Carnival of the Vanities

The Carnival of the Vanities is up at Humantide. In this “Froth Edition”, Leon Trotsky’s portrait of a communist America, where “the dead hands of private property” would be “lifted from [the] industrial system” and “genuine scientific methods” would be applied “to the problem of eugenics” yielding “a new breed of men–the first worthy of the name of Man”, is pulled from the ash heap of history to provide a contrast to my own vision of a free and healthy America.
