The Soul of Man under Socialism
by Oscar Wilde

" In this work, Wilde focuses on the utopian side of socialism. His belief that socialism propagates individuality and freedom is asserted here. The work presents an ideal situation that may or may not come true but is exceedingly inspiring!"
Under Socialism all this will, of course, be altered. There will be no people living in fetid dens and fetid rags, and bringing up unhealthy, hungerpinched children in the midst of impossible and absolutely repulsive surroundings. The security of society will not depend, as it does now, on the state of the weather. If a frost comes we shall not have a hundred thousand men out of work, tramping about the streets in a state of disgusting misery, or whining to their neighbours for alms, or crowding round the doors of loathsome shelters to try and secure a hunch of bread and a night's unclean lodging.
