The Government tax people but provide, health care, infrastructure, education and welfare as well as owning certain industries to keep some form of economic planning available to them. However recently the Government has sold off a lot of nationalised industries and this has allowed for more competition and moves the economy in to a more Capitalist state. Conclusion In a Capitalist society there is great suffering because of the great inequality but in a Socialist society it seems that, even though the idea of everyone living equally in harmony is appealing, the fact of the matter is that the only equality that people will share is the equality of no choice and oppression. True Socialism can never work in any society because it is human nature to want mare than you have and to strive to achieve this. Countries that say they are socialist seem to me to be more of a dictatorship.
After all of these things have been accomplished, only then will a State have a unified and equal state over which to govern. The people will stop fighting and rebelling, simply because there is no reason. In conclusion, class struggle and differences between work and ownership have been the defeat of many empires and governments for millennia. By making people equal in all aspects, it defeats the need for rebellion and war. Marx and Engels, along with the Communist League, believed replacing the economic system would fix a large portion of problems in the world.
Our government has been intoxicated under the influences of those holding a paper with a handful of zeros scrawled on it.... ... middle of paper ... ...s the Other, as a class of lazy bums, as a hindrance to our country. However, the power of the lower class is far greater than any power on this earth. For if we embrace and nurture this power, our country would grow like never seen before, the obstacles that threaten our livelihood would cease to exist, and our society would be represented as a model for all other nations to follow. But due to the current crisis of our country's financial, political, and social foundations, being the other in our civilization would rarely lead to achieving the American Dream. If our society was only cultivated to meet the standards of the American Dream, only then will the poor meet the standards of the rich, only then will our country defeat the long historical battle against poverty, and only then will a child born in the Bronx end up living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Everyone must know the destruction of society through ObamaCare, Medicare, and the welfare system. All these programs give handouts to people who really don't need them at all. The government is wasting money and ruining the economy by giving these hand outs to people. ObamaCare and Medicare are also hurting small businesses by giving businesses high taxes that small businesses can't handle. People will continue to receive hand outs because they don't want to work.
For example, when the bourgeois cuts employment because of technology, the bourgeois hurts society by "…instead of rising the laborers with the progress of industry, sinks them deeper below the conditions of existence of their own class... ... middle of paper ... ...both of their ideas. They seem to use similar methods, using logical statements to convey their points that seem to very much contrast each other. Marx’s philosophies deal with improving society for the better to reach industrial prosperity while Smith believes that the incentives of a free market will allow this happen and that human nature will cause Marx’s theory to fail. In the end both men want one common goal which is the best possible economic system for society because both realize that economics is single greatest controller of the major aspects of society.

Because of this, when they have the revolution they destroy everything. In the second chapter, Marx goes into detail how religion and philosophy... ... middle of paper ... ...s are not in the market to negotiate, because as far as they are concerned, they can find just about anyone willing to replace you. The closest we’ve seen to a “revolution” are basic unions that go on strike when they want higher wages and what not. These are somewhat effective, if you have everyone on board. In conclusion, Marx may have been right about many things, but he was also wrong about a lot more.
During the Second Industrial Revolution two philosophies combated each other on a global scale. Laissez-Fair economics had ruled for the last few centuries and had created many prosperous nations but abuses of power by wealthy men had turned public opinion against it. Ever since its creation, Socialism begged to be placed head to head with Capitalism and it had finally gotten its chance. Laissez-Fair economics and Socialism both have their pros and cons when implemented in society. The battle between these two ideological works its way throughout society alternating between the protests and debates in the U.S. today to the great terror of the Cold War.
Nonetheless, ruthlessly destroying the businesses and lives of many people merely for personal profit; Carnegie attained a level of dominance and wealth never before seen in American history, but was only able to obtain this through acts that were dishonest and oftentimes, illicit. Document D resentfully emphasizes the alleged capacity of the corrupt industrialists. In the picture illustrated, panic-stricken people pay acknowledgment to the lordly tycoons. Correlating to this political cartoon, in 1900, Carnegie was willing to sell his holdings of his company. During the time Morgan was manufacturing steel pipe tubing, Carnegie threatened to ruin him by invading his business if Morgan did not buy Carnegie out.
“Lenin called them "useful idiots," those people living in liberal democracies who by giving moral and material support to a totalitarian ideology in effect were braiding the rope that would hang them. Why people who enjoyed freedom and prosperity worked passionately to destroy both is a fascinating question, one still with us today.” ~ Professor Bruce Thornton, Cal State Fresno I seldom watch TV anymore, other than sporting events; I have no use for a woeful medium that so willfully damaged our beloved America and continues to do so with amoral programming and station to station disinformation called the network news. The other night, while channel surfing during a "Monday Night Football" time out, I happened upon “Boston Legal” just in time to hear one of the characters call those Americans who didn't vote for Barrack Hussein Obama, idiots. Idiots! The fifty percent of America who see this man for what he is are idiots in the minds of the smug fools of Hollywood, the most dysfunctional community on the planet.
The giants that once were predators became prey, whether it be a natural disaster or the Antitrust laws they no longer had control over the whole. The Antitrust laws have had a positive impact on American society through restricting monopolies; ensuring that no single business can control a market then using that power to exploit customers, protecting the public from price fixing, and producing new higher quality and innovative products through competition. The “dinosaurs” that ruled the country at the turn of the 20th century were coming to a halt, JPMorgan, Andrew Carnegie, and Rockefeller would no longer have the grasp over the country like they once had. They all had their troubles building their massive empires, JPMorgan, Andrew Carnegie, and Rockefeller all had monopolies over one or more products, JPMorgan was a financial banker who controlled the electric, railroad and steel businesses, he acquired the steel monopoly from Andrew Carnegie, and Rockefeller controlled almost all of the oil business, producing oil products like kerosene and gasoline. The Antitrust laws would no longer allow the big businesses like theirs to grow and conquer like they did before.
