Along with a 2 hour course (plus) for the police on how to apply courtesy to their interactions with citizens. I live in a very homogeneous and crime free area and it is amazing how rude (some of) the police are. There's no requirement in the police/public dynamic that the public should simply roll over and accept abusive behavior from public servants.

Sure it could work, as long as you have a box that can turn energy into any physical good you like. Since there is only one real commodity, the system doesn't have to deal with different preferences, even time preferences. (They did have energy usage rations). Without that equalizer, different preferences and relative scarcity will produce 'money' in one form or another.

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
