    Oh, I'd oppose it, violence is not the way to go, but I wouldn't go out and fight against them.

    How would producing that much be an issue when everything is distributed based on it's use value? Communism is built around sufficiently using a surplus, which we have, and food storage is making great strides, how would quality suffer? The food quality now is OBVIOUSLY great.

    what's the incentive to produce beyond what you need to survive?
    Why wouldn't you? Don't like having extra food to eat?

    Why would I produce more than I need when I get nothing more from it? There is literally no reason to create any sort of surplus when there is nothing to gain from it. The quality of what is produced would decline for the very same reason that neglect is a hallmark of collectively owned property. No one cares enough to bother to make good quality products.

    of course, enforcement has to be rigorous and sustained, which necessitates an well armed authority and the complete and utter absence of justice.

    this makes no sense .
    Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government

    THE
    second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

    Singapore has 5.5 million people, and if that's your only example, then that's embarrassing, considering all of the capitalist countries without regulations that **** everyone.

    If people were having an actual violent revolution against the state, I wouldn't try to stop them.

    You keep assuming to know about these societies where workers actually collectively owned, not the state. I need to see one.

    The system can work without 100% compliance, you're referring to stalin's method.
