China starved 80 million of its own citizens to death during the 60’s and early 70’s. (That number is according to the estimates of modern Chinese scholars). Over 90 percent of Chinese there lived in poverty. Since largely embracing capitalism China now has less than 10 percent of its citizens in that state of poverty and worldwide obesity has now overtaken hunger as the largest social problem. Of course pure socialism is still available if you want that, Venezuela and North Korea are there for everyone to enjoy. I saw a report yesterday that Venezuelans have given up looking for dogs to eat and now just buy canned dog food instead to feed themselves.
