Recycled Radicals

Walking past the TUC conference in Brighton this morning, I noticed a lot of members canvassing outside - some with free papers such as the 'Socialist News'.
The word 'socialist' makes me cringe - being the radical theory of sharing, aspirational indeed, but politically this country is so very far removed from that notion that it would be like reverting to the dark ages in terms of change.
From what very little I know, major investors in property in this country are from abroad (so the common people do not have access to any of that); major investors from this country invest abroad (our own government); the means of production (what do we produce these days) as our country has lost most of its means of production and the economy is now based on a service industries.

I could understand the post Dr.What. Is your initial T? Perhaps a surfeit of )( but there has been a lot worse on the forum.

Sorry if nonsensical Doctor What? but I cant put plainer than that.........it is, after all, a loaded subject and not easy to discuss in 500 characters.

The evil doctrine of socialism holds that a person with no children should still contribute to such things as schools and children's hospitals.
This is a farcical and twisted philosophy designed to prolong the survival of those of inferior stock.

You contiribute to schools and children's hospitals because the children who use them will one day be part of the society in which you live. Other people's children will one day be the people who drive your buses, police your streets, make your consumer goods or provide you with free health care and nurse you when you are old and dying.
I don't see why anyone would have a problem with this.

There is no such thing as society. There are just workers and consumers. And the consumers should not have to pay for services they do not use. There is no duty on anyone to pay to train anyone into a job they do not need to be a customer of.
A person who decides to become a parent should have to bear the entire cost of that decision. Just as a person who buys a car should.

Maybe for you there is no such thing as society but, thanks to the cooperation of a vast number of people, your life expectancy is now very high compared to how it was in less civilised times.
However, this does mean that as you become increasing old and frail and unable to look after certain aspects of your day to day life and personal care you will become more reliant on others to help you live a dignified life. As I assume you have no children to help you through these years other people will be bearing this cost for you. And this is not just a monetry cost as these people will also quite likely be working long anti-social hours which will take them away from their families and children.
