Socialism vs the family

Stephen sends along the following aphorism of Nicholas Gomez Davila:

“Instead of paternalism, socialism favors the discipline of an orphanage.”

which reminded me of Aristotle’s response to Plato’s Republic:

“…how much better is it to be the real cousin of somebody than to be a son after Plato’s fashion!”
