This is not communism.....
@Implicit88, maybe if u think of the teacher as the government redistributing your goods of crayons to everyone else, but other then that meh
@Implicit88, it kind of is. You have more, so the power wants to redistribute so everyone has equal. By the way, this is total BS, if someone spends their money on extra crayons only their child should get them. Especially since most of the other crayons will get destroyed or lost since, y'know, kids.
@RomeoStealYoGurl, capitalism does that too. Thats just a redistribution system, in this case its not even that its just sharing. Communism is determining a resource is collectively owned and utilized.
@18bluecat, basically any taxation system so capitalism is this example too.
@Implicit88, if it were taxation, the teacher would take the crayons and draw a picture for the class to enjoy
@Implicit88, yeah but the crayons is already owned by the student, then forcefully redistributed by authority, like the Soviets killing the rich farmers to share all the food with everyone else. Didn't end up working out obviously tho. Capitalism would be taking a small portion of crayons of every kid like tax and destributing were it's needed, idk tho
@Implicit88, taxation under capitalism is distributing private wealth for public services, communism is taking collective wealth for collective services. The analogy works for both. However, neither is wholly good or evil. Historically, nations under communism eventually implode. Historically, nations under capitalism see a wealth divided form and have a two tiered society where elitism is rampant. Neither is really "good". Taxation (under capitalism) helps to prevent the wealth gap by scaling back the wealth of the 'upper class' to bolster the socioeconomic standing of the lower class. With the ultimate goal being a better quality of life for all. The proper analogy would be the teacher taking one of the crayons, dividing it in half and providing one half to the poorest kid in class (welfare) and providing the other half to the best artist in the class (government incentive programs).
@18bluecat, if they were told not to bring them or to put them away. And didn’t listen. Then its a punishment and not redistribution or communism.
@Breast Day Ever, communism doesnt take collective wealth, it manages resources that it deems should be collectively owned and distributes it as it sees fit. These resources are usually not privately owned. Also, goods are still bought and sold like in a regular society. The example resembles taxation (progressive taxation) at best, not capitalism or communism.
@Implicit88, under communism there are no private resources. All resources are collectively owned. Collective wealth for collective benefit. Under communism, the state (teacher), assumes control of all resources (takes the crayons), then distributes evenly among the class. Under capitalism, the state (teacher), demands a portion of crayons (taxation), and then draws a picture for the class to enjoy, or uses the crayons to build a road, hospital, etc. The difference is how the seized crayons get used, they can be distributed to the people, or they can be used for public good. I still feel the analogy fits communism far better than capitalism with taxation.
Aww hell no. No one touches my crayolas.... Stay away...I mean it.... Im a biter. 😋😝
Why didn’t they just get their own crayons it’s not that hard to buy a pack
