Socialism - Totalitarian

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on July 14, 2004 01:17 PM
Orwell was smart enough to get it half right. He saw stalin and hilter, avowed socialists, acting in ways that he found contrary to his beliefs in freedom and liberty. And even though they were supposed to be on the same side, he had the courage to say that he didn't agree with their actions.


Of course, if you have ever read Hayek, then you might think that Orwell was nuts to believe that socialism could ever be compatable with individual freedoms. But that is a discussion for another time.
