Where's the incentive to produce more in a "classless" society?
I've heard many Marxists (not modern day liberals) say they want a "classless" society... Where is the incentive to work, if you can't enjoy the fruits of your labor? Why do you think businesses try to increase output? It's called money or aka making a profit. Where will the incentive be? How will the brilliant Marxists increase economic output, to ensure the standard of living increases for their people? How will a "classless society" exist, if those running the government will always make more than the average person? That would lead to a society with two classes: Dirt Poor and Government Elite. You tell me where you will find these angles and saints to organize society for you - i don't trust myself with that job. As some Marxists say "Communism is a classless society without a government" or in simple terms: it is classless anarchy. I'm not sure if that is communism, but i've seen some crazies say that. How is that even possible? Please explain... Do not divert off topic, stay with the questions. Best answer gets 10 points - best Marxist answer... don't avoid the question... you cannot answer it, don't try and be smart and reverse the debate...

Great point! I agree that when you take the incentive out of over achievement you essentially destroy the Country. Eventually even the wealthy elite realize without advancement the Country lays stagnant and even they lose over time. That is why China & Russia are now adopting Capitalism into their systems- they need... More
