In case you have not noticed, the state is not an entity separate from
its citizens.  And money is not an entity separate from available goods.
Where is the point in letting the state's citizens continue to work in
order to gain access to something that has been finished generations ago
and could simply be copied instead?  Where is the point?  Some people
seem to think that the purpose of capitalism is to make money go round.
But the purpose is to make goods get to the place where they are called
for.  And the purpose of culture is to spread, not limit knowledge and
art.
