One problem with all governments is even if everyone is equal and it's all working fine. Here's the problem. Evil people start to group up with each
other to take from everyone else. Food/money/property. So to combat this, good people have to group up also to fight back.
So then the bad groups group into an even bigger group, and so now the good guys have to have a bigger group to combat that group and so on.
Over time you end up with a centralized government from all the groups grouping up. To fight things like organized crime you get things like the FBI.
See where this is going?
After time, the government becomes corrupt and turns evil too because their group gets too big. Now you have to revolt because big nasty oligarchs go
insane with power. They do what they do simply because they have the ability to do so. Where if you didn't have a big centralized behemoth it wouldn't
have the authority or power to be corrupt. But absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Then, after the revolt, the problem starts over. Now the governments gone and there's no one to keep law and order. So what happens? Bad guys start to
group up. Better elect a sheriff! Oh there's lots of bad people! Better deputize some deputies! Here we are grouping up again. Next thing you know,
you've went and got yourself a government again.
This cycle is what screws up everything. Obviously I'm simplifying, but that's really the heart of it all. What I'm saying is that even in an ideal
perfect communist country, it wouldn't stay true communism for long. If the system could be taken advantage of, evil people would find a way to group
up and take advantage of it. That's what they've always done in every system.
In an ideal world you wouldn't need a government at all. People would just do their own thing and mind their own business. And if they did work with
each other it'd be in a productive, friendly, or scientific manner.
But evil people like to work together. So good people HAVE to work together and continually combat them. That's just the way it is. That's why this
website is here really if you think about it.
