: Plus any socialist, EG selfless, act I can think of is unrewarding, even disadvantaging in capitalist society, your actively punished for lack of conformity.
How? if you mean that someone who decides to be a street musician gets very little income then why would it be different under socialism? If people now think a street musician is worth a small amount of their resources (as measured in money) then why would that differ under socialism - people would still consider the same musician worth only a small proportion of their resources (this time measured in time, 'collective' interests or whatever - people wont suddenly change)
If you mean a person who gives everything they own (ie all their time and resource) to 'the poor' in a capitalist society might find himself unable to afford a meal, then why would that change in socialism? In either society keeping (or using) an amount for himself which is sufficient for his needs has the same effect on his ability to give to others (ie a decrease short term, increase long term). Whats the difference?
