Andrew Carnegie Quote

“I believe Socialism is the grandest theory ever presented, and I am sure it will someday rule the world. Then we will have attained the Millennium... Then men will be content to work for the general welfare and share their riches with their neighbors.”

Ahhh yes, the demonic oligarchs that perpetuate the glory and lies concerning the system of those that were once mere peons and chattel  now being reduced to just numbers.

The "time of the sword comes to an end" Mahdi walks among us, Saad Al Melik Saad Al Sund. There is no failure in this communication. Carnegie understood well the trappings of riches and the worship of money. His example in later life should be a lesson to all industrialist who lord over the world. Socialism is not the problem, but the corruption within the ranks of leadership. A very wise man indeed. There will be peace.

It's a corruption of the Christian way.  Being content to work for the general welfare and sharing one's wealth is truly noble  as long as it is voluntary.  As soon as it is compelled by law (i.e. socialism), it is servitude  and it has never been implemented equally among the people  the leaders live an elitist life of graft and collusion.  If the people themselves maintain the spirit of 'my cup runneth over' the work takes care of itself.
