Anyone over the age of 21 who still thinks socialism is a viable form of governance has shit for brains.

Hmmm. So people who have had shit for brains include Einstein, Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, Jim Larkin, James Connolly, Nye Bevan, Tony Benn, George Orwell, Bertrand Russell.

They all had shit for brains.

You are smarter than them all.

You're the second highest poster on this thread. Care to explain why you'd lower yourself to post so often on a "pathetic" thread?

I tried to get people to explain what it is makes them think Venezuela is socialist. That took a lot of posts, as they repeatedly ducked the question. That exchange was what exposed the thread as being embarrassingly awful.

To be fair, every one of those guys could afford to be socialist.

Orwell? Bevan? Connolly? Larkin? Plenty poverty in their lives.

Which they overcame by making a few bob and keeping it for themselves.

Connolly and Larkin may not have been rich but had a pretty comfortable number, in the office everyday with a modest wage but high job security.

It was up to other fellas to dig the ditches.

I'm not saying they were unprincipled, far from it, but misguided in my opinion.

Connolly & Larkin didn't make good money. Connolly certainly lived in semi-poverty for the most part, while Larkin had the pleasure of doing time in Sing-Sing. Orwell was a socialist both before success and once it had come. Bevan's socialism was derived from the horrendous poverty he experiences as a child in Wales.

You mightn't agree with them, but let's not pretend they were rich. Most socialists aren't especially well off.
