Who created it, it's purpose, and simply why it's the best:
Socialism was spun off of the classic capitalism and was created by Marx and Engles. Its purpose is to impose a classless society with everyone having equal pay, equal rights, and equal oppurtunity. With an equal pay, this gives a sense of fairness upon the community. It completely eliminates a lower, middle, and upper class! This is the best simply for that reason. Another reason is that the community makes the choices of businesses instead of the actual businesses owners themselves. With the community looking out for the good of the whole, the disagreements about the business will be eliminated completely. The reason it became so popular is the simplicity of it. No classes. Equality for the people. Everyone makes choices for the whole. It just makes sense. One prime example of socialism in today's society is America. Although it is not completely socialistic, it still as aspects of that type of government. Our taxes go to schools, government workers, and help pay for roads, park up-keep, and military services. With all of these factors, why would't you choose this?
