    Monopoly was invented by socialists and then marketed by capitalists.

    The socialists did political commentary better.

    Socialists aren't noted for their marketing finesse.
    So that burden fell to the capitalists.

    Ah yes, the old capitalist burden of having to sell products other people made.

    A lot of these cards probably wouldn't even apply. Such as "Pay hospital $100" or "Doctor's fee pay $50," since healthcare would be free. No one would have to "Pay poor tax $15" because there wouldn't be any poor. Of course, the "Pay each player $50" card would still be in it, since the wealth must be shared.

    The history of the original game Monopoly is pretty interesting.
