However, the researchers found that how students divided up money changed as they became older when it was earned and depended on individual achievements and luck. Most fifth graders (63 percent) remained strict egalitarians, dividing up the money equally, despite the fact that some players earned more money through individual achievement. However, the portion of egalitarians dropped to 40 percent by 7th grade; falling eventually to 22 percent by 13th grade. Conversely, the share of meritocrats rose from 5 percent in the fifth grade, to 22 percent in 7th grade, rising eventually to 42 percent in the 13th grade. A full 42 percent of players in the 13th grade kept more money for themselves because they believed that they have earned it. The authors of the Norwegian study conclude that the meritocratic fairness view increases as the cognitive abilities of children mature. In other words: yes, kids outgrow socialism.

So, apparently, as with most subjects, we can identify "adult" thinking about fairness by its greater nuance and complexity. It certainly explains why stronger forms of socialism have never prospered in well-educated societies.

I like capitalism, but I think it's kinda flawed. If they did this in Soviet Russia, then I'd be more willing to put more weight on it.

The people of Soviet Russia voted pretty conclusively when they overthrew the Communist government in 1991.
