Thanks STEEMIT! I can tell you, I can express my thoughts. I am very interested in becoming @gangsta "Socialism v Capitalism – isn’t it about time we changed the record?" I did not expect that this issue will arouse great interest among many people. I am very grateful for the comment @kooshikoo . This topic interests me very much, too. I want to express my thoughts on the subject.I want to say, as described on the @kooshikoo "Сollaborative ownership of the means of production, " I have written in earlier comments that Socialism is more than just equality of people. Each gives the result of labor and receives income from this result. But how to comply this condition in this system. Who should regulate these complex scales. How to avoid unfair distribution. Where is this criterion.
I agree that capitalism produces quick thinking and growth of various businesses. However, not all people can receive sufficient income. There is a great disparity between people Socialism is the economic formation of society in which private ownership of the means of production is not . I have no right to have their own factories, companies. Director of the firm must be subject to state regulatory agencies. It does not have its own funds, which can be sent to the director of a particular enterprise. Controlling the public authorities control all the funds that have accounts plants, factories or other enterprises. The owner (director) of the enterprise has only salary. Therefore, limited initiative of the Director. There is no competition. The owner (director) has no right to sell its plant, factory or other business enterprise, because the state owns these companies. The owner (director) may leave the company. He should resign. But he will only receive a salary. He did not receive a company's value. The state owns all the finances. As a rule, business accounts are virtual money. The government decides to buy the machine or not. A State may send all finances on one goal at any time. One political party controls the state. State depends on the activity of the party. The power in the state is becoming highly centralized. One person controls the party This phenomenon can easily lead to dictatorship. The party leader will concentrate in their hands the power of all the power and finances of the entire state. The activities and the life of any person in the country will depend on the will of the statesman. Leaders of political parties are different. There were leaders of a political party with a less violent tendencies. Usually, these leaders consult with members of the party. They considered their proposals. By the way, the head of a political party has not the right to own property in the means of production and fixed assets. He has the right to own personal property only. For example: When Khrushchev left his post of head of state and a political party, he returnd the furniture that was in the villa.When Brezhnev died, his wife had to returns the villa.
These events are associated with the principle of social equality and social justice
I described a very primitive system of the socialist state, but in fact it is. Socialism is the economic formation of society in which private ownership of the means of production. This principle, as will be observed? The control of this rests on political party that controls the state apparatus, the ministries, etc. Ministry organize proper distribution of GDP. Distribute GDP is very difficult to under the principle of socialism. Many people get a low level of income. It is difficult to sustain the correct matching amount of labor expended and the resulting income for every citizen. Often it comes down to egalitarianism. Therefore, people lose the desire to work and make effective quality. I described the shortcomings of socialism primitive, but we can call a huge number of positive aspects of socialism: Right to work. Every citizen has the right to get the job done. Every citizen should be employed in their specialty. If a person deviates from getting a job, he can even be brought to justice. The slogan: "Who does not work - does not eat," observed strictly. The right to free education. Citizen receives secondary or higher education, but it does not pay for it. On the contrary, students and graduate students receive scholarships. The right to free medical care. The citizen does not pay for the visit to the doctor. In addition, the citizen does not pay for the implementation of the most complex operations. Naturally, the cost of these operations is very large. Grants were given for the production of meat, butter and other products. Therefore, the main products were cheap. The prices of these products were below cost. So-called "Funds of public consumption" were significant. People visited cultural centers, took a book to home to read . They did not paid for it. People visited sports clubs, playing hockey to rinks, playing football in the stadiums. They is not paid for it Children rested in pioneer camps. Children participated in various activities, go hiking, swam, sunbathing, playing football. Parents do not pay for this. The citizen, who worked at the company, had the right to receive housing. He received a house after 3 - 6 years, sometimes earlier. Citizen not paid for the provision of housing, but he had the right to live in this housing to death. Of course, he had no right to sell this housing, but his children had the right to live in this housing after death father and mother . They is not paid for it. Housing services were cheap. Also kilowatt-hour electric power petrol were cheap. Obviously, Aeroflot, the railroad received grants from the state, because the tickets were not expensive, affordable. In the winter vacation, students had the right to buy tickets cheaper in 2 times on a plane or train. Obviously, theaters received grants too, because the tickets costed 15 - 10 times less than the wages. A major role is given to the trade unions. The trade union holiday resorts in the cost of 3 - 4 times less than the wages. Trade unions organized the purchase of fruits and vegetables at much lower prices for winter. The unions organized a trip to the nature of enterprise employees to rest on Sunday. The employees were not paid for it From the above it is clear that people receive additional income, in addition to the salary is not very high. It can be concluded that socialism has great disadvantages, but socialism has great advantages over capitalism. Socialism has the indisputable advantage that state can send huge amounts of money for the implementation of an ambitious
project and to carry out the project in a short time. For example, the construction of
the Baikal-Amur Railway, Krasnoyarsk HES and others
The question is very important:
How can we improve socialism? How to bring it to perfection? Is it better to take from capitalism? Do we need to take from capitalism? Us to build a completely new system?
