See, there's this thing called biology...

Growing up in the 60’s-70’s in a world of communes and cults, I got to observe several social experiments. It was an idealistic time and people were wanting to try new things, to engineer a new and improved version of pretty much everything. Karl Marx was a favorite, each according to his ability, to each according to his need. It’s a deceptively lovely ideal that conjures up visions of equality and fairness, everyone taken care of, the pie divided up fairly so no-one is ever left out.

It practice however, it is an utter failure. Socialism completely dismisses human nature, disregards psychology and biology, denies our intrinsic power plays, and delivers the exact opposite of fair and equal. Rather than unicorns and rainbow skittles, you eventually get gray uniforms and long bread lines. I suppose everybody starving together is a form of equality, it’s just not a particularly desirable one.
