Ruptured Rhapsody

A different kind of "blog," consisting of selections from my scribblings over many years. The date of each post is the date I originally wrote that piece. So, the top post is usually not the latest post, because I continually add writings from different years to the blog. If you have visited here before, you are likely to find new posts anywhere on the page. I'll continue to add "new" posts as my time allows.

The old paradigm: all providing for all, because each existed in all, and all have to provide for each, as an intrinsically valuable part of the whole.  “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need;” not according to his work or contribution.

The new paradigm: The contribution of each to all creates an obligation of the part of all to help each.  Each contributes to all with the sole motive of creating that obligation.  And all helps each only because of the contribution of each – each has no intrinsic value – in fact, each is not a part of all – because, for one thing, there is no all.
