Your analysis is inherently flawed in the sense that you expect some folks to work harder than others. This breakdown that your are discussing is
hypothetical an would not take place in at truly well organized and well operated socialist economy.
The flaw is not the O.P.'s it is yours. Some people do work harder than others, this is so now, and this has been so since time immemorial, and the
best you can offer to declare the O.P.'s argument a "flaw" is by calling it a hypothetical and then rich with irony turn around and offer up your
own hypothetical. In this hypothetical you offer up no reasonable argument as to how the hypothetical "well operated socialist economy" would
overcome the fact that some people do work harder than others, but merely ask us to accept that you are correct.
The Peter Principle states that people rise to a level of incompetency, meaning that people given more and more authority will eventually be given
more authority than they can handle. This is why later in your argument you make the point that if everyone is not "doing their fair share" the
system would fall apart, and it will fall apart under your paradigm because "doing their fair share" will include be given more authority than they
Your pipe dream of hybrid complexities are the same sort of pipe dreams that people have advocated for centuries, all of them leading to closed
systems, and it is demonstrably so that all closed systems tend towards entropy.
Imposed complexities is a foolish paradigm as complexities will arise with or without any imposition of them. The freer the market the more open the
market the less tendency towards entropy.
