    First socialism and Bible-
    Christ encourages individualism (not owning a property) well guess what , God has given Canaan for the Jews to own so... you've got to stop Using the scriptures out of context and using a Socialist Christ , God let the people choose their kings and even commanded them to follow authority.
    Second, socialism and authority and influence, does it propose to demolish education then? since it's the primary culprit of setting standards and influence in this world . following the influences of the society, in opinion or on what is good or bad hinders people ... (anyway i dont get this part ,a lot of contrasts )
    And third socialism and competition - In my opinion a world without competition is the most demoralizing situation man will ever face, when goods have no value and initiatives are not given recognition, when people stop working because that is "what man is" without drivers, then instead of what the author believes to be a eutopia, we'll get a dead planet.

    I probably just fundamentally disagree with his ideas on a political level but understand and sympathize with his ideas specifically regarding the free expression of art.


    Daniel Cherninhas quotedlast year
    For the recognition of private property has really harmed Individualism, and obscured it, by confusing a man with what he possesses.
    Eric Burnellhas quotedlast year
    The true perfection of man lies, not in what man has, but in what man is.
    An-nisa Pratiwihas quotedlast year
    it is much more easy to have sympathy with suffering than it is to have sympathy with thought.
