In response to Laura Perrins: Left-wing men really are the weaker sex, Ravenscar wrote:
By definition, Socialism is ultimately shrivelled selfishness. Weak-headed people are drawn to Socialism; it’s the easy choice because it doesn’t require people to exercise intellect or conscience, very conveniently. It endeavours to imitate Christianity, but Socialism laid bare is antithetical to altruism, benevolence, faith, hope and charity. Dressing up Socialism as ‘caring for society’ surely must rate as one of the greatest con-tricks of all time, if not the greatest. You need to have a soul to be empathic. That is the black hole at the source of Socialism: it has no conscience, no heart, no compassion.
