Not Quite an Answer

Doctor Zero has an interesting essay entitled The Answer to Socialism.  He makes many good points but I think he ignores the very important fact that socialism appeals across the conventional Left/Right political spectrum.

I suspect that those who admire any aspect of socialism do so because they are in one of the beneficiary classes.  Even the conservative taxpayer supports socialism as far as things like roads, fire departments, garbage collection and police are concerned.  Any attempt to unseat socialism's hold on people's minds must eventually deal with that.
