But it is a collectivist idea, though isn't it? Just because it operates at a local level and not a national level, doesn't make it about individual freedoms. It's about what the community wants. I don't see why socialism needs to be equated with national level autocracy. |
The national independence parties (Plaid Cymru and SNP) position themselves as socialist, but they're talking about localism not nationalist policy. Though obviously they'd like it be their nation, they are talking about localised collectivism.
