First off, I want to apologize for not posting this Monday. My family went to get a new van and we had to drive a while to get it.
A while back a question was posed to me that got me thinking: Who did more to help people, Mother Theresa or Steve Jobs. My gut told me to say Mother Theresa right away, but then I thought about all that Steve Jobs has done. He’s provided jobs to thousands upon thousands of people, he’s invented relatively cheap, hard-working computers for everyday people. Nowadays almost everyone has a phone or a tablet, for the most part, because of technology that he pioneered.
If socialism/communism is such a good idea then why does every manifestation of it commit gross violations of human rights? If socialism/communism is such a good idea then why does every manifestation of it produce dictatorial regimes where no one wants to live?
So in light of all this evidence, I would submit to you that it is Capitalism and freedom that allow for the best allocation of goods and thus better for the average worker.
I want to thank shatterthefourthwall for nominating me for the Friends for Days award.
