Exactly How Stupid Do You Have To Be?

•, by L. Neil Smith

In North Korea, I've heard they're eating one another. And in Sweden (as in much of Europe) hostile barbarian savages are eating Western Civilization alive.

California is eating itself.

In each case (and many another you and I could both name) it's all because of an obsolete and discredited 19th century idea, an insidious, poisonous, obscene idea first promulgated by hustler and flimflammer Karl Marx in 1875: "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs". It's the same idea that killed the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and is presently killing the Kingdom of Great Britain. It has killed perhaps hundreds of millions of individuals in the past century.
