Quote - Ivor Thompson

"from the point of view of fundamental human liberties there is little to choose between communism, socialism, and national socialism. They all are examples of the collectivist or totalitarian state . . . in its essentials not only is completed socialism the same as communism but it hardly differs from fascism."
British Labour MP Mr. Ivor Thompson, The Socialist Tragedy. Ivor Thompson left the Labour party to join the Conservative party in 1948.

Just for shits and giggles, you should read The Road To Serfdom by Hayek. I'm working my way through it right now and you might find his perspective interesting.

If I sent you a copy, would you read it?

What, through the mail?

Sure.
