Aristophanes Quote

Praxagora: I want all to have a share of everything and all property to be in common; there will no longer be either rich or poor; [...] I shall begin by making land, money, everything that is private property, common to all. [...]
Blepyrus: But who will till the soil?
Praxagora: The slaves.


Ecclesiazusae, line 590-591 & 597-598 & 651 - Ecclesiazusae (392 BC) [tr. O'Neill 1938, Perseus]
