They'll only do it if there's a vested interest. There is a limit to how much doublethink a human being can do, and in the end I think that people just got fed up. Communism always fails because in order for the Communist Government to enforce their goals of unity, equality, and economic order, they have to have complete and utter power over the people. Once free of Soviet rule, the individual countries were free to create their own economic systems, many of which still retain some elements of economic communism while embracing and as well. That is real genius on their part. Also, I'm rather confused as to why you're presupposing places like Kazakstan are bad places to live.
What happens if a nuclear war is triggered? Posts should be good-faith attempts to ask questions about politics. You live there normally you buy what you buy you pay for what you need to pay for. This is where things get tricky. Sure you try again, but you redesign the car first. There has been plenty of time to fine tune it by now surely. By comparison, Norway has an average of 82 years. They need to be fueled by reward.
Doubtless there are benefits to strong centralized rule in the name of the people. Communist rule may be directly blamed for the deaths of in the twentieth century. Not to mention heavy taxation on the capitalists to meet the socialistic goals. Cuban culture is pretty cool. Yes it did - along with the repercussions at home of the inability to actually win conclusively, as we are finding out now to our cost in our turn, and as the British found at the height of their power when we tried to run the place.
This is my first time on this sub and there is a great community here. Maybe communism isn't the only answer. There is a very small minority that actually does things for others with no intention or want of any reward. In capitalist societies, the verdict is clear. Tell that to the people working in sweat-shops in third-world countries or the lowest rungs of society back in 1800s Great Britain; they are starving to death because of unrestrained capitalism.
Putting the environment before money or we will all end up starving. This made America the global engine of prosperity and wealth. Money is our medium of trade. I truly, honestly, and completely fail to see a single service that could be performed better by government. An example of what I mean by indoctrination is the name given by East Germany to the wall dividing it from West Germany. The bubble burst when the institutional fraud could not be sustained.
Many of the Eastern European governments were puppet regimes handpicked by communist party leaders working remotely from Russia; communications between Russia and its Eastern European satellites were rarely two-way streets. It was only after the Fall of the Berlin Wall that they were able to engage in an expensive and draining five year long court action to restore their rightful property rights and regain the deed to their villa, which by now had fallen virtually into ruin as fifty years had elapsed. Communism takes that away from everyone. It is only after this point that communism can achieve victory. We should emphasize that these qualities can exist not only in varying degrees, but in various ways. How does Bill O'Reilly create value He creates content that people want to consume. And, nor do 'distribution networks arise automatically', unless you posit the existence of God as an economic factor.
I see failure as a system that is collpasing. I do not think our current system is doing that. Distinction will be his paramount object, and although he would as willingly, perhaps more so, acquire it by doing good as harm, yet, that opportunity being past, and nothing left to be done in the way of building up, he would set boldly to the task of pulling down. Of course I'm not suggesting that prices and distribution adjust without human agency - whatever gave you that idea? I do not think any concept of a society is prefect 'from the get-go'. A group of young boys band together and try to kill the rapist gang, however they fail and the rapists kill all the boys and then rape their dead bodies. This seems fundamentally immoral on a certain level.
The group sees itself as separate from and different to its environment and relates as a group to or withdraws as a group from its environment;. You were doing great, until this sentence A bit of communism in our history would have been a disaster. Some well known, salt of the earth companies and brand names will disappear forever, but they will be replaced and refreshed by unforeseen, startling new entities which will bring the nation new economic vitality and vigor. Check our for more answers like this! Also, there is not much incentive to innovate or work very hard. Maybe we would be better off in a highly regulated, but still capitalist society? At some point in the future that might one day be the case. If there's something about either of these that immediately indicates Cuba is a poor place to live, feel free to shout it out. An engineer tries to design the first car and fails? Communism is what is extinct.
If you grow up in a world where people go to work to make money to buy things, so that somone else receives that money and can buy things etc. Many Eastern European countries were eager to move towards a freer economic system. Captain America - My point about Madoff and Enron was to point out how purely capitalistic entittes can produce substantial economic 'bubbles'. A would want the equality, but B would not. Intentional communities have emerged as a result of a number of people consciously and purposefully coalescing as a group in order to realize a set of aims.
To do otherwise is dumb. It failed because when one is not compensated for how hard they work or what they innovate, they have less incentive to work 60 hours a week or invent Microsoft. Multiply that effect by virtually every laborer in the nation, and you soon see why socialist economies are marked by long queues outside stores when the word gets out that they have soap, or bread, or eggs that day. So what you're saying is that if a country has a homogeneous ethnic make-up, then communism would work in that country? Economics is in the end a zero sum game. This does not sound right to me personally.
