The Book of the Month. "Merrie England" and Its Author
Regular Feature, Abstract
Invention, Commerce, Socialism
Explains that 'the capitalistic inventor [...] may be fairly said to make his fortune. But this "Nunquam" will not allow. No man has a right to what is not produced by his own unaided labour. The invention was not the product of the inventor's own unaided labour. It was the product or further development of the product of countless preceding workers' (77).
