a)Gerasimov has this theory that the American population human rights are just an illusion. In his opinion, human rights are about: have the opportunity to work, deprived of decent housing, decent education, proper health care, food and security for old age.
Now we know that the communist community gave those rights to their population. So if Gerasimov looks at the American population our values and economic system is very different. But for him if youre not guarantied a job than youre not free at all. But the American government cant guaranty a job for everyone because its economy is based on the capitalist system, which is private property. Mr.
Gersimov is also talking about the homeless people in this richest country by giving the example of homeless people living on the streets of Washington richest neighborhoods. He also talked about the right of free higher education which gave the equal opportunity for everyone to be able to achieve a career goals without depending of youre financial status. In fact he is saying that in the USA, the rich are passing on their predominant positions to their own children. b)I do not agree with the Article 50 at all because I dont believe that citizens were free at all. People were reporting at each other in case you were not acting like a true socialist.
For me this is not true freedom, freedom of speech means you are aloud to say what you think and how you feel and you should not be punished. Also this article 50 is saying that citizens were free to do assembly, meetings, street processions and demonstrations. I dont think the communist party would have let people do meetings against the communist party then this is not true freedom because here for example you are aloud to do so. I dont agree at all with the reasoning of Mr.
Gersimov because have a job for 100% means you make money 100%. But if sure to have a job this doesnt mean that you free, it only gives you a way better life style. Of course they will be homeless people in America because they cant guarantee a job for everyone and that there will be a big gab between rich and poor but youre allowed to say what you feel and vote for whom you wish. Based on those example I feel that Mr.
Gersimov is not telling both side of the story only the one that will make USSR seen better by far. a)You were supposed to like socialism and other socialist countries. You weresuppose to work hard for your society and to be concern for preservation and growth of public wealth. They were also saying that you had a duty; witch was to be intolerant of actions harmful to the public interest.
Also they were promoting that you should love the next like your brother and friend. Honesty, moral purity was always expected from everyone even in your private life. A mutual respect in families was important to give example to the young ones. They were taking some values from the religions even though they didnt believe in them.
One example was love you next like a brother, this line was said some where in the bible. They wanted to make man like the bible described how man should act between each other. Friendship and brotherhood among all people was essential for the type of society they were trying to achieve also racism was not accepted at all. Basically what whey wanted is that people change their morality to the set of rules they gave for a perfect communism, witch means create a perfect communist society.
b)The relationship between these values and the type of citizen that would be required in the future communist society is very easy to understand. The communism is a society base on the word commune witch means a community. If a community is helping each other and working together they must have rules to follow so this society does work and succeed well. The values promoted by the communist party were necessary for the achievement of their goal witch was perfect communism because we all know they didnt go that far at all. USSR were in the stage of socialism witch was just before communism.
The communist party knew that the most important thing for the achievement of communism was to change the way people think and their values, thats the reason those rules were important because they were changing your values and what your been thought. Without these rules there is no way USSR could have a chance one day to become a communist party. In 1961 the communist party wrote its Party Program called The moral code of the builder of communism which shows how people should behave to be able Bibliography:
