Socialisms

Inspired by a speech by Winston Churchill:

1. Christian socialism (inspired by charity) says, “All mine is yours.” This is voluntary and compassionate. Francis Schaeffer spoke of “the compassionate use of acquired wealth.”

2. Leftist socialism (inspired by larceny and envy) says, “All yours is mine.” This is involuntary and requires state coercion.
