Oh boy. We can already tell this is going to get heated.

If you even do so much as whisper the word "socialism" within earshot of other people, you're sure to make someone angry almost immediately. They'll start screaming at you before you even realize what is happening. What exactly are they angry about?

Some believe that the word "socialism" and anything remotely socialist is bad, pure evil, and has no place in these United States of America, much less Boise, Idaho.

Well, you may be surprised to learn that Boise has adopted, and used, numerous socialist services for years now. If you're reading this article, odds are there were socialist services happening in Boise before you were even born.

So let's find out what the actual definition of socialism is, and what service Boise has been using for some time.
