"Economic equality is socialism, that is to say, a system by which a decent livelihood is secured for all. This does not mean identical wages for one and all, but it does mean sufficient subsistence for one and all to enjoy the inalienable right to the pursuit of happiness. In short, socialism is a society where some have more, some have less, but there are no have nots, a system that could be called nonegalitarian equality. That is the society Marx predicted would follow capitalism because capitalism was not and is not capable of creating a 'decent livelihood' for all. Capitalism gives neither political nor economic equality to the people. The number of have-nots in all capitalist societies is quite high -- and these are both economic and political have-nots."
I think this is a decent quote dispelling some liberal myths.
