A politcial theory where every person in a society is equal, given all life needs (food, shelter, ect.) equally, and where there is no central governing body or group opf people (hard to have everyone be equal with a few leaders telling the masses what to do).

In theory, the most utopian and 'perfect' of the 3 major social forms.

In practice, can never effectivly happen in practice mainly because tghe average human being needs and desires asome sort of governing structure, whether it be very strict (See facisim ) or very loosly (See anarchist) applied.

This structure tend to fall into a more Socialist social order when applied in the real world. Eventhough the orgionators fo this social order said this structure would be best suited for the large Capitolistic nations of their era (England, USA, ect.), the most noted use of this system was inside the Former Soviet Union and the Peoples Repulic of China.

The Soviet system, though lasting over 7 decades, ended with the country ditching the One Party system for a more Democratic based model after the country practically became bankrupt in 1989. China has grown more Socialist since it's conversion to the Commuinst structure in 1947, mainly do to their laxing, however small, of certain 'communist' ideals for more democratic princliples (such as individualism and ownership of property).

A system that, while looking fine on paper, has yet to be implemented correctly. The base ideology is that all industry and property is controlled by the state, which in turn provides most things to the people. Historically communist states were/are controlled by a dictator like Joseph Stalin or Kim Jong-il, who attempts to generate a cult of personality and downplay the negative traits of their state. Although calling themselves Marxist-Leninist, many of these states are degenerated totalitarian dictatorships, where the common people are subject to mass surveillance and everything is heavily censored. Currently the only communist states left are China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos, and Vietnam.
Mao and Stalin have each racked up death tolls upwards of 50 million people, in the name of creating the "utopian" state of communism envisioned by Karl Marx.

A system of government that is, for all intents and purposes, is fascism in disguise. Like fascists, Communist governments are marked by centralization of authority under a dictator (Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Il), suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship (Joseph Stalin took over countries and removed leaders he deemed "disloyal"), and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism (No racism, but there sure is nationalism). The equality thing for all is one of the biggest coverups in history.
Without Communism, Joseph Stalin wouldn't have killed 10 million people, nuclear weapons wouldn't be nearly as advanced or dangerous (cold war), no Berlin Wall, no Vietnam or Korean wars, no North Koreans working in factories for $3 a month, etc.

communism is a form of government that supposedly eliminates all social and monetary inequality. unfortunetly what many people do not realize is that all private property is no longer yours and everything must be shared. it is not, as many proclaim, a good idea for this reason alone. anyone who believes that everyone should have access to your house, car, food, etc. truly despises you as an individual and cares not for your well being, only theirs. Communism is NOT altruistic or peacable. millions died in Russia because the former business owners and industrialists were moved to the bottom of the food chain, and the peasants rose up to take their place on the social ladder. there was no equality but a social flip-flop that did nothing but prove that communism is nothing but an excuse for moochers.
with the fall of capitalism and rise of communism, there was much less than there was before for there was none with any expertise to control the industries, etc.

An economic system based on the principal that no matter where you work or what your working for, you are still making the same amount of money as everyone else. Probably the most theoretical economic system, but always falls apart when put into practice. This is because the leaders are corrupt, militaristic dictators.
Soviet Union, North Korea, South Vietnam, China... All failed Communist states.
