Young Britons really want socialism (without paying for it)

Better start teaching them how socialism works then, starting with their exam results. In future everyone's exam results will be the same. Everyone will get the average of all the scores, regardless of what their own score is. So if you get an A in maths but the average is a C then you get a C too. People who work hard lose out, lazy bums get more than they deserve, which is the essence of socialism. And of course everyone soon realises working hard is pointless, so the average drops rapidly until everyone gets an F.

The slavish loyalty of so many TFF’rs to the “Conservatives”, is a phenomena well worth deeper analysis. Indeed it’s a sort of institutionalism, where the poor lambs, seem to have fallen into an inherited indoctrination which has all but numbed their critical faculties beyond the point of any meaningful usefulness. I do genuinely worry for a lot of folks on here….

Slavish loyalty...? Rather rich from an EU eromenos!* :ROFLMAO:

Good to see you adopting even more of my frequently used phrases though; what was it you wrote about imitation and flattery?





*Or should that be euromenos...? :unsure:

That's a communism - it's all about "equality" and working together for motherland. Flattening society to fit one party vision.
Socialism is when government is looking after you like you're stock. In that case you don't go to school, government just sends you grades every week. Then diploma. Then lets you stay home and post your cat videos on Instagram, get free std tests and meds, but then expects you to spend some time to cry about inequality in Sudan and post "Free Palestine" under any articles.

Have often thought of setting up a communist run farm. I wonder how many would still be here after a week roguing getting bitten by clegs and soaked by downpours. Then finding that they have earned 50p an hour when the profits are divvied up at the end of the year. I think some would stick it actually, the same folk who thrive as self employed, but a lot would be gone after a couple of days. Doesn't matter which system it is, there is still work to be done. Socialists talk the talk but rarely walk the walk, just wanting to be the boss.
