: 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".

It's all about sacrifice, Doc...and competing for it.

Orwell said it was all about 'all those smelly little
orthodoxies competing for our souls'. I can't argue
with him on that.

But God and Marx are both dead even tho that's not
obvious to many here as they don't seem to know
that reality is all that shit outside their heads.
