Too many takers and not enough makers will plunge society into ruin - Deepstash

Too many takers and not enough makers will plunge society into ruin

There are countries, groups, political parties that overtly despise wealth. In the process to destroy wealth creation, they drag everybody down to their level.

Groups that despise it will essentially bring the entire group to that level. If you get too many takers and not enough makers, society falls apart. You end up in a communist country.

Another way to think about it is to imagine an organism that has too many parasites. You need a small number of parasites to stay healthy.

Any organism can only withstand a small number of parasites. When the parasitic element gets out of control, you die.
