Does anyone know what socialism is? Does anyone know what capitalism is? Well as far as I can see it means what it means to the people telling you what it means :-) Into the mix comes this web site - the Freedom Road Socialist Organisation - and this quotation which made me smile and then think.
"Today the rich and powerful, the tiny handful who squat atop our social pyramid like huge jeweled toads, try to claim the banner of freedom for themselves. They use this mighty word to sell everything from convertibles to panty liners. And when they do, they reveal what they think freedom means. For them, the rulers, freedom means the freedom to structure everything in society to serve their own interests. Meanwhile, for the great working class majority, the freedom preached by the rich means only the freedom to choose between a rock and a hard place, between selling our labor to them to enrich them further and starving to death."
Help us spread the word about these important stories...
