Albeit, they are not completely in control, but it’s inspiring to see what they do with the time they are given.

Socialism is more seen as a “safety net for the people, however, due to the fact that the government regulates and provides living conditions and other important parts of human survival, citizens of a socialist country may not feel as if there is any encouragement to strive to do the best they can, as the government makes sure that they don’t die from not paying bills or losing their home or whatnot.
