Along with a truly communist world come people who truly believe in being
good to one another and putting in the work that they can to better all
society. I'm a fan of the utopia such utter goodness could create, but
acutely aware of how it's not possible in the real world. Other models
that take into account human stupidity etc. will be necessary.
I can dream. :)
