Trouble with the plan is that eventually the State takes so much that those with ability decide there is no point in making things and that they may as well just take like the others. They decide I will only make enough to satisfy the overlords. It makes no difference how much I produce I earn no more. Why should I work harder than my neighbor if it does not profit it me.
If there is no profit in work, work becomes self defeating. If no one works eventually everyone dies. This is why communist states must be prison states. People must be forced to remain there because everyone not in the leadership knows that death surrounds them.
“Who is John Galt?”
You are correct.
Marxists believe they can be gods, nay, they Should be gods.
The final version can be written:
The State giveth, The State taketh away.
“The State” has replaced “The Lord.”
