If Govt redistributed wealth in US exactly equal to all, WHY would this be bad?
People would still work and do what they do now, but not for a paycheck, for the greater good of their brothers and sisters. Then ALLLLLLLLL this money that Corporations make and investment bankers make and entreprenuers make...... would be used for the greater good of all humanity..... this would excite investment bankers and heads of corporations to be more productive than ever because they will feel good ALLLL that earned money will go towards the benefit of all society....and then the economy will go up very high Also I like the idea of land sharing..... If all the land you own and I own and all the farmland becomes shared common property of everybody, then there would be a Great Leap Forward in America as people would come together for the common good and grow all kinds of foods and collectively build their lands as one and share all houses together

The Soviet Union, North Korea, & Cuba was or still is under this concept. In land sharing nobody takes care of the land & the rightful owner looses part of his/her land to squatters or land poacher that gained favor from the government to divi up the land in favor of his/her family, relatives or clan much like how...

your idea would work if everybody worked....half the country will always try to reap rewards without making any contributions....

Oh yes, everyone would still work for the good of everyone else - because we have SOOOOOOOO many people like that out there

There's not enough patience in me to explain something I doubt you'll understand to begin with. Nevermind. But just leave quietly with the thought in mind that you don't grasp concepts well or understand future consequences of current actions too well - and that you're a tragic person & horrifically wrong.

Because Americans have been brainswashed in to believing that social programs (or anything with SOCIAL) is bad. Greed, lots of selfishness , instant gratificatiom and simple stupidity reigns in the usa
Answered By: unicorn of 911 - 8/13/2011
d**n, you must not have ever earned a decent days pay in exchange for a hard days work. Most of the people I have worked with don't deserve an equal share.

I bet the crack addict with no job likes that idea too. And the homeless drunk who chugs a bottle every four hours. And the irresponsible woman with no husband or job, who popped out 5 kids from 4 different men. I bet they all love that idea.

Answered By: Lady Snowblossom - 8/13/2011
no, you would have people that would not work and would still get their share, others would see that and stop working and sooner or later everyone would stop working because they are tired of supporting the ones that wont work.

The welfare bums would be back on welfare in exactly 3 weeks. Yeah, great liberal idea. Pity that it's typically stupid and narrow minded.

Now, if only we could brainwash the entire world population to think like you, our problems would be solved. But, we would also need to alter our primitive DNA, which compels us as individuals to hoard in preparation for a "rainy day", which is inherit to self survival AND survival of our species.

Communism has never worked and will never work. It can only work if you control everybody's mind to think exactly the same. True Communism is not control of goods, services and money - it is total mind control.

You're either joking or hopelessly brainwashed. Government control of all the land is a goal of UN Agenda 21. Let me guess, you don't own any land, and you work at WalMart.
