Karl Marx summed up Communism as “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” This is a good, pithy saying, which, in practice, has succeeded in bringing, upon those under its sway, misery, poverty, rape, torture, slavery, and death.
David Mamet Speaks the truth, truly a rarity. I have a standard thing I say about communists, but I am busy doing other things, so I will write it up later. For now, go read an article that really does speak the truth about power. He also says: ‘The individual is not only best qualified to provide his own personal defense, he is the only one qualified to do so.’
