The Spot-On Quote Of The Day…

21 May 2010 @ 18:49

…is awarded to TCOTS guest blogger Roxeanne de Luca for the comment she made in the Comments Section of the posting by Smitty, in his Fisking of the Dalai Lama, mentioned immediately below:

The theory of Marxism – “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” can only be justly and morally implemented in a capitalist, Christian system, in which the enforcement mechanism for the first clause is the motivation to better one’s life, and for the second, the dictates of one’s conscience and religion.

Otherwise, the enforcement mechanism is a gun, and the result is poverty, slavery, or both.

Spot-on.
