"from each according to ability" after all.

Anyone who can work is perfectly fine. They produce for the society and get back what they put in (under Socialism).

Anyone who can't work is provided for. The elderly, the sick, the handicapped, etc.

The Soviet bloc countries were then at war. How do Western capitalist countries especially America deal with handicapped especially Vietnam War veterans? They leave them out there to die in the cold and survive through pittance as beggars. At least the mentally ill in Soviet bloc countries are recipients of health care though 4th class kinds of food compared to appartchiks. Look how many mentally ill, lame and blind US citizens are teeming the sidewalks of New York. I did not see neither one in my visits to Moscow nor St. Petersburg.
