That I was a Marxist in my teens is n’t quite true. I was an International Socialist and there was, is a difference. A Marxist was rigid and unyielding; the socialists were people, in my mind, who only wanted the best for the whole of humanity. They had an ideal that was beyond reproach, fairness in economic, political, social matters for the people living on this Earth. As a cause it is beyond reproach, as a reality it was a failure, disaster even. You see human beings are not motivated by altruism. It is true that they have altruistic intentions but that is not enough, they must have something much deeper than that in order to achieve something. They must have a burning desire to go to the ends of the Earth for themselves in order to find their true destiny.
that’s all for today folks.
Note. (I hope this does n’t come across as preaching. It isn’t. It comes from the heart and my only reason for sharing it is that it might help someone else besides me.) Thanks.
