Modern Socialism

Rand and Nietzsche complain that Socialism takes away the spirit of man and replaces him with a stomach. Under socialism, man earns value not by his ability, but by his need – “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need”. By virtue of a empty stomach, one man gains the right to boss another around.

But what becomes of socialism when society becomes rich, when every need is fulfilled? Then the leftist society sinks to an even lower depth – rather than worshipping need we worship mere envy. Thus, “inequality” becomes our watchword.
