There's always been Champagne Socialism but it seemed to me it had turned into Cocaine Socialism. And the kind of contradiction in that I thought was interesting because cocaine is a drug that makes people very self-centred and very selfish, so to try and align that to socialist ideals, which are supposed to be being bothered about society as a whole, it just struck me as a funny idea.
