“Is Socialism Just a Western, Eurocentric Concept?”

Let me give you an example from my own background: I was in the student Left in India … we were fighting … for equality and accessible education … and other larger problems … do I remember being charged with the idea that our fight for educational justice and workers’ rights was Western? That we were somehow ‘duped’ by Western thought? Actually I do remember, and that charge came from the Right, from the cultural Right. They were fine with capitalism, but socialism was Western.”
