Don't think so. Socialism is just feudalism writ large, in which 
everyone in the society who was formerly a peasant becomes 
reclassified as an aristocrat, and v.v. It was originally a reaction 
of the remnants of feudalism to the industrial revolution, and is 
popular in countries with a long feudal tradition. It is the lack of 
a feudal tradition in the US which is responsible for the failure of 
socialism to find much sympathy there.
