Matthew Smith

"There is not enough land. True communists are people who live in communes, villages, tribes. I'd like to live like that, but always with the communications we've got. There should be an end to cities. Cities should have walls around them to keep the city in." -- Matthew Smith, Sinclair User, December 1984.
