So, when's the first Communist meeting all?
It was Lenin's opinion that the bourgeoisie (middle class) did no work.

Consider the entire chapter (2 Thessalonians 3) to get the context. Paul is trying to set an example. Gods plan is to provide for our needs through our work. This is part of Gods character, because God is always at work, taking time to rest only after the work is completed. A person who is lazy and without purpose is easily seduced by Satan. That's why it's important to avoid such people and those who enable them.
