Peace?

If we understand Marx, then we must understand this:

"There an be no peace on this earth, as long as rich an poor, they
 still exist." -- Lee Scratch Perry

This is a verifiable fact, not just a Dub lyric.  Socialism cannot
solve that problem.  As long as there is property, there is rich and
poor.

I stand with anyone who wants the occupation troops out of Iraq,
Afghanistan, Palestine and elsewhere.  But this does not mean I
recognize myself as being in a common party with them.

>From WordNet (r) 2.0 [wn]:

  socialism
       n 1: a political theory advocating state ownership of industry
       2: an economic system based on state ownership of capital [syn:
           {socialist economy}] [ant: {capitalism}]


  communism
       n 1: a form of socialism that abolishes private ownership
       2: a political theory favoring collectivism in a classless
          society
