Socialism in action.
Yep. Reminds me of the old Cold War joke. An East German is stopped at the border with a wheelbarrow full of sand. The border guard stabs it with his bayonet repeatedly, sifts it, finds nothing, lets the guy pass. Next day he appears with a wheelbarrow full of straw. Same thing with the bayonet and the suspicion. Next day it's a wheelbarrow full of gravel.
This goes on for months. Finally on the guard's last day on the job he stops the guy and says "Comrade, today I retire, but before I go I have only one question. I know you were smuggling even if I never caught you. Tell me, what were you smuggling?"
"Wheelbarrows," came the reply.
