Oh right. What to, some sort of libertarian?? When did this happen?
But its March now, how did i only just find out what happened?
And that is one massive shift in ideology, How do you go from ardent socialist to free market advocate just like that??
Do you think private/public partnerships are ever justified in key services such as education and healthcare?
I like a lot of Socialist ideas, but I think outright Socialism stifles enterprise and entrepreneurship a bit too much, and often stifles economic or public improvements for ideological goals. Blairism/New Labour FTW.
Yeah, why should people who can afford a private service be allowed to use it, when instead they could be putting a further burdon on a crippled, woefully inefficient public service? Whilst we're at it, let's abolish all private schooling - afterall, if we're in the game of suggesting money should be invested (in ones health), then it shouldn't be allowed to be invested in education either (or business, I guess), and lord knows that if the exchequer needs anything, it's more people cashing in on something they're already paying for (oftentimes more than most) but aren't currently using.
Remember guys, it's incredibly easy to moralistically repremand the fiscally liberal, denouncing their selfish ways and offering greater rewards to people merely for being born unto this country when it's other people's money that's being given away. Very generous indeed.
In your own words, what exactly is socialism?
(Sorry if this is a stupid question, i'm not too educated in politics.)
Why do you think the world is ready for Socialism? When Marx himself even said that capitalism has to reach its pinnacle before Socialsm can be achieved.
