The bottom line here is that nothing of value can be free unless everyone involved in producing the good or service worked for free. To keep those people viable, everyone supplying the goods and services they need would need to work for free. That would mean all of us would work for free. In that kind of system, everyone would be incented to do the minimum needed to get through each day.. It is reminiscent of the factory worker in the Soviet Union who told a Western reporter, "They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work." Seriously, the Pilgrims attempted to construct such a society. Half of them starved.
