@Lark do you think a society modeled after your vision can successfully compete with a capitalist system? I think they'd be at a severe disadvantage because greed is a great motivator and those who own property have a higher stake in succeeding than those who don't. Finally, who'd be in charge of collecting the pot and redistributing it? Concentrate wealth and power and you get lots of corruption.
