Thread: Taking Socialism Seriously
#1 Taking Socialism Seriously02-22-2012, 01:17 PMBy Larrey Anderson Feb22
In a master/slave world there is no right or wrong. There are the strong and the weak (the rich and the poor). Socialism sees the world through the prism of master/slave. From this vantage point "truth" is synonymous with "power." Socialists claim to be able to use that power, by making the state the locus of authority, to bring about justice and peace. To borrow a phrase appropriate to the occasion, let's descend to this "low but solid ground" and take socialism seriously. There is a way, using the master/slave logic of the left, to distinguish legitimate from illegitimate political power.

I read this book in college in the early 90's.
This is the long version of what you just posted. Fukuyama is a Neoconservative. Maybe now some can see how this ideology has it's roots in the left, but many "conservatives" actually espouse it.
