The use of the word "create." In today's world, how many people actually create an object, a thing, themselves?

You are falling for the Labor Theory of Value fallacy.

Believing this fallacy is why the USSR remained poor and hungry.
* Farmers grew crops = good. They work & create food.
* Middlemen who just transported crops from the farmer to the city = bad. They created nothing and grew no crops.
* Solution: kill the greedy bloodsucking middlemen, since they create nothing, and insisted that they get paid for it.

* Outcome: crops rotted in the fields and people starved in the cities.
