You are forgetting that the businesses too are mainly independent of the government, with the exception of corporations, who choose what they do based on stock holders and the government. this means it is also in the businesses best interest to choose what to do with their product. if the people wanted guns, the businesses could choose not to give them if it meant harm to the business. it also depends on what reason the people would want the guns. in the United States, as long as you have the license and a legally allowed to purchase a gun, you can purchase a gun. to even receive a gun permit you need to go through multiple tests to see if it is even a good idea to give them the permit. if the people want either the drugs or the weapons, they will break the laws put in place to keep the peace and get them illegally. at this point, it does not matter if the economy is capitalist or communist, the person would be punished in either one. and with communism, the people might want to get the weapons illegally so that they could get more of their "share" of the pile that the government gives them.
it has also been found throughout history that people strive to make themselves have more than the next person. with communism, even though it gives everyone equal amounts, there is no reason to work more than the next person. this leaves the economy in the lowest 70% that the economy is capable of, compared to a capitalist economy, which is at a much higher output per capita.
if people start to revolt also, the economy will bend to their needs, and eventually improve their income and way of living.
First things first, capitalism is an economic system based on private ownership of goods and businesses. It gives people freedom to use their money how they want to and let them purchase what they want. It was first thought up of from Karl Marx, in his writings.
The benefits of capitalism are of a large amount. The system allows people to get what they want, and control the economy this way. The economy moves with the people’s demands. This can be seen in the United States market. There are also many forms of capitalism, which can be implemented in the right places for the country. This was seen when countries used mercantilism, all the way back into the roman era.
Capitalism also has a strong “base” to work from. What this means, is that if one part of the economy broke down, the market would naturally be able to solve the problem, with all of the businesses in that area. If the same thing happened to communism, since only the government controls everything, there would be nothing left for the economy to hang on to.
Capitalism also provides an award system. This gives workers incentive to work hard and drive the economy. In communism, there is no drive for the people, since they will all get the same amount anyways.
In my opinion, the capitalist way of running a country provides a greater output, more organized, and has a strong base where the communism lacks in.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
