The purpose of

this essay is to prove that Communism is a better form of

economic organization, compared to capitalism. I will use

these following examples equality, employment, health care

and society, to show why Communism is a better form of

economic organization. First of all in a communist regime,

people are all equal to each other no matter how educated

that person is, in the eyes of the government. For example a

Surgeon how is very well educated is equal in status with a

peasant farmer because in communism their is no such thing

as lower class, middle class and upper class. Eliminating

economic boundaries which separate people, benefits the

whole society because then we eliminate the have and have

not, as a circumstance it eliminates crime. Secondly in a

Communist economic system people are never unemployed

because the government owns the means of production.

Meaning the governments owns all the factories and stores

because their is no private owner ship in a Communist

system. This is good because the government can control

and decide what is needed for the good of society and

produce it. Another reason why Communism is good is

because everyone in the country is provided with a job,

house and food; no one is denied the essentials of life. One

of the most fundamental human rights is access to adequate

health care. In Communist countries the right of access to

health care is very well practiced, because no one is denied

health care. In a Communist country you could go to the

Doctor for lets say a Flu shot or a complicated procedure

such as a triple coronary bypass surgery and the government

will pick up the tab, because in communist countries every

life is valuable. Economic systems which operate in a

Communist manner consider first what is good for society.

The decisions which are made especially when their about

politics, the consideration is always based, is it good for the

whole of society and will society benefit? Now I will begin to

discuss why Capitalism is a poor way to administer a

economic system. First in a capitalistic system their is no

equality people are broken down into groups. Such as lower

class people who make under twenty thousand yearly,

middle class thirty thousand yearly, upper class one hundred

thousand yearly and the Corporate elite who make over a

million a year. People are broken down into groups by how

much money they make. Depending how much money you

make; you will be seen different in the eyes of the

government. For example if you are a poor nobody from the

lower class, chances are if you walk in to a senators office

he will not even see you because you have no money. But if

you are a Corporate elite chances are he will see you

because you have influence, and influence in a Capitalistic

society is money. In a Capitalistic system people are forced

to compete against each other to the bitter end. Children are

taught in their schools that individualism is the only way to

success and only to worry about themselves and not society.

So basically children in a Capitalistic system are taught to

benefit themselves and not society. Due to this Capitalistic

countries face huge problems which plague their cities and

small towns. For example drugs, murders, robberies etc.

Are a cause of capitalism, not only that, the distribution of

wealth is ridiculous. A few control the wealth, well others try

to survive, and the wealthy get wealthier and the poor get

poorer. In a Capitalistic system the have and have not are

very enormous causing those who have nothing turn to crime

to receive what they believe they deserve. Also in capitalism

system the government in not very generous because it

doesn't take care of its people. For example if you lose your

job and you can't receive any kind of benefits then you are...
