Meeting with the youth icon charismatic socialist leader and national president of Asia’s largest socialist party, Samajwadi Party, in the company of veteran socialist commentator and one of the popular public intellectuals, Deoria-based Chandra Bhushan, was quite a pleasant experience this afternoon. Presenting the November issue of Socialist Factor was the priority of the rendezvous.
Socialism, an itinerary to prosperity of the nations
Without, socialism there’s no capitalism.
Democratic socialism means that we must reform a political system that is corrupt, that we must create an economy that works for all, not just the very wealthy, said U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, popular Democratic nominee who had to concede the ground for Hillary Clinton.
In India, Akhilesh Yadav, former UP CM and popular socialist leader termed the starvation death of a 50 years old woman in Bareilly a ‘Blot on Indian democracy.’ Socialism is about sensitivity towards Masses’ woes whereas capitalism is about extreme apathy and neglect.
Akhilesh Yadav in India, Bernie in America and Jeremy Corbyn in Britain represent the socialist fountain of hope and peace. Jeremy has proposed a new education policy for the British youths, providing for free elementary and university education.
Socialism is not just an ideology but a way to Social justice and equality. From the economic perspective, we know that whenever a nation moves towards BOP crisis, then there’s lack of Socialism and extreme capitalism. Altruistic and philanthropic ideas have no relevance in a capitalist society because profiteering practices have no emotions for the masses of any society.
When Socialism works towards the environment and climate protection, then capitalism contributes in releasing of carbon and destroying nature. When socialism ends poverty, then capitalism causes destitution. Socialism creates a sustainable society that can build and flourish both for the current generation as well as those to come, whereas capitalism ultimately fails.
There’s no wrong in being a socialist and promoting exceptionally great ideas for the bright future of the nation. It’s logical and the only way to create human values and egalitarian society.
From the political perspective, Capitalist leaders have no compassion for the commoners of their country, but they believe in exploitation, whereas Socialist leaders are caring and believe in the eradication of societal problems and corruption so that commoners can lead a prosperous life.
Now, Can a country be prosperous by exploiting the people? Does poverty develop a country? Is monopoly good? If the answer is No, then can there be a Capitalism without Socialism?
