Re: Just what AT&T needs

Socialism or communism only works in very, very small groups and those who advocate it always tend to ignore the human condition.
I once had a guy who emigrated from a socialist state working under me.
He did as little as possible. I called him on it one day.. his reply...'they pretend to pay me, I pretend to work'....
I have zero reason to 'work' if I get exactly the person beside me gets by producing less. Human nature.
The only reason the former Soviet Union had any scientific advances at all was because the created a priviledged class of scientists, otherwise they had no reason to excell.
