What is, in the Soviet Union, cruel and brutal criminals were punished with imprisonment sentences, confiscation of citizenship, exile, confiscation of property, and starvation of living infants.
In the United Kingdom, after 5 years of penal servitude, criminals were given the right to have their own offsprings. However, many people were outraged by the fact that non-payment of taxes was observed in the ranks of the English nobility. The capitalist class considered it acceptable, and the middle class benefited from the social services. So, in Europe, the idea of social inequality was dismissed.
The only country in the world which benefited from improvements in the material situation was France, which became one of the richest countries of the world. And the fact that the industrial revolution came from the center of society was considered as the proof of the effectiveness of the measures to transform society. France was able to take the upper hand in the struggle against corruption and to implement their ideas even in opposition to the will of the society, which, in turn, presented the opportunity for the movement of the bourgeoisie to accumulate wealth.
The process of economic progress, which began simultaneously with the English Revolution and continues to this day, was characterized by the gradual positive change of the attitude of society towards the person who resorted to oppression, i.e. the opponent of the throne.
The Jacobin regime in France was especially harsh. What was characteristic for the entire society is the endless battle of landlords and manufacturers against the work of the soil and labor (although it’s also worth writing about the slave-owning aristocracy in France). The number of people employed in agriculture was 1.5 times higher than the number agricultural workers. Non-agricultural industries gave 3/4 of the national income. Because of all these changes, the wage of agricultural workers has grown from 4.5 to 15 million euros.
Of course, some pioneers of the Middle Ages tried to kick the feudal system of wealth. However, the results of their struggle for wealth have been extremely difficult. Hard times were made in the history of the agricultural class in the American West.
The Western idea of the times was characterized by the productivity of the soil, the abundance of mobile and land resources. The industrial bourgeoisie subjected the workers to cruel exploitation, kept them on a “starvation ration”, enriched themselves, and the property gap between the two classes increased.
The cause of the Middle Ages in the United States is the content of the slave-owning aristocracy, which, in the course of the revolutionary struggle, gained wealth and came from the lower strata. The democratic bourgeoisie confiscated the property of the free black population, established a low-class employment and social protection fund.
Although the workers could not directly challenge the right of the lord to dispose of the land given by the slaves, they implicitly acknowledged his authority. The natural freedom of the slave was strengthened by the rigid control of social behavior. In the period of individual freedom, the economic imbalance between the two classes increased.
The free-market economy, which emerged from the activities of the economy, marketed freely. The product of this era was the soil on which the workers harvested. The cheapness of the labor market was directly opposite the experience of the work of the mass media, media, and state institutions, which were created and developed by the efforts of the mass media.
The imbalance between the classes was maintained. The labor of the rich and the poor classes increased. The share of the labor force employed in agriculture increased. The social and economic imbalance of the two classes increased.
Stress in “Human rights and development” essay that the idea of equality meant the abolition of feudal privileges and the establishment of equal competition the economic basis of which was the economy. In England, France, Germany, Italy, Thailand, Turkey, the number of laborers employed in agriculture is 10.5 times higher than the number agricultural workers.
Social and economic progress, as well as the “Decade of Prosperity” in the United States, were made on the basis of the democratic system and the principle of meritocracy. The economy has successive cycles – a static or dynamic ratio between the changes of the economy and the level of its development.
As the first example, in the 1920s, the United States of America did not have enough money to buy a modern automobile. The car was bought for $6000. The debtor, in turn, was given a huge sum of money for the car. The economy of these industries was fueled by the unlimited creation of cheap and effective workforce (content 3).
The process of economic growth was alternated with the growth of inequality. As the middle class grew, the number of Americans in the upper economic groups increased. As the outcome, the wages of American workers have grown significantly. During this period, the wages of the lowest class doubled.
The middle class reached 60% of the population. As for the distribution of increased material wealth between different economic classes, there were mixed and contradictory trends.
