Margaret Bourke-White was an American photographer who got an opportunity to witness military scenes including the ones related to World War II. We have told you some facts about her life in the previous post.
In Communism, people wait in line all day to buy bread. In Capitalism, people wait in line all day to find a job. What’s the difference?
Depending on the year, in Communism you have plenty of money but they have no bread; in Capitalism there’s plenty of bread but you have no money to buy it.
I don’t think anyone can say it better than that.
In USSR was socialism, not communism. In communism people could work and didnt think about food because all got equally portions. Unfortunately there was hunger because of regular wars.
you use to eventually get the bread.
The percentage of people doing it.
With capitalism, you can chew on bread while standing in line.
Stalinisme or State Capitalism, not Communisme.
But you have totaly right.
@John – too right, mate.
Difference is, job is hopefully a 1 time (or 2 times) thing…bread is a daily wait and always will be a daily wait.
Holy Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo, the captions are more and more coming from some sort of parallel universe. “In 1930 Margaret got a chance to take pictures of the USSR that had been attacked by the Nazi army and was the first female war correspondent”. a) There was no Nazi army in 1930 (Dolfi and his brown bunch seized power in 1933) b) Bourke-White was not the first female war reporter.
I would prefer “sickle and hammer” rather then plastic currency ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !trading is the worst thing to experience in the history of mankind ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !!
After collapse of Soviet union,so many good things also died.like “barter trading system”.poor and undeveloped countaries were most beneficial of that system.today only “hard currency” is only requirement for trading.
WRONG … blame POLITICIANS and GREED !!! Spineless GREEDY politicians who value keeping their job above doing it are the REAL PROBLEM! GREED in all its forms! Greedy owners, greedy workers, greedy politicians, greedy investors, greedy P
ACs, etc., all blaming someone else while keeping their own hand out for more were the root cause of the financial disaster. The conservatives were as bad as the liberals. Much of the problem can be traced to investor greed, a conservative bastion.
there hasn’t been a liberal president since the 1800s, and there hasn’t been a liberal candidate taken seriously since 1917
if you knew anything about what you’re talking about you would know obama’s policies and cabinet are unquestionably more right leaning than left
Well, down here we think ol’ LBJ was a lib-er-rall. I know he was considered conservative to Yankees but his social programs put him in the progressive camp as fer as Texans as concerned.
Magnitogorsk, 1935: Sotsgorod for workers!
Depressing…….slaves don’t smile ever…..
At the factory , there is sign in back …ALL the forces must be moved forward to BOLGOGRAD (not Stalingrad)So this is not a pic of WW2!! Taken before 1925,So this is picture during big famine and this kind of hat ( budenovka) was approx. at 1922.So this is diff era of collectivism and hunger and big famine ( 6 million people in Ukraine died from hunger)
