Faux Socialism

Bourgoise Socialism In the Modern World

Being a marxist communist, I can't help but support the socialist cause in the world today, as it is the necessary interim step between the crumbling system in which we are all currently imprisoned, and the possible peaceful, equal, and prosperous future we could all enjoy. I am concerned however by the trend of Bourgoise Socialism(Faux Socialism)in the world. Any time that the wealthy elite of the capitalist system decide to 'allow' the workers the luxury of vacation, or health care, or education, it is touted as a step toward socialism, but is simply a clever method of keeping us docile.
