The Socialist Poseur
"A man who has nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the existing of better men than himself."
– John Stuart Mill, "On Liberty"
Compassion, Hedonism, Idealism and Justice, Social Status
A member of several socialist organizations, you fight for the rights of the impoverished. You hold impassioned speeches and campaign tirelessly for the betterment of the poor. But deep down, you know it's all just a show. You may be an idealist, but you are weak-willed, and the comforts of your privileged upbringing hold too much sway to fully commit to social change and action. Yet, you are also unwilling to risk losing the excitement and sense of belonging that comes with being a socialist activist.
