Oscar Wilde on disobedience and socialism

His The Soul of Man under Socialism has this fine observation: "Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion."

Anyone who likes Wilde should read that essay. Or who likes socialism or anarchism. Or who likes good writing.
