ok - so say government were

ok - so say government were able to and did employ us sufficiently - enough people working at wages that are comfortable, secure... Why wouldn't that be ruined again - not that enough people were so taken care of the past 60,70 years... but just let's say that a recognizable measure of care of people had been being done, and is now done again. Why is it necessary within that new structure (unattainable in capitalism because it eliminates the army of the unemployed to do you know what) - why are we still to retain income levels, job prestige, 8 hour days - totally unnecessary - actually not possible in full employment - by full I mean full - the 2 year old and 90 year old being full members of society, doing an expected thing to participate in care? Why are we still to retain The Rich?
And what happens should these be coming to pass - ? You do know, it gets undermined again. Which is why we need that totalitarian system socialism communism - to keep our Owners from retaining their place, controlling production, controlling which institutions are made to retain our roles that fit THeir profiteering - like school ...
Implication that our work is to build the struggle for socialism communism is not useful. Explication - saying it out loud - in order to support our comrades in the struggle for the whole thing - is necessary.
