      Liberal Movement to Fight 'Piggish Socialism'


      Arutz Sheva blogger Amir Vitman is starting a new political movement. It's goal – to fight “piggish socialism,” described as “people who want to live at other people's expense.”

      “I am sick of seeing a tremendous number of ignorant people, lacking a basic foundation in economics, who demand 'social justice' – a term with no real meaning or clear content – when what they really want is to return to the happy days when the economy was planned out by Mapai,” he explained. Vitman asked the public to stop and think whether Israel was really better off financially in past decades than it is today.

      The new group is to be called the New Liberal Movement, a non-party group that supports capitalism and individual freedom.
