The US imperialist subsidization of the military can be used to
indicate the success of the socialist model --if one could eliminate its

violence, hierarchical authoritarianism, heedless waste and pollution.
It demands a willing suspension of disbelief, or cognitive dissonance,
or the overwhelming ability of the hegemony of the dominant order
to obscure reality, for US citizens to willingly accept the huge
transfer of wealth into the pockets of military-industrial con-artists
while begrudging poor people a better chance at a better life.
The spectacular success of this sleight of mind is evidenced in
the many victims of the system who continue to express support for it
with verve and tenacity.
