Ythanside BS: Anyone still a socialist/communist? (147* d) RE: BS: Anyone still a socialist/communist? 13 Jun 07


Well, John, everyone's allowed their point of view, but I have to say I was surprised by the 'socialism is the politics of envy' statement. I have always equated socialism with compassion, fairness and basic human decency, an awareness that the vulnerable need protection from the predatory, and that all of society benefits when we look out for each other. Make money, by all means, but don't allow yourself to become embittered by having to pay the resulting taxes. If you know of a fairer system, do tell us.
