An Ur-Socialism teaser

To me, the basis of socialism is the idea that we have a communal identity in addition to our individual one, an identity based on being members of not just a particular community but ultimately of the human community as well, and that from there follows the idea that there are communal rights and responsibilities that everyone has.

Life is a balancing act between communal rights and responsibilities and individual ones.
