A troubling gray-area

Selflessness is unquestionably a virtue, even in the United States, where the “pursuit of liberty and happiness” are enshrined in the Constitution.

There’s nothing new about the assert
ion  that socialism is a systemic approach to living selflessly, and communism is a “selfless” system.

Here’s the fatal flaw in those ideas:
Just as religion is not the final authority over moral behavior, communism is not the final authority over selflessness.

While that basically says it all, I’ll elaborate further. When an authoritarian body seeks to control human behavior, it invariably fails, and furthermore the reverse of the intended result is often the result.

Do we really need to become sheep to live the ideal life? Not many would agree, except perhaps the wolves.
