    money which represents their "wealth" is actually worthless.
    That's the lesson being taught by the workers at Walmart and on the Oakland docks. If the people who can don't work, then all the money in the world won't get anything done.

    We should perhaps revise that old saw from "people, who can, do; people, who can't, teach" (which is a slander to begin with) to read "people, who can, do; people, who can't, leach." And then we have to determine that the leaches are to be tightly controlled. Because, when you come right down to it, for people to be able to give (to practice their love and art), other people have to be willing to take. Otherwise, the surplus we produce ends up as waste. And we already have too much of that because the leachers are jealous and can never seem to get enough so they deprive others of even the left-overs.
    We are currently producing sufficient food stuffs to provide an adequate diet for nine billion people. Since we are only six billion plus and a goodly number of those are starving, there's obviously a lot going to waste. We used to scoff at the soviets for not being able to get the potatoes from the fields to the cities. What shall we do about tons and tons of food going into landfills?

    We organize governments to provide benefits and prevent abuse.
