Hi Rog, Platt and all other Imperialist Fascist Scumbags :-) (only joking - honest!)

There is one serious flaw in your post Rog. You confuse Socialism with Communism as do
many Americans and non-europeans. Socialism existed long before Marx and Engels
drafted the Communist Manifesto and will (does) continue long after Communism has
disappeared. The UK had a Socialist government (off and on) for a number of years in the
50's, 60's and 70's and did very well under them - the Open University being a prime
example of this.

If we're going to debate this subject then the least you (and everyone else come to that) could
do is to ensure that the terminology and definitions are correct. Mistakenly referencing
Socialism for Communism and vice versa is little better than mistaking Capitalism for
Fascism - although the distinction in this case is probably moot :-)
