Comrade Steinbeck

“It always seemed strange to me … The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. Those traits we detest — sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism, and self-interest — are the traits of success. While men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.”

John Steinbeck
