Additionally, he alleged that a social contract is one that the people of a given society have with their past. Thus, Burke responded to inequality by stating only some people should participate in politics, while others who were adamant for universal suffrage, should not. This belief stemmed from the understanding that only citizens who could set aside time to contribute in politics could. He felt this would eliminate all of the lower working classes, as it was assumed that the upper class were invited for political debate.

Lenina isn’t an outspoken person sharing and discussing many ideas, she simply likes to follow what the government has suggested her to do without question.

Lenin had launched a malicious campaign called the Red
In Communism, the main goal is to have equality for both the social and the economic status. In order to achieve this goal, states ruled by the communist party do not have social classes and ownership of private property is non existent.

A communist society have no social classes, and this is why private ownership of property, and land are frowned upon. On the contrary, fascism is very much class based, which was demonstrated by Hitler and his view on race superiority. These goals might seem different, but the methods used to achieve these goals are really similar.

Writing on his chalkboard he draws the line between the two sides. Sheen states how everyone in America is in the free world and it is important that every individual matters no matter how young, old, rich, or poor you are .

Karl Marx was born May 5th 1818 in Germany. The economic ideas of Karl Marx were specifically that he did not believe in people having great ideas to change the economy but rather that all people needed was to be able to live a decent life, meaning that they had food to eat and a home.
