Real Definitions of the words Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism
Because I keep getting told what the definition of Socialism is and that I am wrong. Than be given the meaning as some softball we all work together for the common good definition… Well I am posting the true definitions here.Starting with the meaning of Capitalism and ending with Communism. The reason for that order is because that is the direction it appears we as a nation are heading.
I know most of my liberal friend tell me how bad Capitalism is because the rich just get richer and the poor get poorer. But that is not the case at all. In fact in a true Capital system all people have the chance to create new businesses that can be profitable. Basically, if you have a service or product that someone else requires or wants you can sell it to him at a profit. But no we do not have a true Capitalist system but really a system that is over regulated, note I didn’t say that no regulations are needed but over regulated. This makes the products more expensive and cost the consumer more in the end. Funny thing is that some of these people keep trying to run a private business for profit yet want a Socialist government…
Those same liberal friend will then tell me how Socialism is a much better direction because there is no rich and everything is equally distributed among the people. That the work they put in means a equal amount of financial pay. Sure the doctor will be paid more than the trash collector, but because the teacher is more valued to the community than the trash collector, the other service are also distributed in the same matter. So if the trash collector gets sick and goes to the new social doctor he will wait in a long line while the teacher get in a shorter and faster line. So where do you think the unemployed or disabiled fit in the long?
Once the government system is fully turned over, then comes Communism. While Socialism allows some small businesses, Communism controls just about all business. Take Venezuela as an example; they started as a Socialist country and now are considered to be Communist. They have taken over the majority of industries and the poverty levels jumped as pay went down under government control.
