I believe this is what happens when you disregard Christ's admonition to give onto Ceasar what belongs to Ceasar and give onto God what belongs to God. Socialists want to give everything onto Ceasar because they've mistaken him for God.
Communism replaced God with the state.
One does not need to be religious to understand why this analogy is correct. In fact, Randian atheists will see the point as clearly as conservative Christians.
