: I like to address everyone that is against everyone being equal, not divided into classes due to money and power, by asking them this question..."Should a higher class person with more money be allowed to evacuate a sinking boat before a lower class person with less money?"

I am heartened by your message, but true courage for a socialist my friend is to ask "would you choose to your brother from drowning over a stranger?". When you can honestly answer no, when you understand that all people are brothers - then you are an egalitarian socialist!

: People say that our capatilist society, although a brilliant theory, cannot be changed into a socialistic society, it is too late. Well let me say, that if we don't start doing something about it now, it will always be too late, until is gets to the point where our society is beyond repair and healing. It is time we change the way our society works, and how people are labelled through their money status and such.
: Besides, it's worth a try, no?

Exactly comrade! The revolution is only possible with action. What is to be done!
