How does socialism breed communism? Well, once the government is in charge of redistributing wealth, it becomes increasingly picky about just who can have any. Party officials, whose work is paramount to the continued operations of the state, have little to worry about. You, on the other hand, will have to work harder and get by on less once the government controls the coveted means of production. Did you think all those evil millionaires would stick around to volunteer their services? No, they’re now residing in other countries (or serving their country as party officials).
Somehow replacing all the people who create wealth with inexperienced bureaucrats manages to dampen an economy. Thus rendered unproductive, a socialist government must hound down more wealth in the only place it can find any: you. Your money may not be confiscated outright, but rising taxes will do the job well enough. Your property taxes may increase to a point where renting a room in a state-owned housing complex becomes more affordable. Or your land may just become government property. What right have you really got to own it anyway? Aren’t you aware that others are worse off than you?
And whatever you do, do not criticize this new state of affairs. There won’t be a crumb in store for anyone who opposes the march to utopia.

NEW DESIGN: Water: Nietzsche Approved
The modern world supplies us with endless sources of grief and misery. That’s why we need Friedrich Nietzsche now more than ever. So long as they can be persuaded to forego aimless distractions from their problems, anyone has enough inner turmoil to become a true Übermensch.
A state, is called the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly lieth it also; and this lie creepeth from its mouth: “I, the state, am the people.” It is a lie! Creators were they who created peoples, and hung a faith and a love over them: thus they served life. Destroyers, are they who lay snares for many, and call it the state: they hang a sword and a hundred cravings over them. – Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
