Spawned by Anson's love for communism, here are my thoughts in a simple analogy that I think everyone can relate to.
You have a group project and meet twice a week for three months to discuss the overall project and give input on group members individual responsibilities. One guy (let's call him Joe) in the group shows up to a total of two meetings, but did everything he was responsible for. When completed, the project is an A except for the parts completed by Joe, which got a B. The over all project mark is an A-. Is it fair for Joe to receive the same A- as everyone else in the group?
The same project as above, but one or two guys in the group do all the work and won't let anyone help, give any input or even listen to their ideas. Is it fair for the the guys who did all the work to get an A and for the rest of the group to get a C?
Communism can suck my balls. The american dream can suck my balls. And while we're at it, dictatorships can suck my balls and democracies can suck my balls.
