"Look for your own. Do not do what someone else could do as well as you. Do not say, do not write what someone else could say, could write as well as you. Care for nothing in yourself but what you feel exists nowhere else. And, out of yourself create, impatiently or patiently, the most irreplaceable of beings."

Children are not Born Evil!

EXTRACT: "Communists flatly reject the almost medieval concept of ‘evil’ that has surfaced once again during the Edlington case. No-one is born ‘evil’, whether they are Adolf Hitler, JV Stalin or the Edlington boys. We in the CPGB believe that all human beings are redeemable or can be rehabilitated - under the right set of circumstances (or the right sort of treatment). Surely the subsequent history of Jon Venables and Robert Thompson amply confirms this, even if Denise Fergus is too blinded by grief and anger to see it herself - with The Sun around to make sure she never does. Clearly, thanks to the specialised and intensive education these two people received, they started to flourish academically and are now - for sure - qualitatively different individuals from the alienated and highly disturbed children who killed James Bulger. Why cannot the same go for the Edlington boys? Beyond that, communists fight for a society where all our children - not just the Eton-educated elite like David Cameron - are provided with sufficient resources and the sheer time to develop into fully rounded human beings".
