I wonder who gave or propaganda the idea that socialism means EVERYONE having equal pay?
Socialism only means social equality within society, and if in economic terms, it only means being paid for one's honest labour or effort fairly, not
necessarily equal as in all drawing the same pay. However priviledges will differ from each level, for the worker who works the field 8 hrs under the
sun is NOT the same as the manager who sits in an office conducting meetings to meet schedules, productivity, etc.
Both are performing vital functions, and wages must commiserate upon such efforts.
Unfortunately, what we see today, even under supposed flawed man 'communism' idealogies, the worker under the sun generally starves while the
administrator curries favor, doctor the books to show immense profits, get promoted, gets improved wealth, and through connections, gains ill begotten
wealth far unimaginable to simple farmers whom sees no future and watch their lands and jobs stolen with every passing generation, meritocracy a lie
and holds meaning to only those already in the loop of protected wealth and power.
It happened not only to communisim, as in both russia and china, but equally in the free west under economic tyranny in the guise of 'capitalism'.
Capitalism in its original concept will work, just as any other mainstream political idealogy, but unfortunately, they are often twisted by the
selfish few whom will game the system to their favor. And thus, for followers of capitalism, they must not accept the illusion of current capitalism,
but ensure the People steps in to regulate that system, so that a level playing field as close to its original concept is ensured, for confidence and
it to work for all, not just for the greedu few as is today.
Politicians, intelligentsia and bootlicking economists worldwide keep up the illusion of everything fine, never voicing out the disparity, only
because that's where the side of their bread is buttered.
Fortunately, there are many more humans with conscience whom are speaking out above the well paid proganda of the selfish rich elites whom had
infiltrated society at all levels to grovel before them - from politics to economics stratas, to awaken the masses on what's been going on -
insidious slavery of mankind through debts by the few.
We mankind can no longer afford to be apathetic. To do so is not only prolonging our suffering as slaves, but will doom the next innocent generations
as slaves as well. And that, is the most painful hurt a human can ever feel, for each innocent looks upon us, the adult generation, to do the right
thing. Slavery of humanity is in no way right, for all of us were born equal....
