    Carl Marks loved the idea of equality, a world where everyone had equal intelligence, equal education, equal wealth and in every aspect of competition including organized sports, everyone had an equal chance to win and no class was ever a permanent looser.

    So, Russian communism was when all the super-intelligent rich were either executed, terrorized into silence or exiled. When the uneducated laboring-class, the slow of thought lower-half of society, when any of them who refused to do all the manual labor drudgery without complain were shipped off to Siberia.

    And so, the pure, holy and privileged middle-class with their mediocre middle-speed minds, they achieved perfection in mutual gratification. For all the laws compelled everyone to give equal, to receive equal in return and the courts made sure that no one was in need of compassion, pity or charity and that no one had the slightest reason to feel grateful for a gift that they did not deserve.

    Truth is, we are all given a different level of intelligence so that the moral fabric of society may bond everyone together in system where everyone is essential, where everyone feels wanted, needed and things would not be the same without you. For love is compassion pity and charity flowing down to those less intelligent, grateful submission flowing up to those more intelligent and in a way that equal ownership of everything is achieved without the slightest force, where no government is ever allowed to have deadly force.
