: In class we talked about the way work gets organized in capitalism. It is not democratic but a command system of organization. We saw this in both Norma Rae and Matewan.

I agree with this, according to Sam Bowles capitalist countries work with a command system. The statement that most people work in factories or organizations that are based on command processes. Most people in these factories or situations spend most of their lives receiving orders although they may live in a democratic and capitalist country. They spend most of their time in these other situations so one could say that it would no affect them greatly if the country that they lived in was democratic or more of a command/dictatorship government.
