It makes me bloody laugh. People spouting for years on the Internet about Socialism is Evil. About they would rather die (and certainly rather kill) than accept social ownership of anything. And my reply is always 'Capitalism needs some social ownership to work'. But apparently it's not an economic alternative, it's the soul-killer or something.

And now - ha ha - their own beloved government has undertaken the largest nationalisation in human history. I assume then that they will be taking to the streets, killing and being killed in their millions, to defend their economic system against this incursion? Just like they said on the Internet all those times?

Not that we socialists are much better. Did we look forward to the death of capitalism? Well, it's dying now - how keen are we on the actual process?

Now if thou wouldst, when all have given him over,
From death to life thou mightst him yet recover.
