    Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.

    Plus i dont see how you can view a vast inequality as a "good thing"

    It was NEVER a genuine attempt at communism.

    It was top.down heirarchy with a facade of "communism".

    From the gate.

    I think what you ignore is that even if there is a problem, a government solution is worse
