Wisdom from the past

“It may be laid down for an undeniable truth, that where all work nobody will want, and to promote this would be a greater charity and more meritorious than to build hospitals, which very often are but so many monuments of ill-gotten riches, attended with late repentance.”

Wm. Petty, 1699.

(Socialist Standard, November 1923)
