What I'm in favor of:
- an individual's right to excel, to flourish unimpeded by the constraints of class, color, belief system.
- the social contract ~ the joined and shared responsibility of each, for each ... other. I am in favor of a system of cooperation that spreads the opportunity for an individual to accumulate wealth, prestige, happiness, and 3 stuffed animals per household.
- Reason ~ I am in favor of rational thought, logical conclusions, equitable outcomes, and ethical behavior. I am in favor of Reason, the human Faculty, having the ability to decide what each of those is.

The Group Ride as a Socialist Endeavor
Your local slugfest can be a relatively harmonized effort where each rider gets the opportunity to excel, while still ensuring the safety, productivity, and happiness of the entire group.
A rare thing indeed ~ American Socialism.
I call that American Individualism.
I am not a fan.
