the flaws of communism

Once upon a time, there was a philsophy. A philsophy that was thought to solve man's problem and make life better for all. It has been implemented many times and many ways, but guess what? Productivity has been decreased, some countries that have implemented this way of life have brutally killed millions of people, and freedom has been lost. This philsophy is called communism and this is what ruined many lives and countries. Here are three ways why that is;

1. The heart of communism is that they control every aspect of a person's life. In a communist society, the government controls all means of production and a person is told what to make and how it is to be done. It is complete dependence on the government for their daily lives. If a person wants to move to another place, he has to have the government's permission. If he wants to get married, he needs the government's approval.

2. Communist have and always been against organized religion. Karl Marx once said,"Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions.It is the opium of the people." and Vladimir Lenin was one who said, "Religion is the biggest lie, that humanity has ever invented." .In China and the former Soviet Union, millions have been murdered for practicing their beliefs. This is probably because to ensure that to keep people dependent on the government, they have to eliminate every possible threat to that which includes Christianity.

3. There is no such thing as being a millionaire in a communist society. Many communists leaders have worked to abolish all the different classes, thus making everyone equal. Lenin said, " War cannot be abolished unless classes are abolished and Socialism is created." People like Lenin believe that in capitalism, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer and that it is oppressing the working class. He said, "When feudalism was overthrown and “free” capitalist society appeared in the world, it at once became apparent that this freedom meant a new system of oppression and exploitation of the working people." In reality, those that work get richer and those that don't get poorer. People get what they earn.
