Abstract

If there are any valid objections to Marxism, one of the very few is that humans may be by nature too selfish and greedy for a communist system to work. In Walden Two, B.F. Skinner argued that human nature itself could be changed by a judicious use of the fruits of human psychological knowledge. Real societies, though, have not fared so well in their attempts to create a "new man." In fact, their efforts have for the most part had disastrous consequences for the very humans they sought to transform quickly and save.
