    Whether it has been Fascist racism, Stalinist forced collectivization, or the modern variant Randism, reductionist ideologies, presenting truth as absolute, have ALWAYS created a moral anarchy, where the dreamed about ideological perfect end justifies any means.

    Mass murder usually follows.

    Finding the good in human affairs is always a messy affair of healthy debate and compromise.  Truth is always relative and fuzzy and actual imperfect humanity must be the measure of what is real and possible.

    This is the HUMANIST idea.  

    Labor was the first price paid for all things. It was not by money, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased. - Adam Smith
