Hidden Socialism

Someone suggested to me the other day that I ought to join th eAustralian Labor Party. I replied that I was unable to commit to a party that upheld socialism as one of its core values.

It made me recall a quote from Winston Churchill on socialism:

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel or envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

Many people in Australia seem to have forgotten that the Australian Labor Party has a socialist agenda at its core!
