Response to chapter 12
I firmly believe that a socialist government has its advantages and disadvantages. Some of the subjects that we touched base on in this chapter remind me of the situation that is going on in my country. In everything that we have accomplished as a species and as a society, we must realize that a capitalist society while providing opportunities to those who are lucky enough to obtain these chances has many flaws and does not afford equal treatment to those who are not so fortunate to have these social connections. While I choose to remain politically neutral, it is clear and apparent that any sort of government we have today is flawed because of one fundamental reason. We are all human and as such there is no perfect system. I'm resolved to believe that we each have to do the best that we can and when we see any sort of opportunity to better ourselves as humans we must take it.
