What a pity Bellamy has not lived longer! He would have produced other excellent books. I am positive that were Bellamy to have met an Anarchist who could have explained to him our ideal, he would have accepted it. The authoritarianism which he introduced to his Utopia was useless there and contradictory to the system. It was simply a survival, a concession, a tribute to the past.
