Allocation of resources will never be equal because people will never be equal.

Allocation of resources implies what we do with our resources to produce more. It's very simple. It has nothing to do with being "equal" as I pointed out earlier there is no equality in the world and there never has been.

This isn't about communism or capitalism......this is about greed and how primitive we humans are in the bigger picture. 100 years from now, we will look back to see how backwards we are as a society.
The firm's revenues were $28.57bn, up 90% year-on-year, and profits $7.31bn, up 124%, as it sold 20.34m iPhones – more than double the number sold last year, ahead of the release of the iPhone 4 – and 9.25m iPads, almost triple the number sold during its debut quarter in 2010. "We're thrilled to deliver our best quarter ever," said Apple's chief executive, Steve Jobs, on Tuesday.
Of course Steve is thrilled, filthy rich off the backs of desperate people happy to work for next to nothing as a better alternative to starving in a system that has made resources artificially scarce.
Capitalists would rather see you starve for lack of employment, than take a reduction in their profits. Profits are more important than people. How can anyone support such a system?
