An Incentive to WorkI've been told time and time again that Communism won't work because there's no incentive to work hard. If everybody gets paid the same amount, why would anybody bother becoming a doctor, lawyer, or scientist?More Like This
Because the people who tell me this always think that everything we do is for money. However, this is not so. Perhaps the Scientist studies science because they like to. Perhaps the doctor studies medicine because they like to help people, or because they like medical research. Perhaps the Lawyer likes to help people and is interested in law. See, while greed is a natural human instinct, we must remember that we don't live and do everything we do solely to make money. After all, the majority of people who have sex(and don't procreate) don't make money off of it, and yet they continue doing it. Most people don't get paid to sit around and play video games. And nobody gets paid to do volunteer work. So why do they do it? Because they like to. Because they like to help, in some case

Finally, in 1964, Lyndon Baines Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Now that was 48 years ago, but discrimination continues to this very day, and will continue into the future. Even now, racism is widely used in the media. We only showcase the African Americans that are stupid and goofy. It's a modern day mistral show, and it needs to end now. Stereotypes need to end. Not all Asians are nerds, perverts,
