Once upon a time a man rose to be the leader of his country. It was achieved by a revolution of the masses who accepted the new order of everyone being equal. The new leader executed millions of people that opposed the new philosophy of equality for all. He killed the opposing political leaders, the wealthy and the landowners. He was hailed for creating the new order. Businesses, farms, universities, professions, factories, housing and all other activity came under the ruler and his appointed committees. The rest of the world was in awe. The masses owned and controlled all segments of the society. There were no rich and no poor, only equals.
In the adjacent land the masses wanted to achieve the same kind of wealth. They followed a new leader and revolted. The old government fell. Committees were formed to reconstruct their society of equals, as there neighbors had done. Gone were the millionaires, the landowners and the money lenders. All were equals, no rich and no poor.
