"...and how workers grew lazy since all workers recieved the same amount of food in spite of how hard each member worked."
What's wrong with laziness? I'm for the greatest laziness for the greatest number. (Thank goodness for the 8 hour day. Now let's make it 6)
ps - If I WANT to raise monuments to "Progress" (and I'm certainly not against the notion) I would not consider it Work, (at least in any conventional sense).
