A Voice in the Wilderness.
"'Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.'" Luke 3:11b (NRSV)
John the Baptist recommended honesty in dealing with money (Luke 3:12-14) and communism in dealing with possessions.
This was practised by Jesus' disciples (Acts 2:44,45 & 4:32)
But you don't hear this preached in church very often.
It is indeed "'The voice of one crying out in the wilderness.'" Luke 3:4b (NRSV)
