To whom should we attribute this quote?

John of Argghhh! briefed on May 7, 2004 05:20 AM

Putatively, Winston Churchill. But I haven't tracked that to an authoritative source.

This version sound fancier:
"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of misery."
- Winston Churchill

Churchill must have had a way too rosy picture of socialism. Real socialism means unequal sharing of misery.
