Re: 7 problems...

If one is flawed, the whole plan's gone to shit, right?

Okay.

1. Wealth without work = massive inflation. $1,000,000/loaf of bread.

No, it means all has the same. Everyone has everything, thus no one can fight over anything. its also the only way to eliminate free choice without truely taking it away.

Josie dear, wealth without work isn't an example of utopian society. It's a roadblock to it. Wealth without knowledge exsists currently in our societies. Ghandi is saying that if you eliminated this, we'd be a step closer to utopia.

So while I agree that wealth without work would cause inflation, I can't see how stating this destroys the argument Ghandi made.

I misunderstood and am now too tired to wrap my brain around much (It's 7:15am and I'm still awake... and had quite a difficult time just getting myself to read what you said without my mind wandering off into the oblivion of dreamland). Sorry :(
