The Politically and Economically Illiterate

As the economically and historically illiterate, as well as morally bankrupt, propose to breathe life into that Frankenstein monster, state socialism, it is time to recall the late-in-life words of the erstwhile Marxist, Max Eastman:

“It seems obvious to me now – though I was slow coming to the conclusion – that the institution of private property, the dispersion of power and importance  that goes with it, has been a main factor in producing that limited amount of free-and-equalness which Marx hoped to render infinite by abolishing this institution.”
