: How does a Communist get around that? Forget about the out and out alcoholic or junkie, what about the goldbrick? The professional office politico? If it is a system that dictates, it is the system that assumes responsibility of all half-loads.

Communists do not tolerate goldbricks, Frenchy.

Workers either work or starve---just like the ways things are HERE AND NOW in the capitalist society.

Work or starve---the same RIGHT.

Work or starve---the same FREEDOM.

The only difference in the socialist future: the workers will call the shots, not the capitalists.

People will have to work.

ALL the people.
