Let’s have a look at how this subject is handled in the various systems:
Capitalism: The government will send Fernando a check every month along with a card to purchase his Twinkies and beer. The money is generated as the government implies heavy taxes on the working class, people who cannot even afford this shit themselves, and the IRS will go to extreme measures in order to obtain this money. A certain portion of the population, roughly 1-2% have more wealth than the working class combined and they do not contribute at all. Instead, they make charitable donations to television stations to run advertisements declaring that this lifestyle is a representation of freedom. Furthermore, they may eventually grow tired of Fernando smoking marijuana in his own home, and will have their little cronies known as the police come over and place Fernando in a prison for a victimless violation…the prison is also funded by the workers.
Socialist A: Recognizing that Fernando is a lazy piece of shit, the people no longer give Fernando anything. He is evicted from his home, given zero handouts, and basically forgotten about until he gets a job.
Socialist B (under “forced labor”): The people discover that Fernando is receiving equal benefits despite the fact he does nothing but sit on his lazy ass all God damn day smoking weed and playing video games. Finding this deplorable act of inhumanity inexcusable for the well-being of society, the agency assigns Fernando to work as a dishwasher in a nursing home. For his work as a dishwasher, he now receives equal benefits as the rest of society. Fernando has a home, a gas grill, many of the video games he loves, a computer with High Speed Internet, reliable transportation, two weeks’ vacation annually, health care, and even some say as what ingredients should go into Twinkies. (Unfortunately, the committee voted against him, and even in this “ideal” Socialist society, the cream filling will not, sadly, be replaced with Pabst Blue Ribbon.) In some areas, Fernando may be fined $25 or so for using marijuana.
True Communist State: The people have recognized Fernando’s condition. After careful review, Fernando is given more marijuana for free. He has been assigned a year of secondary education in which he studies programming, graphic design, and even courteous customer service. Tuition is free because money no longer exists. Fernando now works as a computer engineer designing video games specifically to be enjoyed while stoned on weed, because pot is now legal too. His compensation is exactly that of the person who assigned him to the school for they are all equal. He has a home, electricity, and even an individualized aircraft that does not run off gasoline because the world is no longer committed to profiteering.
