The socialists have a certain kind of logic on their side: if the
collective sacrifice of all to all is the moral ideal,
then they wanted to establish this idea in practice, here and on
this earth. The arguments that socialism could not and would not
work, did not stop them: neither has altruism ever worked, but this
has not caused men to stop and question it. Only reason
can ask such questions - and reason, they were told on all
sides, has nothing to do with morality, morality lies outside the
realm of reason, no rational morality can ever be defined.
