"Socialism Is Not, at Root, About Economics"

"What is striking is that no matter what the economic failures, true socialists rarely give it up. Why not. Because it has a moral base.... 'The power of morality is the strongest of all intellectual powers…men will not act, in major issues, without a sense of being morally right.'*
    "Morality trumps economic facts if there is a conflict. This is true even if one’s accepted code of morality is objectively wrong."
