But the other part of human nature is communitarianism. There’s a natural tendency of human beings, in addition to wanting to do things for themselves, they feel a great responsibility in wanting to be part of a community. So I think the debate for the new generation is instead of capitalism or socialism is we are going to have both and which proportion of each should we have in order to make this all work. Its a much more sensible debate. Howard Dean, DNC, 4/5/2009, Paris, France
Howard Dean needs to learn the difference between doing something voluntarily and being forced to do something. Socialism is forced, communitarianism is not. Communitarianism is “small self-governing communities” not mammoth government from Washington. It is time Howard Dean learns the facts before he speaks.
