    2. Communism and socialism are economic and political structures that promote equality and seek to eliminate social classes. In communism, working class owns everything, and everyone works toward the same communal goal. There are no wealthy or poor people -- all are equal, and the community distributes what it produces based only on need. Nothing is obtained by working more than what is required. socialism’s main focus is on equality. But workers earn wages they can spend as they choose, while the government, not citizens, owns and operates the means for production. Workers receive what they need to produce and survive, but there’s no incentive to achieve more, leaving little motivation.

    2. I think you're talking about "state capitalism" instead of "socialist capitalism"... it's not possible to be both capitalist and socialist at the same time. This is essentially Communism. State capitalism is where the government owns and controls everything. Private Enterprise or as you say, American-style capitalism, is where private individuals own businesses, control their own investments, can own land, etc. Socialism is where the community owns everything as a whole. The problem with socialism, communism, and state-capitalism is that there is no incentive for people to actually work. If you don't have to be responsible for yourself and the community/government will just take care of you, why bother doing anything? For those who still had a drive to be responsible and do their part, they would see others getting rewarded for doing nothing and stop working. Example: You are a farmer working on the community/government-owned farmland and get up every day at 5 A.M. and work until 5 P.M. milking cows, bailing hay, etc. On the other hand, your neighbor doesn't do anything. They sit home all day and since the community/government guarantees they are going to be cared for, your hard labor and efforts in producing food goes to this person. Would you still want to work if they don't have to work? You're slaving away to take care of this person. Even if everyone is working in a socialist/communist system, there still is inequality in compensation for the work individuals do. As in the above example, you're slaving away on the farm every day, working 60-80 hours a week; meanwhile, your neighbor is working 40 hour weeks as a secretary in a nice, quiet, and clean office answering phones and shuffling paper. Although your work is not equal, because of communism/socialism, you both receive the same wage/benefits. Why would you want to do hard work as a farmer? Shouldn't you receive more than your neighbor? Unequal work should not guarantee equal compensation. Bringing disabled people into the equation is another issue all together. A true communism state would not accept these people at all - they would be killed. Disabled people cannot work and cannot contribute to the economy in anyway so they are worthless. A socialist society may help them, but it's the same situation. They can't help the community, so why keep them around? The only real hope for these people is capitalism where people can first help themselves and then reach out to help others.

    2. It is true that when parents educate children about how to become good figures in society, it benefits the child. However, some believe that it should be the school's job to teach the children instead. Both sides have their own advantages and disadvantages which will be further discussed. On one hand, parents are the closest and most influential people in a child's life rather than friends or teachers. Furthermore, the beginnings to build a strong personality and valuable social skills are best taught through parental guidance since that is easy for children. Someone once said that how someone was raised dictates who the person will become. As a parent or family member, they should teach their children what kind of person is a good member of society and how to become such a person. On the other hand, educating further in schools could be more beneficial and important. For children, school is the first step to being able to socialize and learn how to develop relationships with others. This could mean that it is much more effective to learn these lessons at school rather than at home, since such an environment is too sheltered to be taught about the matters of society. In conclusion, there are pros and cons to each side respectively. In my opinion, both places are very prominent in a child's life which means that they both are able to provide methods to educate children on how to become principled members of society. I think both parents and schools should teach children and shape them into good people in order to achieve many things in their futures.
