Contrasts between capitalism and socialism:
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”
Ponder that contrast:
- capitalism socialism
- ‘vice’ ‘virtue’
- unequal equal
- blessings miseries
“Socialists think profits are a vice; I consider losses the real vice.”
Read those comments and ponder what do we want more of –
- blessings or miseries,
- profits or losses.
Is one choice of each pair more moral than the other?
