I am from eastern Europe and I lived until 28 years old in communism era ! this part from my life was the best ! all time I believed in capitalism until I saw and I feel myself this system ! Capitalism= slavery = exploitation = abuse ! Private companies can not do any good services or products because is greedy and need just profit ! I worked in private company and I saw …all mess …! in private hospitals and assisted living or schools is mess and no any good services …is just capitalist propaganda!
