One is the fact that middle class is too weak to be influential. Their model Britain has a much stronger middle class, and the difference is not neglectable, but decisive. The second aspect is that, well, they don’t understand Marxism. They don’t know that their dream capitalism society is just on... ... middle of paper ... ...e to us, and until then will we represent the working class and lead our country towards communism. I understand that Mensheviks is a minority party, and will keep being minority for a long time.
In an excerpt by Paine in his book “Rights of Man”, Paine begins by noting the obvious differences in America’s people, but then praises them for overcoming those barriers and living more as one, despite their differences. While America is still diverse in several aspects, it is not the utopian society that Paine portrays in his book. There is a huge gap between the poor and the rich and there are actually many things that engender riots and tumults. His observations, however, were fairly accurate during his lifetime. With such a diverse society, especially even today as numerous immigrants come to America seeking a better future for their families, one can see how these combinations of so many different cultural backgrounds might have difficulty of coming to terms with each other.
Communism is an original system of society, quite different from Democracy in many ways. While total democracy is not widely spread, many forms of it are prosperous throughout the world today. One of the first and major differences between a Communist and Democratic government is their contrary economic systems. In a communist government, the community owns the major resources and means of production. The goal of such a system is to prevent any one person or group of people from becoming radically rich, while others are extremely poor.
If a country is lacking in resources, then that country would be determined to be poor in wealth. Some countries have resources, but are unable to obtain the resources either by corruption or the lack of up-to-date technology. The lack of resources would make countries unable to get their own source of revenue, whether it is from selling these resources or keeping the resources for financial backup. Most of the countries that are poor are from corruption. The leaders that support corruption spend the countries’ wealth in a free and lavish lifestyle.
Most thought this because of the consequences of communism and mass destruction it can cause within a country. Kovaly says "Rudolf could decide on the basis of statistics- mostly falsified, or course- that under communism people lived a better and happy life. I saw from close-up and with my own eyes that this was not true. (p.65) While it is great that citizens live under similar economic terms and are assured of the same paycheck every week, communism is not an environment that will allow businesses or people to flourish. On the opposite of a Capitalist society, where businesses are abled skyrocketed earnings, a Communist society affects businesses ability to grow.
On the other hand, those people who are being rich in a short period, such as upstarts, prefer to enjoy the luxurious life rather than helping other poor people, because most of them don’t have enough education and social responsibility. It doesn’t mean they are cold blood, but selfish; they are short of the awareness to donate the wealth to help people, because they used to be poor and become rich “suddenly;” the method of keeping the treasure is more important than donating into the charity. These reasons also expand the gap between rich and poor (Zhang 2011, 13).
Tom having an affair with a middle class woman was a huge class difference. Also Daisy will not leave Tom to be with Gatsby because even though Gatsby has money he is not seen as high class. Gatsby lives in West Egg not East egg so he is not as classy as Tom and Daisy. Daisy doesn’t care that Gatsby had changed from the poor man she once new because she thinks that Tom’s old money is better than Gatsby’s new money. The rich seem to be unified by their money.
Countless people across America view immigration as something negative; however, this thought can be proved wrong. Immigrants, both legal and illegal are ordinary people, but people like us continue to give them labels and cause them to feel like total outcasts. Deporting these people who love America just as much as we do is not the answer. Since plenty of immigrants work jobs and pay taxes, those immigrants do not negatively impact the United States’ economy. A great portion of the general public is not aware that immigrants consist of about one-tenth of America’s population.
We do not want the masses to vote simply because they can easily do so, but to put forth an effort to vote wisely. Many scholars believe that low civic participation is an underlying problem of American social decay. Our nation is too complacent when it comes to political participation. Most citizens are content to sit back and let a few elites decide the direction of our country. The solution is not to just "go out and vote," but to be an informed voter.
This type of corruption usually transpires where there is little social voice and official political influence, benefiting those at the center of a concentrated, economic network. Administrative corruption includes actions that distort the ‘prescribed implementation’ of such laws and regulations, often bribes to public officials that result in selective exemptions to individuals or firms. The Business Environment and Enterprise Performance ... ... middle of paper ... ...vatization is likely to lead to massive self-dealing by managers and controlling shareholders unless a country has a good infrastructure” (1731). Without such infrastructure, Russia could not successfully implement rapid privatization, and even in Czecholslovakia, where initial results were promising, increasing ‘tunneling’ in the late 90s has led to a recession. Moreover, partial reform has not always featured the excessive corruption that was predicted by many economists.
