Abstract

With much that Mr. Kaminsky says about "Freedom under Socialism" we are in full agreement. It is clear that a collectivist society makes severe demands on the individual in the interests of the proper functioning and healthy development of the social organism as a whole. These demands are not contrary to the true interests of the individual; in fact, the person who recognizes that the individual can develop and blossom only as a part of a vigorous and harmonious society will gladly accept the obligations and duties of collectivism and will find freedom in the increasing fulfillment of the human desires and aspirations of himself and those around him.
