My name is Tom Hooker. I am sixteen and would like people to know
about capitalist propaganda in schools.
In the classroom, I learned that capitalism was the only "good"
economy, and learned a lot about it. However, I did not learn that
much about communism or socialism. I learned that communism was
totalitarinist, and that socialism led to communism.
Up until I turned sixteen, I thought that communism and socialism
both were evil, and would sometimes call things or people communist.
Luckily, I found out that I didn't know much about the two and
investigated. What I discovered was that capitalism is actually every
man for himself, and that communism and socialism is an equal
distribution. I also discovered that the former leaders of the
U.S.S.R. and China were not true to the communist philosphy. I became
a socialist, and agree with some things in communism, and some things
in capitalism. In conclusion, if you don't really know about
something, find out more and make your own decision.
