    By rags to riches, i mean he litterally had nothing. used all his money coming to the States. 0. That's pretty much the lowest you can come.

    I'm not trying to deny that people have moved up economically, it happens. Thats what so great about this country. I was just emphisizing the fact that Carnegie literally had nothing, and because ridiculously rich.

    Also, i agree with you on the schooling thing. I was just refering to the whole factory scenario. You could literally work to death, and not get anywhere.

    I was already rambling on in my first post, i didn't want to keep adding to it. But yes, you and i basically share the same ideas.

    My teacher always says that communism is evil, and it pisses me off. Things connected to communism have been evil in the past, nothing more than that.

    Everyone always teaches us that fairness is best, and government is so contradictary. I realize that it would be difficult to maintain in a large group, but I'd just like to point at that there is a lot of hypocracy in what we are taught.

    Too many people get socialism, communism and (fascism XD?) mixed up...

    Everyone is equal in a socialistic society!
    Equally poor

    I totally agree. My history teacher is a badass though. She's totally open minded about things and isn't afraid to point things out that are intresting, such as why our country, or other country do things that are questionable. My favorite line from her: Follow the money.

    A lot of the views here are highly uneducated.

    Read a history book. Take a sociology class.

    My gov teacher. "They drop f-bombs like candy bars."

    Government is the main area that needs a bit of boosting in the US.

    Communism would be great if i didn't have so many opportunities for corruption and lazieness. I personally like Democratic socialism, or any other kind of socialism
