A fatal flaw perhaps?

We should try to remember...

...that the flaw in all social programs such as this is the rule of enforcement. In the utopian communist view all members of society would conform freely in a democractic way. Right?

But, how do you create a society without overthrowing democratic principles? How do you re-distribute land and wealth without stealing it forcibly from its owners?

Just food for thought- personally, I think this is ample proof for the need of extensive discussion on the socialist stage of revolution.
