Forgive me for barging in like this but to me, what your sentence
describes is just plain good old greedy people. Patents provided
the perfect LEGAL way for these very people to make theirs, an idea that
they didn't think of or had the gift/talent to create, as a quickie
for profit. The result: Now the long patent arm reaches fruit, seeds
and DNA. This means that I can't "create" a Graviola juice drink (local
Brazilian fruit) because a Japanese guy patented the fruit !! How
ridiculous did we allowed this to get?

On a final note, if your sentence were to reflect a little better the
idea of socialism (at least on paper), it should read:

"The socialists still feel that everybody is entitled to something
for nothing."

Unfortunately today, socialism, democracy, communism or liberalism are
mere skins for hungry wolves.
