Socialism brings with it a false view of human nature. Marx assumed that capitalism created self-interest which in turn created greed which in turn created the urge to monopolize the market and concentrate wealth in the hands of a few. Marx, and Socialists, assume that if capitalism is removed or significantly controled then their real nature of egalitarianism will surface and they will work to capacity because they want to help their civilization. Well, frankly, that is just silly. Human nature is that without standards and mores, humans, in general, sink to the lowest common denominator. If it was otherwise, then Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Springer, and Maury Povich would never had succeeded. Marx was a moron about human nature.
