It is still socialism, they just don't call it that anymore. Walks like socialism, quacks like socialism, angles for a free meal at others expense, just like socialism. I remember reading somewhere that the communists of old joined the green movements.

Is there a difference, communism and socialism, apart from the fact that today's socialists aren't big on lining folks like us next to a ditch somewhere like the commies of old.
