Communism and socialism are two very different things. And we don't have socialism here in the states. We have programs that provide social benefit, but it is not socialism.
Human nature is skewed by the environment humans are brought up in. We here in the west have been raised with the concept of property rights and greed for the last few millennia. There are tribes dating back further that do not have those concepts, even Native Americans. When the Europeans attempted to 'buy' land it was a foreign idea that they did not comprehend. So we must be careful with generalizations.... not you specifically Cal.
