    I dislike, both on a personal and a political level, Socialists.

    Did or did the paper not write that about the boy? Yes or no?
    Did or did a UKIP chairman not say that foetuses with Down Syndrome should be terminated? Yes or no?

    National socialism was about as socialist as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is democratic.
    It depends what you mean by socialism. I see Nazism and Communism as two different types of socialism. Two different types of ownership by the state of the population.

    To be fair, I don't think he was suggesting forced termination á la Nazi Germany.

    What about UKIP members (serving as borough councillors, no less) who think legalising same-sex marriage caused UK flooding?

    Having more polar bears with the idea of eating more children is far more vile of an opinion than banning gay marriage.

    I've already said that I hate the Socialist Worker and it doesn't speak for me or indeed most Socialists but you seem intent on running me around in circles. Might I suggest you get your head out of your arse, read a few books and grow up. Maybe then we can have an interesting and insightful debate.
    Reminder that the mezzil once argued that the people of India deserved to be killed and enslaved by the British Empire because they were 'selfishly hogging their resources' and should have just shared them with us to begin with.

    Possibly I'm not sure. But that comes down to the your side in the ethical debate over abortion and disability, rather than the extreme idea of having more polar bear to kill children.

    And where are you on the idea of an elected politician believing that legislative change caused flooding?

    I liked the time where he linked to an article about a private summer school in America, and blamed that for rises in university tuition fees. In the UK.

    Now that wasn't me. I have never blamed anyone on the rise of tuition fees, I support it.

    No I went to a state comprehensive.

    The rich have largely worked for their money, the majority of poor have not. They earned it. (not talking about inheritance)
    Nope. You do not become rich by working hard. You may become a bit richer than the other plebs but forgive me if that doesn't knock me off my feet with how much better than me you are. The only way to get rich properly is to be a capitalist. And that means strong-arming workers into working for profits that go into your pocket. It's not about working hard at all, it's about forcing those less fortunate than you to work hard for you, and then claiming both the profits and the credit in truth due to them.

    Let's get back to the premise of the article. Have you any idea how many children in our sad world have been killed as a result of restricting medical care for curable diseases? How about economic exploitation of the third world causing poverty resulting in the death of children? How about arms companies selling arms and fomenting civil unrest in the middle east resulting in the death of children? All things done in the name of maximising returns to investors.

    See? Capitalism kills children - and you cheerlead it.

    This just smacks of anti-white hate speech. Why arn't you complaining about grizzly bears?

    Poor story, by a fringe group of individuals.

    I had to laugh though by the outrage of a 19 year old socialism specialist. Get your head out of the books and go and experience life. Dare to look beyond the veil of front stage society.

    Socialism is way broader and infinitely more moral than conservatism. However all political ideologies of the current day are past being even slightly useful. Humanity is heading towards a global single civilization, the sooner the better.

    The current state of capitalism means the Global Economy is set up to fail. This can easily be seen with a brief bit of research into resource availability and the Fiat monetary system.

    There are socialists left in this country? If there are any I am sure they will not agree with the article.

    They did. The point I'm trying to make is that you can't generalise a stupid comment from a bunch of idiot Trotskyists to all Socialists. Surely you can see that's unfair.

    Horatio here was selfishly withholding his delicious flesh from a starving polar bear and if he had simply shared a limb or two in the first place he would still be alive.

    So, what was it you said, exactly, about that summer school that discussed Miley Cyrus then? I definitely remember you trying to argue that degrees in sociology weren't qualifications.
