviet Union. His main philosophy was to establish "socialism in one country." He was a "communist" in the sense that he believed in the ideas of Karl Marx and that socialism should replace capitalism so that communism could eventually replace socialism. Stalin would never have allowed true communism to develop in the Soviet Union, because true communism has no government. according to Karl Marx. Even Marx said that it would take generations of life under socialism, before socialism evolved into capitalism and that socialism would have to be forced upon the people for that time until all vestiges of capitalist thought were wiped out.
