How does one determine "breaking thin ice" as different from "patrolling thinly iced waters" on routine patrol, for pollution or other problems?

"Socialism has one absolute outcome: wide spread poverty. "
Well, tell that to the Scandanavians. Finland calls itself a Demorcratic Republic, the same as the US, but it sure looks and acts like a socialist state but given their tax rate and social policies. And there's not much poverty to be found compared to, say, the richness of Appalachia.
Classic Greece was a Democracy, just like the US. Complete to having both citizens and slaves. So was Iceland. Perhaps that means Socialism is a superior state, since it does not allow for slaves?
