Socialists have been effectively destroying human freedom…

“In the past 150 years (at least since Marx), the socialists have been very effectively destroying human freedom under humane and compassionate slogans, such as caring for man, ensuring social equality, and fostering social welfare. The environmentalists are doing the same under equally noble-minded slogans, expressing concern about nature more than people (recall their motto “Earth First!”). In both cases, the slogans have been (and still are) just a smokescreen. In both cases, the movements were (and are) completely about power, about the hegemony of the “chosen ones” (as they see themselves) over the rest of us [read: “the masses”], about the imposition of the only correct worldview (their own), about the remodeling of the world.” [p.6]
