: 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.

Hey, At least Marx ascribed some useful function to religion which is more than we get from Mr. Stoller - indicating a certain religious tolerance might be expected in a pure application of Marxist principles. Daresay I should pick a Marxist purist over Barry's Utopian 3000 plan?

I choose neither and will only be forced to submit to this nonsense after Mr. Stoller's successful armed revolution.
