G K Chesterton: Socialism

“What’s worthwhile to point out, first and last, is that Socialism is a tyranny; that it is inevitably, even avowedly and almost justifiably, a tyranny. It’s the pretense that government can prevent all injustice by being directly responsible for practically anything that happens.”

—G K Chesterton.

G K Chesterton: Not an everlasting coincidence

–G K Chesterton.
