    Would you support a socialist revolution that attempted to end our free-market economy and implement an economic system which reconciled economic development with a social conscience?
    Similarly, if the new republic were to be founded on the principles of promoting freedom, ending class privelige (including the monarchy), nationalising the country's resources and tackling the excessive power of trans-global companies (many of which exploit workers' human rights), would you support the revolution?
    Yes.

    Idealism shouldn't be confused with immaturity. :mad:
    The revolution you described sounds awful and would only get the support of thugs, wasters, anarchists, young idealists and elder idiots. Me personally, I would take up arms against this revolution it sounds a dreadful idea and sounds horribly similar to Russia in 1917 :p:

    Perhaps you think perpetuating inequality is beneficial?

    Arguing that something is inevitable is just weak, defeatist and could have been applied to many of the things we take for granted today, such as racial and gender equality. We have a duty to change and make progress.

    Yes if it wasnt being run by a total clueless nobhead whos ultimately in it for himself, but by a group of smart and shrewd people than i would back it 100%.

    No, the revolution would most likely fail anyway. The British are far to comfortable to attempt to disrupt the established system, not that I support a Socialist view either way.

    No, it would probably descend to Anarchy, Chaos and Dictatorship similar to past "Socialist" incarnations.

    On the contrary. I'd actively resist it.

    Revolution cannot bring about socialsim.

    I believe eventually socialist values will be valued again, with the impending environmental crisis and a post-nuclear world.
