Perhaps the Cuban Revolution supports a different interpretation.
Before the revolution, Cuba was a tropical country like any other, ie, rich in food, where to eat was so easy that people could not develop overcoming difficulties, challenges, shortages that require them to physical and intellectual efforts (1).
As this abundance is harmful for the best growth of humans, there were people who accumulate large amounts of wealth because spontaneously, when we are too generous territory, a few removed excessive wealth and leave us with the minimum to have to work hard to survive. The rich are just that : that remove harmful human wealth, leaving most with the living conditions that would have in a territory whose shortcomings demanded these efforts we need to do to develop all our potentialities.
The traditional way to adapt to a rich territory generates strong social conflicts (between rich exploiters and exploited poor), the poor envy the rich collectors toxic excesses, and instead of fighting for what they need to engage in hate blinded.
Everything is conducive to the emergence of a change: the Cuban Revolution killed the rich, installed a government monopolized the role of extracting toxic wealth and organized life of the villagers to make everyone feel equal, without envy, with a strong state rich and administering these surplus resources, which were also removed from public access so that people could have the scarcity needed, but without alienating anyone, without suffering before felt envy toward wealthy exploiters.
This experiment could only be done on an island, where possible leakage control who did not want to endure the lack that would grow as individuals. Furthermore, it could only be done with Fidel Castro, whose charisma allowed to install this system that benefits humans. He nationalized the concentration of surplus wealth, toxic, abundance preventing them develop all their talents.
