The fastest crash

House prices in Northern Ireland are falling at a frightening rate. Since last summer, prices in the province have fallen 21 percent. Well, prices did go up at a frightening rate. It shouldn't surprise anyone that the downswing is equally violent.

Cool. They're leading by example. I can't wait until we're hitting y-o-y falls of 21% in the mainland.

What, in that he believed in monopoly and violence?

No, in that He wandered the earth as a healer, sharing all he had with his disciples, and told a rich man to give up all he had and give to the poor; the movement he founded shared its property. B. in C.

What has sharing got to do with socialism? Redistribution from on high to engineer permanent power holding, yes; sharing no.

Healing, no; NHS as an extended economic control structure for socialist planning implementation, certainly. Rich giving up to the poor, no; the Gini shows far greater division between rich and poor, and growing rapidly, over the last socialist 11 years than the previous decades.

Is all this God-given?

From each according to her/his ability, to each according to her/his need: sounds like sharing to me.

'If a person will not work, let him not eat' - a line in the communist manifesto from the New Testament.

I don't ascribe to socialism - and I don't think we've had a socialist government for the last eleven years either!

The difference between "philanthropy" and "socialism" is "compulsion".

Even the quote in the bible is not socialism - socialism would be "If a man will not work - give him a Mobility car."
