Reading articles written outside the United State gives one a new perspective. The Guardian is a British publication. This is an article written by a French (from France, not teaching French) professor teaching in England. He wonders how could anyone say France is socialist and then lists the left wing candidates as coming from the Communist and Troytsky partices, as well as the imperative of a 35 hour work week and fee everything, naw, sounds capitalist to me.
Notice how he uses rhetoric and totally ignores the very success of Eastern Europe that imperils the very noticon of 'free health care, education, etc.' THere is no fre lunch Philippe, but then this guy is a political scientist, not an economist or capitalist.
