Debunking the Norms
The more miserable people become, the larger the stake gets. If you need proof of this, just look at the story of socialism in Cuban and Venezuela. Just look at the story of Stalin and the rise of the modern Soviet Empire.
It really is quite depressing because there is one golden thread uniting all these supposed utopian projects. They are supposed to make people free. They are supposed to let people live up to their fullest potential, but the actual results are anything but free. They are all about oppression, thought control, and making people as miserable as possible.
