Not a badge of honour

The Herald reports:

Campbell says he’s not bothered by what the business community thinks of his left-leaning views.

“I don’t mind being called a Marxist. I regard that as a badge of honour,” he says.

“I’d rather be a Marxist than a Friedmanite, if you take those two extremes. But the system we have is one that relies on, frankly, exploitation… exploitation of resources, and exploitation of people.”

The equivalent of a Marxist is a fascist, not a belief in supply side economics.

Around 100 million people have died due to communist regimes. Yet despite that the media won’t label Marxists as far left, yet use the label far right on huge numbers of people.
