Communism Isn 't always good, but it isn 't always bad either. Sure Stalin did kill millions of people but it gave the survivors better lives. I believe communism could change our nation for the better and should be instilled in the US instead of having Capitalism. In communism, money isn 't a factor to wealth because there isn 't any money “The Advantages of Communism are There is no gap between rich and poor” (Rud). Communism is a form of government in which the society wants a strong powerful leader to rise up and make decisions for them so they can worry about themselves: This is known as a Communist Dictatorship like they had in the USSR.
In communism, no matter how much effort someone puts into their job, everyone earns the same amount of salary. So, if someone put their heart and soul into a job, and another person did the minimal amount, both people would have the same salary and benefits. Therefore, what would be the point of even working? There would not be and, thus, the economy would be ruined. Also, in communism, everyone would supposedly be equal.
“If, in a state that lacked constitutional balance, one class or one interest gained control…. It would plunder all interests (Hofstadter 57).” This shows the fathers knew social classes had to stand for a reason. Without social classes the population would slowly turn into a communist government by demanding equal assets. The rich have to stay rich and the poor must stay poor, otherwise there may be an uprising. “....fearful the poor would plunder the rich… (they) admitted that the rich, unrestrained, would also plunder the poor (Hofstadter 57).” One class can not have too much power because it would lead to an anarchy.
For obvious reasons, Marx 's ideas were a threat to the power and money of the wealthy elite class and negotiates would need to be made so that the living conditions of such people could improve before any revolt began between the rich and the poor. Just as Marx had done, Freud proposed new theories change the way that people
Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned.There is a sense of hierarchy but Capitalism, unlike Communism has great morales. The harder you work, the higher you will get up in the ladder. Capitalism doesn’t offer free education, healthcare or jobs but it teaches us that everything comes with a price, unlike Communism who freely give away all those things. There is also more rights for the people because unlike Communism, Capitalism offers individuals to own and control land, capital, and production of industry. Individuals are also free to purchase and own their own homes, cars, furniture, and other goods such as TV, radios, computers, boats, or any thing else you might want.
The concept of communism sprung up during the age of the Enlightenment particularly in the form of French philosophies. In 1762 Jean-Jacques Rousseau published The Social Contract, which put forth the idea that collective rulership by the people was a superior form of government than entrusting one 's fate to a monarch. Essentially, Marx studied the works and writings of these socialist figures of the revolution, such as Etienne Cabet, Charles Fourier, and Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, and from that elicited a theory that he molded and shaped to near completion. A theory that shaped the forms of some governments today. Overall, Karl Marx was a very important man in our world’s history.
Socialism is a very broad term there are no 100% socialist countries but rather different socioeconomic systems with socialist undertones A common misconception is that there have been full communist countries but by definition complete communism is stateless therefore there is no such thing as a communist state, the two most common types democratic socialism which is typically a state-run welfare system on top of a capitalist economy and marxism-Leninism which focuses on the infallibility of its dictatorship government in claiming that what benefits the state benefits the people but in practice it has been used to lower the standard of living of the people for the good of the state people get the wrong idea about this because Socialist states are often controlled by a communist party but full communism has never been achieved and probably never will be because full communism is a utopia, nothing more than a part of Marxist theory. Socialism, on the other hand, is very much existent in all parts of the world and will likely continue to be practiced in many countries
The picture described seems to be wonderful as it meets the communism society that Karl Marx wants: “No private property or inherited wealth. Steeply graduated income tax. Centralized control of the banking, communication and transport industries. Free public education.” (1) This is completely different from the world that Karl Marx is most familiar with—the 19th century Europe, which was fulfilled with huge increases in industrial production and profits, stagnation of wages for workers, formation of a vast impoverished working class. Nevertheless, in my opinion, the given society is indeed not communism, hence Karl Marx would not get satisfied with it.
However, for Lenin the working class was incapable of achieving socialism and then communism without leaders. The transition from capitalist society, developing towards a communist society, is impossible without a ‘political transition period’ ” (6). We can see these stages that occur after capitalism: socialism and communism in Zamyatins’ We when D-503 refers to the ancient world. However, Lenin makes the observation that it is impossible to refer to the ancient contemporary world when factors are still brought up in the present “rationale” period. For Lenin the jump from capitalism to communism was effortless because they were essentially the same thing with different labels leading to the next idea of never ending revolutions: “The replacement of bourgeoisie by the proletariat is impossible without a revolution” (5).
Communist planned a unrestricted culture, deprived of order, deprived of money, deprived of private possessions, where people would toil in coordination, decide their difficulties in approachable considerations, harvest enough merchandises and facilities, and where each would donate depending on his capabilities and obtain depending on his needs(Kowalczyk, 2015). It is owned by the government and shared by the people. Socialism perceives individuals l having their individual possessions but all industrial and production capability would be jointly possessed and accomplished by consent or
Communism is a system that shows that it doesn 't matter how hard or how little every person works, every citizen of United States will get the same amount of wealth and goods, no mater how much they work. People won’t receive what they work for, that kills me. Communism doesn 't value creativity, through the jobs that are based on creativity, such as an artist, sculptor, etc., the idea of Communism looks at those jobs as unnecessary and ridiculous. What would the
Woodrow Wilson conflicts were political rhetoric and economic necessity. He wanted to make the economy advance for society. Wilson job was to expend wealth to share it to the new people being available in the system like, slaves, women, and immigrants. His political impact was to share the wealth for all social classes. Therefore, America started to globalized to expend and explore those before them, to optimize wealth and to show the rest of the world that the American Dream could be obtainable, because after banks, companies and families being in economy crisis, people around the world started to disbelieve in the American Dream.
The economy changed as well, due to the revolution, because of the war period there was respect for debt, taxes and agriculture. The direction for the development of economic growth was still a quarrel between the North and the South. A good example for the Northern view point on economic growth is Alexander Hamilton. Alexander advocated for the development of an economy based on industry with a central focus on urban growth. However, Anti-Federalists or, the Southern viewpoint, thought it best to have an agrarian society that contained large slave populations.
He believed that it was not the place of the federal government to tell companies how much they should pay their workers. Along with this, Reagan thought that companies would naturally raise their wages in order to keep their employees from going to other employers with higher wages. Competition between corporations would cause the salary of civilians to go up and the minimum wage would be irrelevant. Theoretically, this may work, but it failed and not create a safety net for citizens. Some workers would have no choice but to work minimum wage and this amount of money is barely possible, if not impossible, to live on.
Bill Quigley’s Top Ten Arguments for Raising the Minimum Wage argues that since the impact is so negligible there should be no reason businesses can’t afford it. He also addresses the “free market” system stating it will not take care of the workers. He points out the special tax breaks for businesses and states that this is nothing compared to raising wages, but this has yet to be done. Overall they seem to all agree that the workforce should be paid more, but do not agree how this should be enforced or even encouraged. Quigley very clearly believes in a minimum wage hike, stating that businesses will not take care of the people.
