    It always makes me laugh when capitalists use the 'nature' argument. In most tribes, they will look after everyone, not just their families.

    Also wrt other comments, equality of outcome is a terrible idea (except maybe in a thousand years when we're living in an automated world where nobody has to work). Equality of opportunity is what socialism should be about.
    They'll also wipe out other tribes.

    We're not suggesting that you can't have some kind of stateless hippy dippy town but we are suggesting that its far harder to impose on a national (without nationalistic emotion at least) or international (let's be honest, i'd shed no tears if a billion Africans died tomorrow) level.

    Congratulations to Ken Loach on winning the Palme D'or at the Cannes Film Festival for I, Daniel Blake. I am going to a Q+A with him next week, and feel very fortunate to be doing so.

    A newspaper is something I definitely wouldn't compromise on price on. The free ones are generally ****.
