I have read the first two chapters. The first chapter deals with the religious left.
The chapter talks about the debacle of religious attempts at communism. We get several
examples of failures including the pilgrims abolition of private ownership of property.
There are some interesting paragraphs about the Shaker movement.
Chapter Two deals largely with the failure of Robert Owen. Owen unlike Marx, placed his
ideas into action and formed a commune called New Harmony. It failed miserably an Owen
like Communists was authoritarian.
The communities in both chapters fall apart because lefties fail to understand human nature.
