Under $10 Audio Programs-pIs socialism desirable Is it even possible In this concise book, one of the worlds leading political philosophers presents with clarity and wit a compelling moral case for socialism and argues that the obstacles in its way are exaggerated.ppThere are times, G. A. Cohen notes, when we all behave like socialists. On a camping trip, for example, campers wouldnt dream of charging each other to use a soccer ball or for fish that they happened to catch. Campers do not give merely to get, but relate to each other in a spirit of equality and community. Would such socialist norms be desirable across society as a whole Why not Whole societies may differ from camping trips, but it is still attractive when people treat each other with the equal regard that such trips exhibit.ppBut however desirable it may be, many claim that socialism is impossible. Cohen writes that the biggest obstacle to socialism isnt, as often argued, intractable human selfishness - its rather the lack of obvious means to harness the human generosity that is there. Lacking those means, we rely on the market. But there are many ways of confining the sway of the market: there are desirable changes that can move us toward a socialist society in which, to quote Albert Einstein, humanity has overcome and advanced beyond the predatory stage of human development. The book is published by Princeton University Press.p
