In my own passage out of the left, nearly twenty years ago, it occurred to me that my revolutionary comrades never thought to address the obvious questions for social reformers: “What makes a society work? What will make this society work?” In all the socialist literature I had read, there was not a chapter devoted to the problem of how wealth is created. Socialist theory was exclusively addressed to the conquest of power and the division of wealth that someone else had created. Was it any surprise that the socialist societies they created broke world records in making their inhabitants poor?
