Can anyone tell me an actual place where socialism works and don't say Scandinavia because they aren't?

They are capitalistic welfare states.

    It sort of worked in the warsaw-pact.

    Closest thing now could be the Mondragon-corporation. Its highest paid employee makes just 6.5 times as much as the lowest-paid ones.

    There was socialist city government in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for almost 50 years.  It was very forward thinking and popular.

    Socialism worked in the USSR when it turned a backwards, semi-feudal agrarian society with constant famine into an industrialized scientific and economic world power, that managed to survive even after a civil war and two world wars. It managed to establish complete food security shortly after WWII, removed the exploiting classes (monarchy, capitalists, and kulaks), brought with it many inventions and innovations, and drastically increased the quality of life and civil rights.

    Socialism also worked in China, Cuba, Vietnam, Albania, etc.

    You are kind of splitting hairs. There are overlaps in Capitalism/Socialism in many countries. China Socialist, or what? There have some millionaires.

    You people love to claim Scandinavia is not socialist until somebody tries to emulate them, in which case it's magically socialism again.
