Actually socialism is a policy, is it not? Yet it seems there is some dispute about what the term actually means.I get the feeling that if you were ever asked to debate a policy rather than attack general terms and phrases you like to banty about, the conversation wouldn't go very far.
I'll drop a name here. Plato established the idea that when we engage in debate it is most important to initially define your terms in a precise manner. This is what I'm attempting to do, this being a debate board. If you don't agree then I'd be interested in your reasoning.
