“Fifty years ago, there might have been some excuse (though not justification) for the
widespread belief that socialism is a political theory motivated by benevolence and
aimed at the achievement of men's well-being. Today, that belief can no longer be
regarded as an innocent error. Socialism has been tried on every continent of the globe.
In the light of its results, it is time to question the motives of socialism's advocates.”
- Ayn Rand, ‘The Monument Builders’
Rand wrote that just over fifty years ago, in 1962.
In your view, is there more or less evidence now for its thesis?
Or is time for questioning over?
