The only reason why capitalism is still chugging along in the 21st century is because we've been throwing money at it to keep it going. You had more freedom because you are a cuban syrian and not just a cuban all the way! The khoi san are stil hunter gatherers at this moment. What you're suggesting is a left-wing version of modern day social-democracy. Usually anti-democratic with a 1-party system. Like communism, laissez faire is a an idea of how society can operate.
Those countries were not communist, communism has never existed, I hear the same arguments over and over again and they are flawed because they think those countries were communist when they were not. It is not beneficial to the government or to its people. You need to give more to the people who work harder. Many countries have dominant socialist political parties but very few are truly communist. This system would destroy a lot of the liberties that we as Americans enjoy. Socialism in the Soviet Union had to be defended. Boys, onthe other hand, take language more literally ….
Thus, at best, it will be a matter, not of the reorganisation of society, not of abolishing the old social system which gives rise to anarchy and crises, but of restricting certain of its excesses. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. That is the same argument which states that you get paid the same, however, according to the 8th plank of the communist manifesto by Karl Marx, Those who do not contribute to the collective good will not receive their share from the fruit of labor from the collective good. In an ideal society, the people work to the best of their ability for the greater good of the society. The struggle here is between the capitalists who own try to produce goods at the least cost possible and the workers who struggle to work at the most wage possible. To love money is to know and love the fact that money is the creation of the best power within you, and your passkey to trade your effort for the effort of the best among men.
Ask any person who has lived under communist rule what they think. In theory, all citizens have an equal say and so are. Great revolutionary leaders with vision and scientific understanding are able to sum up lessons, develop new understanding, and forge new solutions to the challenge of creating a classless world. They divided themselves up and visited every household in the village. The money actually served to exchange not to enslave the people. Yes and in so many different ways! Is there any one person on the planet who truly understands all the ins-and-outs of making a television, an airplane, a computer, and a vending machine? This then forced further innovations to increase the yield of crops, even more, to compensate for the drop in prices of crops.
And our societies will look just as primitive, brutal, and unfair to those future people as cavemen look to us today. Do not forget that Brazil is a capitalist country, even in time of military dictatorship has always been. All societies will have people who are poorer than others, period. As stated move from computers to actually talking, where possible face to face. Modern Development Hammer, sickle and the red star are universal symbols of communism. The party led people to reorganize production. It put these productive assets in the service of a new economy.
Yes, remnants of the old bourgeoisie will still be around in the early years of socialism. Then you'll scream that money is evil. Just think if every young person in the United States knew they were going to have a job, and you also knew you were going to be given an apartment or a house, and it was either going to be free, or it could never be more than a couple percentage points of your income. Communism introduces a system in which there are no classes, meaning there is no class warfare. An autocracy ruled society, with a vast network of police, jails and surveillance. A self-reliant economy that spread industrial and technical capabilities into the countryside could also stand up better to imperialist attack and invasion and support world revolution. Hitler made it clear to his troops that he expected them to discard every principle of humanity in what was to be a war of extermination.
We would also probably no longer have the beaurocratic overhead of insurance as it would no longer be necessary, for example Healthcare would become public. After the Revolution, land was redistributed to peasants. We have to build on the best aspects of the Soviet and especially Maoist experiences. I think people will be provoked and surprised and inspired when they engage with him. The man who attempts to purchase the brains of his superiors to serve him, with his money replacing his judgment, ends up by becoming the victim of his inferiors. Often, the enemies of Mao within the Party who were coming under political attack would resort to the tactic of pretending to uphold Mao and incite factionalism and violence in the name of the Cultural Revolution. Nothing and nobody was above criticism.
Some time we are unable find the optimal solution for something but a better one. There is no room for individual rewards. Who want to do something meaningful for humanity with their lives. You can thank the growth created by capitalism for that. For the first time, man's mind and money were set free, and there were no fortunes-by-conquest, but only fortunes-by-work, and instead of swordsmen and slaves, there appeared the real maker of wealth, the greatest worker, the highest type of human being — the self-made man — the American industrialist. It would put society's resources under the public management of society as a whole to be managed democratically and scientifically.
Very simple, if products were abundant to the point of surplus meaning your resources exceed your demand , then there would be little to no profit made. Divorce was made easy to secure. However, it was short-lived, and the first modern nation to establish an official democratic system was France, which established universal male suffrage in 1848. For example, instead of making 12 different brands of toothpaste, now we just combine our efforts to fulfill people's needs for hygeine, entertainment, clothing, whatever it may be. Capitalism favors the competition over resources under a real form of or false notion of scarcity, often times fabricated by the very idea that it will increase profits.
Communism doesn't want less poor people, they want less rich people. Which is why there is this crisis depressing? Where scarcity exists, there will be competition. I'm not surprised that that is the only thing you challenged in my entire statement. And you are free in a communist society because no longer will you have to live in poverty. How would socialism address the terrible problems of capitalist society? Avakian has said that dissent must not only be allowed but actively fostered, and this includes opposition to the government. It's all about where you end up when Communism collapses. It is not the old capitalist economy simply taken over by a state.
