Untimely Meditations

"The first problem of any society is not production, but distribution. The Mbuti, the Pygmies, the Kwakiutyls and the other primitive societies are able to live in idyllic subsistence, while the Western societies of abundance generate the social forces which threaten their very foundation. The most widely held political doctrine in the West is socialism, in spite of the complete repudiation of the idea that it produces more wealth for the greatest number of people. And Marxist socialism, in spite of its exposure by economic science as a senseless dogma, still enjoys high esteem in some Western countries." (04/06/11)
