Communism, is it really evil? In Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto, he describes
communism as the party that "fights for the interests of the working class", while in a capitalist
society, the "living person is dependent and has no individuality"-----only capitalism is dependent
and has individuality. That just is not the case of today's society. There are many differences
between communist countries and capitalist countries through their economy, educational
systems, and judicial systems.
In a capitalist, democratic nation such as the United States, freedom gives us just about
everything and anything that the Vietnamese do not have under their communist government. The
people of a capitalist nation of today are more independent and possess more individualities than
ever. Economically, Americans are the most progressive people in the world. The U.S.
government is not directing the flow of its economy, but the individual people are. The people
have all the rights in the world to improve their businesses, as long as they are conducting them
under the legal guidelines of the government.
Such freedom in a capitalist society gives the
Americans a much greater advantage over the Vietnamese as far as improving economic
conditions. In Vietnam it really is not up to the individual person whether or not they improve
their living conditions.
The education in a communist country compared to a capitalist country is very different.
Usually, capitalist countries are much more highly educated than communist countries. Only
eighty percent of Vietnam's population is educated. The government does not provide free public
education to its people, and not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to afford it. Many
children, especially those in the rural areas, are pulled out of schools as soon as they know how to
read and write. Further education is not even an option for most...
