“I want all to have a share of everything and all property to be in common; there will no longer be either rich or poor; no longer shall we see one man harvesting vast tracts of land, while another has not ground enough to be buried in…I intend that there shall only be one and the same condition of life for all.” (Aristophanes, who put this line into the mouth of one of his female characters as a way of satirizing the communists of his day. 390 B.C  The Ecclesiazusae)
