If I was a hunter, (which I'm not - I couldn't kill a fuckin fly) I would hunt until I had caught three ducks. and I would distribute them as follows :
1. I would keep one for myself and to share with my family. Afterall I had done the hard work.
2. I would give the second one to someone who desperately needed it.
3. I would sell the last to the landowner.(I know there is an arguement that there should't be landlords, and I have sympathy with that idea, but I look at it this way).
I will sell the duck for 2 equal amounts keeping my share then pass a share to the person that desperately needs it. The result is that my comrade who needed help is now equal to me. He has food and money. While over time, if the fat cat (who's just sitting on his arse doing nothing) keeps paying for his/her food will one day run out of money and be force to go out hunting like my myself and my comrade. Therefore he or she would become equal to.
I suppose the moral of the story is don't underestimate your power as a hunter and worker. If you really want an equal world then the ball is in the workers court.
It doesn't matter how long it takes but it can happen if you want it to.
The flaw in your logic and the underling Communist argument you presented is this.
Human nature......Those who can will. If you can hunt you will. If your comrade can get you to hunt for him he will. If the land owner can profit from you he will.
If you continue to hunt and provide your comrade with food he has no incentive to hunt for him self and as you sell your duck to the land owner he will keep what he needs and sell the rest at a profit making you little more than a share cropper or slave. The land owner profits by your labor and your comrade can slide by with the hand out.
Now you can change this to a point.
If you teach your comrade to hunt and provide for himself. Then you and he can hunt and proved for your selves and if you like sell your excess. As time goes by you meet the land owner in the middle. No class war and no slacking comrades.
The reason that Communism failed in the Solvent republic was APATHY. If I make ten a day and get 5 rubles and you make 1 a day and get 5 rubles what is my incentive to make more than the 1. slowly over time the system broke down there were shops with hundreds of umbrellas and no bread. The workers had no incentive to farm or turn what little food they had into bread. This is the fundamental flaw of communism. If you want to change the world rise up don't try and drag down.
