Carl Marx

Carl Marx created the communist manifesto he created communism because looking at the capitalist world he realized that eventually, a very few wealthy people would control the world well everybody else became slaves to their money that's pretty much what we have now the very wealthy Getting wealthier we wages are being eroded by advancing technology jobs were taken out of factories jobs were and are being taken out supermarkets by advancing technology the wealthy still profit but the employee now has no job Marx was not a bad man he wanted a world were everybody shared in the profit of the country But he forgot to take in an important detail for society to thrive you need to reward effort for the farmers to create a productive farm he needs to own the farm using his mind to build, grow and learn, to change products re-invest to grow he needs to have a self-serving desire to make his farm profitable Communism doesn't really work effectively because it doesn't reward effort yet with advancing technology are we heading towards a world were we cripple our economy where very few wealthy have money to survive but the rest of the world people are starving where jobs go to only a few Very gifted people that have the brains and the ability to stay employ what happens to all the disabled what happens to normal people people without the ability to rise above poverty when Governments no longer have tax money for benefits we need to stop and take a look at ourselves think not what can my world do for me but think instead what can I do for my world if we teach our people to become investors The perhaps as investors we could live off the profits from our shares as robots and technology took away our need for work I don't mind sitting on the side of a river fishing in the banks of a stream if I know Investments will mean I'll always have the money good investments create profit and dividends I Haven't read the communist manifesto so if Carl Marx told people to kill each other I don't like him either
