”When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the LORD your God….”
— Leviticus 19:9-10
I know farmers that do this, I used to live in an area where fruit trees grew, on the road we lived, the trees on the edge by the road were always left for the neighbors and travelers to pick, and when my mom taught me how to make jam, we went to buy peaches from the neighbors stand, when he found out why, he refused to sell, but invited us to pick the freshly fallen fruit from his orchard, to take as much as we wanted by the bucket load so it was not wasted and make a mess he had to clean up, as he couldn’t sell the ground fallen fruit for health inspector reasons. We made loads and shared it with our neighbors.
Without capitalism, humans are naturally inclined to share with and care for others. There’s more than enough to go around as long as people aren’t greedy.
