It works great until you run out of other people's money.

There are a couple of dominant excuses as to why it's failed every time it's been tried. One can be paraphrased as "Well, that's because they didn't do it right," and another as "It failed because [Mao|Stalin|Pol Pot|Castro] and the others in power abused it for their own benefit."

Socialism goes against the innate human sense of fairness and the right to benefit directly from our own efforts and abilities. For this reason, it can never work.
