Our military, American taxes, hardworking sacrificing Americans, American material, American leadership and much luck were instrumental in our shared Allied victory in World War II. Also, Allied military, Allied taxes, hardworking sacrificing Allies, Allied material, Allied leadership and much luck were instrumental in our shared Allied victory in WWII.
Every capitalist country is a bit socialist and every socialist country is a bit capitalist. Just a feeling, however, the varying political decisions survive on the distinctions between total perceived capitalist and total perceived socialist. Someone being played is another definition of politics.
