Communism

A quote I loved and lost. …

Communism

It’s a cruel and humourless sort of pun
That so powerful a present tyranny
Should call itself by the very name of a belief in community
By a word communism
Which in other times evoked memories
Of villages and village inns
And of artisans concerting their skills
And of men of learning content with anonymity

J.R. Oppenheimer
