Als socialisten hun aandacht en energie aan prive goede doelen zouden besteden in plaats van politiek zouden ze meer bereiken dan enig overheidsprogramma ooit.
Maar ja, dan zouden ze geen socialisten meer zijn.
"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a most sacred right" a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people, that can, may revolutionize, and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit." ~ Abraham Lincoln [!], January 12, 1848 speech in Congress ~
