Most govts people consider to be socialism doesn't completely remove the incentive for people to innovate. It seizes just enough wealth from the productive not to discourage them. So say in Norway where the taxes are high, an Elon Musk can still exist because he would still benefit greatly from amassing wealth from his genius. Then think of Rand using Venezuela and not Norway in the video where taxes are actually higher and then you see why this kind of anti Venezuela propaganda annoys me.
