Response Number One


Karl Marx believed that the government should be in control of everything in Russia. Children could work at a very young age (no child labor laws). Nobody would own property. He thought that it would be right to tax you more if you worked more and to tax you less if you didn’t work a lot. Which isn't fair to those you get paid very little and work long hours (someone working a McDonalds) get almost all of their income taxed off. Then those who work very minimum hours and get paid a lot (singer, actor, ect.) get hardly any you their income taxed.
