"[snip] A boss is a boss, a worker is a worker, it doesn't matter what fancy names you give them. Many will want to be bosses, but only a few have the credentials. Many don't want to be workers, but their credentials suit them for nothing else, and therein lies the major problem with that magical social system called communism. You need humans without human nature for it to work.
Perhaps he was not arguing about the division of labour between the bosses and the workers, but the distribution of wealth between the bosses and the workers. We're seeing a return of the gap between the wealthy and the rest of us akin to that of the Victorian age or even further back to the divine rule of kings and serfdom. It is that division that ferments revolution. The obscene wealth of the billionaires and oligarchs, their deliberate flaunting of that wealth, then selling the dream of attaining it, which is entirely impossible, through gambling, or other means can only go on so long before there will be a need for radical change. In America right now you can see the elite deliberately targeting healthcare and education for everyone except the wealthy, the poorest in society just cast aside. The definition of who is poor moves all the time, and the former working classes are now caught up, the middle classes already feeling the squeeze. As a collective we're managed by fear via the media, fear of the unknown, fear of immigrants, fear of different religions, races, etc. The actual threats are mostly non-existent, but the fear of them is palpable. I hope the rabid nature of the collapse of democracy in America doesn't spread here too quickly, not until I'm safely dead at least."
If we want a society that is more fair all round, then get rid of stocks and shares, and limit the size of companies. Capitalism with a large C is the single most divisive thing on this earth. With a small C its the only way of financing societies. It would also manage wealth, taking it out of the hands of the very few and distributing it across a much broader base.
