    The French are lucky! Common Ownership and democratic control! Abolition of the wages system! When will free access be implemented? I cant wait for the state to wither Lol.  Sadly it will be business as usual, wages, profits, capital, poverty

    This could of course equally have appeared in the joking sharing section since calling François Hollande a socialist, as all the media are doing (after describing North  Korea as socialist), is a joke. But there is a serious side to this as it shows how capitalism is incompatible with democracy.A majority of voters in France, and even more in Greece, have voted to reject austerity. But you think they’ll get it? Of course not. It won’t happen in either country, despite being the expressed political will of the people, because this is impossible with capitalism under present slump conditions. What other proof is needed that capitalism is not a system geared to meeting what people want?
