Piers BS: The Euston Manifesto (57* d) RE: BS: The Euston Manifesto 03 Jun 06

Ifor, if doing nothing is the alternative to attempting the impossible task of making capitalism work for workers, then I will do nothing. However it isn't, making socialists is what it is about at this stage, we can't have socialism without socialists. Yet you, like the Eustonites, demand the rights of Social Democratic capitalism, which are nothing if not abstract. I have the right to live in a free Britain, so chuffing what? - it is also the right to be forced into wage-labour, exploited, and the opportunity to choose who will adminster the state to oversee capitalism every few years. These rights I will gladly forgoe for needing no rights at all because I am not separated from the means of living, which is what socialism means - common ownership, democratic control of the means of production and free access to every good and service (note that this is a concrete material change in social relations rather than abstract notion).
