I thought of your post today when I came across the following article. Innovation and creativity will probably be the "currency" of the future...

A life, lived free of obligation leads to creation. Stagnation is a perspective that blinds the imagination. Value, should not be measured from the sweat off of our backs or calluses on our keyed fingers. We are no longer the gears of the system. If there were an accurate measurement for the value of a human life, I would weigh the ‘Condensation of Imagination’.

Thatcher is one of the last people you'd go to for a correct definition of socialism.

I don't understand why some people almost seem to refuse to accept the correct definition, which is something that is very widely prevalent amongst conservatives? And to a slightly lesser extent, liberals.

The "correct" definition exists in a textbook. What is put into practice is something much different.

But textbooks are known for being biased. What about those complaints of history textbooks leaving out events?

The best source would be "The Communist Manifesto" rather than something a school district put together.

If 'in practice' is 'much different' to the definition then perhaps it has no real relation to it. On many occasions regimes have stood behind an ideology whilst acting on the complete opposite.

The correct definition is the only valid definition that needs to be referred to, not what anyone might think was put into practice.
