The socialist camping trip was wonderful, but the capitalist camping trip was awful. It would clearly be better if we could, somehow, make the whole world like the socialist camping trip. This shows that socialism is inherently morally superior to capitalism, regardless of whether this kind of socialism is feasible. Even if pure socialism on a large scale is not feasible, there may at least be a type of socialism that is. Cohen's book contains a simple but powerful thought experiment meant to prove that socialism really is inherently morally superior to capitalism, even if capitalism 'works better'. Cohen means to prove people worries about capitalism are correct. The chapter explains - through parody - that Cohen's argument for socialism is fallacious. When people see how easily his argument for socialism can be flipped to produce an even better argument for capitalism, they see that Cohen's argument is flawed.
