author in TrekLit.
I do not believe you are a liar by any account--nor did I accuse you of being one. Furthermore, I did not accuse anyone

Nothing more...nothing less.
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
