In a world as evolved and enormous as today’s, a striking question is whether we as humans can ever go back to a simple lifestyle. The simple answer is no; no matter how desirable and nostalgic a world without all the gadgets is. Ever since the industrial revolution, the world has run almost solely on industrial capitalism. The idea of a perfect socialist society with complete fairness and equality in its entirety is only found on TV shows like HBO’s Walking Dead. The world would need a substantial calamity and vast chaos causing a group of survivors to be forced to create their own society; in which fairness and equality might have a chance at success. Yet when given fairness and equality, will the people of that country become poorer or will …show more content…
Whether it was peace through Ghandi, hatred through Hitler, love through Michael Jackson, or even greatness through Michael Jordan, history has showed us all there is to see with the human race. Now if we scaled these types of humans throughout history into people of one country, we would get a fair representation of the world we live in. Each country has its peacemakers, war makers, lovers, haters, superstars, and the list goes on and on. Yet the most important thing to notice here is the fact that there are always fallacious people in every society. In simpler terms, no matter how many good people are, there will always be the bad ones. In a society consisting of fairness and equality, these people will always want more of everything, which in turn completely destroys the concept the society is imposing. This is because the true nature of humans is greed, selfishness, and jealousy. Don’t get me wrong humans do also have positive qualities like love, compassion, and much more.

Whether it is after a long day at school, a busy day in the office, or even just a dismal rainy day, humans have the tendency of being lazy. If a country decided to dictate under the rule of equality and fairness, every person would be given the same abundance of goods as the next. The typical couch potato who works a 9-5 shift which he detests with every ounce of his being, would one day sit and think during a Geico commercial, “Why would I need to work if the government is just going to give me the same as everyone else?” The more he thinks about it, the more he realizes that he doesn’t really need to do anything because he will be rewarded with the same goods as the rest of the population. He then goes on to quit his job and spend his days watching movies and playing video games while receiving the same benefits as everyone else. If one person in a country thought like this, the government would be just fine. But what if a percentage of the population thought the same? What if others started realizing that the government can give them everything they need, so there is almost no point in working or contributing? When people realize that no matter how much effort they put forth towards the government in a socialist society, they will get the same outcome either way. Thus when more and more people don’t contribute and give for the country, the country will have nothing to give back to them. In a socialist society, the
