Does the Socialist Party believe in the right to a fair trial or the death sentence? I'm just a bit confused; one of your members has a Che avatar, and he believed in only the latter.
Question for socialists:
Would you accept a vast reduction in the average living standard as a necessary sacrifice to achieve a socialist political structure? Lets say a 75% reduction in living standards.
The reason I ask is that the punitive wealth redistribution measures necessary to achieve most of your goals would inevitably drive overseas the 10% highest income earners in the country that currently generate 50% of tax revenue and productivity.
Why socialism though? Why would a crisis neccessitate socialism rather than Fascism, Primitivism, Tribal Culture, Ludditism etc? Or smaller scale barter-capitalism? or Commune-ism (not communism)
I can see global capitalism falling (but I dont see it as likely) due to some mega-crisis, but what on earth makes you think some kind of harmonised socialist system will spring, from nothing, to replace it. Wouldnt each petty warlord carve his own corner of the world out?
