wilde unpractical law

it is unpractical, and it goes against human nature. this is why it is worth carrying out, and that is why one proposed it. for what is a practical scheme? a practical scheme is either a scheme that is already in existence, or a scheme that could be carried out under existing conditions, but it is exactly the existing conditions that one objects to; and any scheme that could accept these conditions is wrong and foolish. the conditions will be done away with, and human nature will change.. – Oscar Wilde

from Daniel Pinchbeck‘s how soon is now:

216

wilde proposed a transition to a system in which humanity was liberated from drudgery thru automation and freed from the burden of property by socialism. he admitted he was offering an idealistic utopian programme – but he did not think it was unattainable, even so..

wilde: ‘it is unpractical, and it goes against human nature. this is why it is worth carrying out, and that is why one proposed it. for what is a a practical scheme? a practical scheme is either a scheme that is already in existence, or a scheme that could be carried out under existing conditions, but it is exactly the existing conditions that one objects to; and any scheme that could accept these conditions is wrong and foolish. the conditions will be done away with, and human nature will change..’
