Capitalism versus Communism
I have just returned from a week long trip visiting my relatives in Krakow Poland. asked my cousin her personal experience when she lived under communism and how does she feels about capitialism in the new Poland and the recent events in the EU. My cousin gave me an indepth account of communism, the Polish were never allowed their views to be heard, and the leaders took everything which was of some cultural value out of the country, and shipped it to Russia. The communist leaders in 1948 created a new town called Nova Hutta, an industial town of great significance to the communist empire. The Communist's erected a chinley in front of the Wavel Castle a medival and renaissance castle, and is a blot on the landscape and looks out of place in the renaissance city, as the communist wanted to distroy anything of culture and beauty. Capitalism has allowed the Wavel castle to be used as capitalist venture and is a asset to the Polish economy and is used 364 days of the year to make monies from the tourists.. Even Nova Hutta is now used a capitalist venture, and is a major tourist attraction as idylic communist town (Michael Palin visited the town on his odessey around Eastern Europe). Capitalism allows the individual to have their voices heard in a democratic manner and creates a business culture which is better for the individual and groups of people in the longterm. To get straight to the point SBC has shown it's true colors by not allowing a legitmate petition to brought to the planning meeting on Wednesday 18th July about the eyesore called a Cliff's Musuem on a picturesque green space in Westcliff-on-sea, this has simmularities to a communismm regime, as the residents of the Westcliff Parade and the surrounding areas are not allowed to have their views heard. The best capitalist venture would be a musuem in Priory Park and learning resource centre to place and show Saxon King artificates. In my opinion it would be better housed in the Priory Park near the burial place of the Saxon King. The Saxon King is very significant player in the transition from paganism to christianity and all artificates should be kept near where he was found, so there is a connection to were he was buried. This would be a better financial venture and asset for the council, as I believe it would make more revenue for the council as early Christianity places or other places of religious significance makes money in the long term, with a small investment. Just look at the Roman Catholic Church and how much monies the Vatican makes every year, they even have their own bank!!!
