Socialist commentary

Reader comment on item: Why the Left Loves Osama [and Saddam]

Submitted by Frederick Miller (United States), Mar 19, 2003 at 16:32

I should think that with the demise of the Soviet Union, and the intensified example of rapidly growing capitalism in China that any socialist party per se would be moribund if not in fact extinct.

Who are these people and what vehicle are they using to express their creed? Don't you think there is a huge difference between the typical liberal and someone who actually wants a socialist government? I have many liberal friends but I can't think of one who believes that we should change our free enterprise system - sure they are all in favor of finetuning it and events have certainly shown that it needs that.

I'd like to read some of the hard core socialist dogma if any is being promulgated by any but weirdos at this particular time. Any suggestions?
