How does one go about ridding society of its obvious evils, that
is, the great contrasts between rich and poor, the privileged and the
deprived and even the healthy and the sick? By the late nineteenth
century a wide spectrum of European, and indeed world, thought had come
to identify these evils with the capitalist mode of production, a
tribute certainly to the analysis of society provided by Marx and
Engels, but, more than that, an admission that if the capitalist mode of
production could be overthrown and replaced by a new social order in
which the worker no longer had seized from him the products of his
labour by exploiters, there would be sufficient of the better things of
life for all men.Men would become equal and even the division into
healthy and sick might be to a large extent eliminated, for so many
health problems were attributed to the squalid conditions in which the
poor lived and their inability to afford medical care.
