The socialism of fools

Seen on the back of a t-shirt in Berlin:

'AMERICA land of corporate greed and home of the enslaved'

Helpfully topped off with a picture of a skull. The owner apparently works at the regional TV station. Which is nice to know.

Germany is, of course, the land where executives have to be forcibly restrained from handing their last cent to the needy, where Mercedes, BMW and Porsche haven't a hope of shifting their stuff on the home market, and where corruption scandals are unheard of. It's also the country where the great Social Democrat August Bebel coined the phrase 'the socialism of fools'. He meant anti-Semitism, but hey, we all know who really controls the land of corporate greed, don't we?
