Visions and Ideals

by
The dreamers are the saviors of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know.

The capitalist system, with its institutions of private property and free enterprise, would soon be a thing of the past In the future, the State would guide the economy, direct the use of resources, and produce a material bounty that would leave poverty and want nothing more than the bad memories of a bygone era. Now at the threshold of the 21st century, it is socialism and the planned economy that are the relics of a disastrous experiment in State-managed "social engineering." Whether in the Soviet Union, China, eastern Europe, Cuba, or Vietnam, socialism has brought nothing but political tyranny, economic stagnation, and social decay. Even ...
