Nothing is easier than to give Christian aeceticism a socialist tinge. Has not Christianity declaimed against private property, against marriage (sic), against the state? Has it not preached in the place of these, charity and poverty, celibacy and mortification of the flesh, monastic life and Mother Church? Christian socialism is but the holy water with which the priest consecrates the heart-burnings of the aristocrat.

I still don't get it, kids. Must be all that "overeducation".
