Word Count: 767The purpose ofthis essay is to prove that Communism is a better form ofeconomic organization, compared to capitalism. I will usethese following examples equality, employment, health careand society, to show why Communism is a better form ofeconomic organization. First of all in a communist regime,people are all equal to each other no matter how educatedthat person is, in the eyes of the government. For example aSurgeon how is very well educated is equal in status with apeasant farmer because in communism their is no such thingas lower class, middle class and upper class. Eliminatingeconomic boundaries which separate people, benefits thewhole society because then we eliminate the have and havenot, as a circumstance it eliminates crime.
Secondly in aCommunist economic system people are never unemployedbecause the government owns the means of production.Meaning the governments owns all the factories and storesbecause their is no private owner ship in a Communistsystem. This is good because the government can controland decide what is needed for the good of society andproduce it. Another reason why Communism is good isbecause everyone in the country is provided with a job,house and food; no one is denied the essentials of life. Oneof the most fundamental human rights is access to adequatehealth care. In Communist countries the right of access tohealth care is very well practiced, because no one is deniedhealth care.
In a Communist country you could go to theDoctor for lets say a Flu shot or a complicated proceduresuch as a triple coronary bypass surgery and the governmentwill pick up the tab, because in communist countries everylife is valuable. Economic systems which operate in aCommunist manner consider first what is good for society.The decisions which are made especially when their aboutpolitics, the consideration is always based, is it good for thewhole of society and will society benefit? Now I will begin todiscuss why Capitalism is a poor way to administer aeconomic system.
First in a capitalistic system their is noequality people are broken down into groups. Such as lowerclass people who make under twenty thousand yearly,middle class thirty thousand yearly, upper class one hundredthousand yearly and the Corporate elite who make over amillion a year. People are broken down into groups by howmuch money they make. Depending how much money youmake; you will be seen different in the eyes of thegovernment. For example if you are a poor nobody from thelower class, chances are if you walk in to a senators officehe will not even see you because you have no money. But ifyou are a Corporate elite chances are he will see youbecause you have influence, and influence in a Capitalisticsociety is money.
In a Capitalistic system people are forcedto compete against each other to the bitter end. Children aretaught in their schools that individualism is the only way tosuccess and only to worry about themselves and not society.So basically children in a Capitalistic system are taught tobenefit themselves and not society. Due to this Capitalisticcountries face huge problems which plague their cities andsmall towns.
For example drugs, murders, robberies etc.Are a cause of capitalism, not only that, the distribution ofwealth is ridiculous. A few control the wealth, well others tryto survive, and the wealthy get wealthier and the poor getpoorer. In a Capitalistic system the have and have not arevery enormous causing those who have nothing turn to crimeto receive what they believe they deserve. Also in capitalismsystem the government in not very generous because itdoesnt take care of its people. For example if you lose yourjob and you cant receive any kind of benefits then you arescrewed, because you will become one on the millions in aCapitalist system in which people are forced to live in thestreets and eat out of trash cans. Doing this essay I examinedCommunism looking only at the pros and found out thatCommunism is really not that bad if it is administered right.When I started to compare and criticize capitalismcompared to Communism I found out that Capitalism isreally a harsh form economic organization in which thepeople of a same race or country are forced to compete atevery thing they do.
Not only that In a capitalism societymany people how cant compete in a Capitalistic society arethrown aside and labeled as bums but society doesnt lookto see what caused the problem and let these people spoil,because again in a capitalistic society only the strongsurvive. Overall my views of Capitalism are true meaningthat I do believe in Capitalism, but inside of me I feel that alittle bit of Communism mixed with capitalism will make aperfect form of economic organization in which the whole ofsociety benefits and moves forward.
