Human nature.
Well, it won't work in a monetary system I agree.. The reason is not human nature though.

As for a truly voluntary system without the use of money.. That hasn't been tried on a large scale.. It seems to work well with the communities that have it in place.

There's a community in Russia with a few thousand in a voluntary system.. Seems to work pretty well, although the inhabitants are a little crazy.... They believe a guy who lives there is the reincarnation of Jesus.
