WITH reference to Robert Cox’s letter “Socialism is better than capitalism” (Herne Bay Times, April 1) – he mentions a world co-operative where wealth is produced and owned in common. You know this might just work, providing we were to have the human nature gene surgically removed. It always annoys me when the media say that Ed Milliband does not understand business, of course he does (he is a lot of things but not stupid). But it goes against the ethos of left wing Labour which in principal is all money to the state, not to put a finer point on it, communism. Russia among others have tested this system to destruction, it does not work. Capitalism is the only viable alternative.
