Bertolt Brecht’s evaluation that socialism 'is not madness, but the end 
of madness' rings true, writes Ben Hillier in Red Flag. The main 
obstacle to the eradication of poverty, inequality and the accompanying 
violence remains the centralisation of the world’s productive assets in 
the hands of a tiny minority of the population.  Socialism – a world run 
to fulfil human need rather than fuel private greed, in which there is 
no privileged class of human beings – remains a sensible idea in a 
chaotic 21st century. Anyone can understand it.
