(: In my world every person would be rewarded based on their productivity. This is a "sort" of "Communistic" view of the world. That is to say it is class-less because an industrious garbage collector could earn as much as a lazy judge, thus "earning" enough to live beside a corporate ceo! No on has a "tap" into the "wealth" pipeline. Only PRODUCTIVITY is regaled")

Isn't "productivity" subjective? I think this is the ultimate failure of socialistic tendencies; that there is a supposed consensus on what it means to be productive. Would you reward productive thieves? How about non-productive thieves. There would have to be global acceptance of a particular definition of productivity; which will never happen.
