Letter — Fairness and equality evil?

To the Editor:

One of the reasons that our military is physically incapable of ruling the country by force is that the means of production is privately controlled. Communists cannot stand this. That is why they preach the evils of capitalism. To them any investment that reaps a profit is crooked. They discourage individual initiative and personal responsibility.

They favor government control of the wealth and the means of production. They favor any policy that are steps toward government control, whether it is an environmental law, a civil rights law or a labor law. They do so in the name of fairness or equality, while their real intentions are truly evil.
