Communism is the situation in a social organization the community owns all the property, and hence everyone contributes and receives according to their ability. The communist command type of economy entirely transforms the society to conform to the vision of the planner. In this case, there are several reasons why communist responses and the formulation of a new belief is essential despite the indifference which may come along;
Policy choices to reduce social inequality–Rent reduction or land redistribution; the existing social and wealth distribution channels had done very little in terms of building a well-balanced wealth and wealth distribution pattern. In return, it had increased the rate of social inequality, due to the increased capitalism, markets had become destabilized, and there was increased pricing of products and commodities in the market (Thaxton, 1997).
For this reason, there was a reason to adopt a modified social system that could help square some of the inequalities out. In this case, the society was divided into two groups that comprised of the peasants living in extreme poverty and the wealthy government elites who owned the means of production. Resources transfer cost was high, and bureaucracy had made it almost impossible to do business. On the other hand, the rental system was crooked hence making it hard for people to survive with inhumane living conditions. In this case, living standards were at the highest during this devastating time (Wu, 2014). With more control over the market distribution of resources, the consumers and the miserable would be cushioned by the market structures.
Due to the increased bureaucracy, it was hard to make a means of production. In this case, there was increased exploitation of resources by the elites who did nothing to compensate for the profits they gained due to selfish interests by the elites.
The state, in this case, was captured and was made to represent the interests of a few who had little interest in building capacity for sustainability (Thaxton, 1997). Conflicts of interest and the obsession to expand territories to other areas was the reason for increased investment in war and related spending.
This hence resulted in the nation being most vulnerable from attacks and invasion from the neighbouring countries. The condition of wrong focus led to a situation of low levels of education, traditionalists, and bondage to tribal and traditional connections that limited the reach and influence of modernity. In this case, there was a reason to embrace other cultures and positive technological innovations that would help in improving production capacity.
A new regime of social norms and values was believed to be the only hope for stabilizing the market. Scaling up is a critical strategy in market control, and this was some of the aspects that led to the condition of the increased influx of products in the market. It can be argued theoretically from the control the business has over the market variables (Wu, 2014). In this case, with more scaled-up firms and companies, the market would be more stabilized to the interest of the consumer.
This strategy could not be tolerated by the wealthy and elite class for the benefit they had in the respective industries. This led to increased price dominance and price influx for personal attention and unfair competition vices that destabilized the market economy. The rate of companies rising to the major leagues to help bring competence in market structure and business models for sustainability of the business and future trends in the industry.
The populists gave suggestions for the government to go against its operation capacity and help stabilize the market by offering loans as well as operating government initiates stores to help build capacity for a steady supply and distribution patterns that would secure the market. This was among the reasons that led to a decreased rate of startups due to the increased rate of production and distribution (Thaxton, 1997).
Capitalism had an increased rate of cultural erosion and moral erosion. In this case, there was a need for the country and its population to detach itself from the ethical norms that led to this kind of society. The Chinese demanded a system that included the inclusion of new values that built the state of nationhood and what the nation believed in (Thaxton, 1997). The rate of social disorganization was the highest due to eroded norms due to the increased idealism on the western world perspectives on life and societal norms.
The populists believed there was a need to bring social order and include new aspects that described the society. They argued for the nation to retrench back to the roots that define them and the community around them. With an altered perception of the problem, the solution can be able to solve some of the issues that affect the community (Wu, 2014). As inspired by the understanding that once the language has been controlled, there would be not much they could do in their states to move away from the chains, and it would take longer to fully recover from the full impact of being influenced by the elite mind poison.
In conclusion, despite communism being a centrally planned economy, it quickly ends up mobilizing the economic resources on a large scale, create the industrial power and also run a lot of massive projects. This happens because of its ability to override self-interest and puts in action the welfare of the general population in achieving the set goals and objectives.
