Spontanious Communism

When I was maybe eight years old, I was with my father in a grocery store on Forest Park Drive  watching what he did - Pick out items, take them to the cashier, and pay. Outside as we approached the car, an 88 Oldsmobile, I asked him, "Daddy, instead of giving people money for things why can't they be free and then we they need something it will be free? It seemed to me that money was extra. That was around 1953 and anti-communism was the big thing. I wonder what my realtor father thought back then about his son espousing a fundamental Marxist principle - From each according to thier ability; to each according to their needs."
