1: Idle

2: Entitled

3: Weak

4: Selfish

5: Dysgenic

These attributes define the average UK passport holder, and all citizens of welfare states perfectly.

What can be done to make the UK a better place?

1. Those aren't the main attributes of a socialist society.
2. The UK isn't a socialist society.
3. Those attributes don't perfectly define the UK.
4. If your post is any indication, a less politically illiterate population would certainly improve the UK.

1: They are.

2: It is. Its one of the most socialist countries in on earth, spending almost 25% of its GDP on social welfare programmes.

3: I went through socialist education, otherwise called comprehensive schooling. Socialist society is to blame if you think i am illiterate.

So more entitlement mentality, which is a literal translation of socialism, would make the UK a better place?

It's impossible to have socialism with the Conservatives in power.

Britain spends 100 billion a year on education. That's roughly £10,000 per pupil.

How much more 'socialism' is needed per pupil do you think?

1) income taxes way too high
2) welfare way too high/way too many people on benefits
3) basically everything's taxed
4) minimum wage way too high
5) they'd rather the poor were poor provided the rich were less rich

More socialism :bunny:
The answer of socialists to the failures of socialism is always that there isn't enough of it and that they need more time. Trotsky was spouting the same excuses in the 1930s.

Sure, he has a point, provided you're already a paid-up believer in socialism (in which case no amount of evidence will ever shake your faith) :rolleyes:

(Original post by Leon Trotsky, "In Defence of October" (1932))

Fifteen years have passed since the Revolution. With all the greater absence of ceremony our enemies reveal their malicious joy over the fact that the land of the Soviets, even today, bears but little resemblance to a realm of general well-being. Why then the Revolution and why the sacrifice?
...
Fifteen years! Haw long is that in the life of one man! Within that period not a few of our generation were borne to their graves and those who remain have added innumerable grey hors. But these same fifteen years – what an insignificant period in the life of a people! Only a minute on the clock of history.

Capitalism required centuries to establish itself in the struggle against the Middle Ages, to raise the level of science and technique, to build railroads, to make use of electric current. And then? Then humanity was thrust by capitalism into the hell of wars and crises.

But Socialism is allowed by its enemies, that is, by the adherents of capitalism, only a decade and a half to install on earth Paradise, with all modern improvements. Such obligations were never assumed by us.

The processes of great changes must be measured by scales which are commensurate with them. I do not know if the Socialist society will resemble the biblical Paradise. I doubt it. But in the Soviet Union there is no Socialism as yet. The situation that prevails there is one of transition, full of contradictions, burdened with the heavy inheritance of the past and in addition is under the hostile pressure of the capitalistic states. The October Revolution has proclaimed the principles of the new society. The Soviet Republic has shown only the first stage of its realisation. Edison’s first lamp was very bad. We must learn how to discern the future.

Yep... Add socialism to capitalism, watch it fail and claim capitalism is the problem and we need more socialism! Wicked idea.

Just look at Venezuela to see what socialism leads to.

I bet you believe the NHS is 'free' healthcare too, right?
