Thoughts about the Tasks of the Future

"It is not enough to change a system, to replace one economic system by another— necessary above all is a CHANGE OF SPIRIT! The spirit which is to be overcome is the SPIRIT OF MATERIALISM! We must achieve an entirely new kind of economic thinking, a kind of thinking which frees itself from the present conceptions rooted in money, in property, in profit and false success ! It is an indication of the Marxist, the false Socialism, that its way of thinking is exactly that of capitalism. For this reason I have said for years that the two form a spiritual unity, only with reversed signals!"
