Quote of the Week: Anthony M. Ludovici, “The Sanctity of Private Property”

Anthony Ludovici

British philosopher and sociologist and critic, Anthony Mario Ludovici (8 January 1882 – 3 May 1971)

Capitalism is a condition in which the best administrator of property in excess of man’s physical and professional need, and the best testamentary disposer of such property, is assumed to be the person who happens adventitiously to be in possession of it. This is nonsense.

Communism is a condition in which the best administrator of property is assumed to be the central government. This is also nonsense.

These two forms of nonsense are now at deaths grips. It behooves us , if we wish to save our civilization, to find a way out of the absurd duel between these two forms of nonsense, and in order to do this we must be quote clear regarding what is happening.
