    “Socialism needs the thrill of the novel, the excitement of smashing things up, the buzz of overthrowing an established order and starting from scratch again.”

    True although it’s not only socialists who think like this. Plenty of those on the political right are also seeking “excitement, novelty and an adrenaline rush from political ideas”.

    This seems particularly reductionist and as if you are avoiding discussing what capitalism has become, and how this post captialism best serves a societies when including socialist principles and policies. The avoidance of a nuanced understanding seems quite a prominent and preferred angle of your writing.
