The New York Times waddles in today with an obituary of Arnold Beichman, whose death was noted here back on February 17. The Times obit ends as follows:
Socialism is dictatorship, he told Columbia College Today, the alumni magazine, in 2005. "The control of wealth is the control over human life," he said. "So if a centrally planned economy decides how wealth is to be created and how it is to be distributed, then they really have a control over human life."
