But on larger scales? I don’t know. I’d like it to be possible, if that counts for something.

Attempts have been made; I don’t know of successes. Then again, through systems of taxation _some of this_ is true, especially in areas of high taxation; taxes are automatic and take care of basic needs.

But they still depend on individual contributions into the system as far as I know.

For such a system to work, it would require income to be handled solely by the State. Would its citizens be satisfied? That’s where it gets rough.

Small scale levels happen; intentional communities of various kinds and such have done it; I use monasteries as a strong example of this type of thing as they’re the most well known of the Epicurian friendship communities, which can include shared “family style” expenses.

But on larger scales? I don’t know. I’d like it to be possible, if that counts for something.
