Overview

This is Oscar Wilde's long -- and remarkable -- essay on socialism. It's not what you'd think, if you know just a little of his biography.

Most writers are best not listened to as wellsprings of political ideas -- but Wilde was onto something, and saw very clearly the fate that would befall us all.
