My socialism is based on the idea that working class have to fight to have more power against the capitalism of nowadays, but without giving more power to government. The fight I am talking about is totally nonviolent.
It is true that in the USA there are many great stories of people starting from nothing and becoming rich. Here in Italy when you start from nothing you can almost do nothing! No limits has to be put on individual economic progress. I don't want a society of equals, but a society where there isn't differences between the chances of capitalist's son and chances the proletarian's son. I do believe in equal opportunities and the way to go to this direction in my opinion is:
1) to have only one kind of taxes (property taxes) and
2) to abolish the hereditary right.
I don't want equality, but equal opportunities for all! My socialism doesn't want to control the thoughts of the people, but only remove everything could be against a society based on the same chances for everyone. Everybody in my ideas can really think and feel what he or she wants. Everybody can have the goals he or she wants. Nobody has the right to tell others in what field he or she has to work! Liberty is, in my opinion, the first thing, then come socialism! Every socialism that didn't respect individual freedom have never worked! My socialism is radical just like the communist one, because it is also a revolution and it is against nowadays capitalist system, but it isn't against free trade and individual freedom. My idea is that everyone should have the same chances to buy or sell what he or she wants and can.
I think my political party has to defend individual freedom and equal opportunities for everyone, so I am also liberal in politics, even if I'm a catholic believer, because as I want to be free to do what I want at the same time I have to respect everyone's will that isn't directly against me or against others!
