Sunday Rest: brocialism. Word Not To Use Today.

Brocialism is to do with brothers, though not the sort of brothers who have parents in common, but the sort of brothers who are involved in the Class Struggle.

Brocialism describes a sort of socialism in which, naturally, women's rights are absolutely central. Unfortunately at the same time it's a sort of socialism which avoids doing anything practical to encourage or establish them.

Now, I'm not saying that brocialism isn't a useful concept worth naming.

But making it sound as if it's an attack of flatulence caused by a middle-management expense-account lunch was probably a mistake.

Sunday Rest: brocialism. This word is a blend of brother and socialism. The word social comes from the Latin socius, a comrade
