What is Communism?Communism is a type of governance that makeseveryone in the country equal. No one has power overanother, except the government. There is no poor, norich, only middle-class. In theory, this is a pretty goodtype of governance, but some dictators start abusing it,and people start getting killed, it becomes extremelybad. If the citizens don’t do what the governmentwants, the government will punish them, and mostlikely kill them.
What impact doesCommunism have onindividuals?If some people work in more important jobs, likebanking and things like that, they get the same amountof money as people who work in less important jobs,like coal mining. This might result with the person withthe more important job getting frustrated or angryenough to quit his/her job. If everybody quits theirimportant jobs to do less important jobs, the countrymight collapse and the country would be really poor.
What are peoples roles inthis system of governance? Everyone has different jobs, according to their skills. Everyone gets payed the same amount of money. I think that people that work in important jobs should get at least a little bit more money than people who work in less important jobs. No one can own his/her own company, because the government owns everything. The governments role is to keep everyone in order, and make up new rules.
What are peoples rights inthis system of governance?In Communist countries, the citizens have very littlerights (if any). They don’t get to go onto other countrieswebsites, they don’t get to speak freely, they don’t getto own property, they don’t get to be religious, andmuch more.
