A Critical Examination of Socialism - Mallock, W. H. Originally published in 1908, for the Conservative Thought society. Probably the best refutation of the economic, logical, and psychological errors of socialism and 'equality' ever written. Mallock wrote in the late 1890s/early 1900s, but has never been bettered. A thorough, calm, rational demolition job, without a trace of invective. Contents include: Historical Beginning of Socialism, Theory of Marx, Root Error of Marxian Theory, Repudiation of Marx, Proximate Difficulties, Ultimate Difficulty, Individual Motive and Democracy, Christian Socialism, Just Reward of Labour, Interest and Abstract Justice, Equality of Opportunity, Keywords:Socialism Communism Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
