Frankly, Your Grace, I think this seriously misrepresents the socialist position. The clue lies in the word ‘society’, the collective being the means and the end of revolutionary change. All for one, and one for all. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. No man is an Island, entire of itself.
Socialists work to improve the lot of all, to the very least of our brethren. All those who work, and I have worked hard all my working life, do so in order to build on the achievements of our antecedents and improve society for those who follow on.
The idea that socialists are selfish individualistic drones who take but give nothing back is a scurrilous lie, and I don’t really think you meant to give voice to it.
