Erkenntnis des Tages

„Der Sozialismus ist in Wahrheit nicht das, was er zu sein vorgibt. Er ist nicht Wegbereiter einer besseren Zukunft, sondern Zertrümmerer dessen, was Jahrtausende der Kultur geschaffen haben. Sein Element ist die Zerstörung; er baut nicht auf, er reißt nieder. Nach dem Erfolg seines Wirkens müßte man ihm den Namen Destruktionismus geben. Denn sein Wesen ist die Zerstörung. Er bringt nichts hervor, er zehrt nur auf, was die auf dem Sondereigentum an den Produktionsmitteln beruhende Gesellschaftsordnung geschaffen hat.“

(Ludwig von Mises, 1881-1973)
