WHAT is Socialism? - A broad alliance between Communism with more liberal personnel towards the centre left, writes G J Cleaver.

Where does Corbyism fit into this group?

Way to the left I believe.

What is its motivation?


Its ultimate aim?

Domination of the populace by bureaucracy and legislation.

Remember the alternative meaning of left is sinister.

In the words of William Boetcker 1873-1962: "You cannot help the poor by ruining the rich, You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong, You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift, You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down, You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred, You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence, You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."
