Communism doesn't work as history as proven.
Your statements can be batted back quite simply;

1) The majority will not work as hard as they could as there is no incentive. This means economic inefficiency.
2) People could instead follow their hearts and do the jobs that they wish to; as nice as this sounds, it means that certain jobs will not be done.
3) Some, more will work with an incentive.
Who said communism?

1) you are assuming that money is the only possible insensitive.
2) you mean the jobs that people are paid to do due to others laziness?
3) see 1.

You implied it with the 'rapid wing to the left'.

1) It is an incentive that civilisation has been used to for thousands of years. Do you intend to lure people into working with biscuits?
2) Often not.

I'm very much looking forward to reading over the manifestos, I must say! Given the quality of debate here, I think they will be quite something!

I think that many people would work harder if they worked for love over money.

I'm really rather nervous. First manifesto I have written. I hope that I haven't made some terrible blunder...

But yes, I am looking forward to reading the other manifestos!

Love doesn't buy you shelter, water or food.

I am sure they would, and its a highly romantic conception of the world, however, we have reached a point where that is not an option.

I'll make sure it is paid for... Or at least that it goes on someone's expenses...

All you need is :love:... and enough money/resources to live a decent life.

I'm sure it will be very good, but I'm afraid that I will almost certainly disagree with it. But I stand for democracy and shall therefore give it a fair read

Growing inequality...
either there will be a rapid swing to the left, the expanding of UN powers or violent protest.
Inequality has grown for the last 30 years, that does not render a swing to the left inevitable if we can ensure rising real incomes.

It is not in our self interest to hand power to the UN.

Violent protests would be clamped down.

No, it's never too late to turn back and have a new start.
