In socialist countries, laborers were forced to work hard, but could own no possessions. The government took them all away.
People with no possessions have nothing with which to be charitable.
Socialists believe that when the government finally finishes taking away everyone's possessions, then the world will arrive at a imagined ideal utopia called communism.
The term “communism” comes from the Latin word “communis,” meaning everything held in common.
There will be no private ownership of anything. There will be no privacy. People will not even have control over their own children.
The government will control everything, on both production side and consumption side.
In 1971, John Lennon and his second wife, Yoko Ono, co-wrote the song "Imagine," with socialist-themed lyrics: "Imagine no possessions ... And no religion too."
Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum stated that by 2030 "You will own nothing but be happy."
