When we were told that by freedom we understood free
enterprise, we did very little to dispel this monstrous falsehood.
Wealth and economic well-being, we have asserted, are the
fruits of freedom, while we should have been the first to know
that this kind of "happiness" has been an unmixed blessing only
in this country, and it is a minor blessing compared with the truly
political freedoms, such as freedom of speech and thought, of
assembly and association, even under the best conditions.
