Human Nature...the bug-a-boo that ruins the best of planning.
Consider the lofty ideals of Communism; Everyone working at what they are best at; everyone has what they need; everyone contented, and the whole thing is managed by a temporary government that ultimately melts away when all is OK.
There's just one flaw in all that - Human Nature. Greed is a biggie, desires for freedom and privacy, and the infinite variety of how we perceive our world. Some like this; Some like that.
Can you even imagine a government that will voluntarily fade away when no longer needed??
