Do you think that this quote has any bearing on Socialism?

"Every decent person should be ashamed of the government he lives under"

What type of government (if any) corresponds with Socialism?

If it's socialism, then the proletariat should have nothing to be ashamed of, since they are in power and it is a government which serves their needs. :P

If I had to classify that quote, I'd probably associate it with anarchism.

If applied to everyone, ever, it would be IMO anarcistic.

If applied to just certain countries (Nazi Germany, USA today) it could be seen as more pro-democracy or anti-capitalist.

Thirdly and finally, it may be an urge for a person to get involved in politics (you can't really live under a government if you're a part of it, can you?)

[quote="ComradeCatfish"]"Every decent person should be ashamed of the government he lives under"

"Every decent american should be ashamed of the government he lives under"

(my personal opinion)
