Karl Popper Quotes: I Remained A Socialist For Several Years

I Remained A Socialist For Several Years, Even After My Rejection Of Marxism; And If There Could Be Such A Thing As Socialism Combined With Individual Liberty, I Would Be A Socialist Still. For Nothing Could Be Better Than Living A Modest, Simple, And Free Life In An Egalitarian Society. It Took Some Time Before I Recognized This As No More Than A Beautiful Dream; That Freedom Is More Important Than Equality; That The Attempt To Realize Equality Endangers Freedom; And That, If Freedom Is Lost, There Will Not Even Be Equality Among The Unfree.
— Karl Popper —
