Communism, though recently associated with corrupt totalitarian states such as China and The Soviet Union is one of the natural states of human existance, the idea of living in a self-sustaining group that cares for its members, like they did in the Paleolithic (Old Stone Age), which is increasingly hard in the modern world. Most families live in A SORT of communism, as parents USUALLY don't make the kids work for what they eat.

Many societies, such as the Shakers in America, the Incas in Peru, the Essines in Israel, and many Early Christian groups, have practiced forms of communism.
But Communism with Das Kapital C didn't come about until the mid 1800s when Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto, which stated that Society was always going through transitions (the last two being Feudalism, and Capitalism), and that now was the time for a transition into a Socialist economy, which would lead to a classless society, which he called "Communism". Marx recognised the effectiveness of Capitalism, but saw that it was only another step in this chain.

One of the most contraversial points about Modern Communism is that it is vocally Athiest, as Marx had said "Religion is the Opium of The People." This is because Marx's father was forced to convert from Judaism to Christianity in order to get a job in a largely anti-semitic country. Because of this, the young Marx decided that religion was fleeting, and was a tool of the opressor to bind the people. Despite this, many religious-based communistic societies have existed.

In the early 1900s, in Russia, long after marx's death, the Tsar Alexander II had declared war on Japan. Russia, after a devistating defeat in the Russo-Japanese War, and heavy losses in World War I, the people were ready for a new government. Many looked to Marxism. These were lead by intellectuals such as Vladamir Ulyanov "Lenin", and Leon Trotsky. They called themselves the Bolsheviks, and pelieved that the Proletariat, The workers, must triumph in an armed revolution. In 1917, the Tsar was deposed, and followed by a capitalistic Provisional Government. This didn't cut it for the Bolsheviks, and the Bolsheviks soon gained control of Russia.
At first, the new Soviet Union seemed like a genuine Marxist state, but soon an upstart named Josef "Stalin" "The Man of Steel", began his deadly regime, which effectively ended the idea of a just Communist state.

the same thing was played out all over the world in places like China, and Cuba. Corrupt dictators hijacked Communistic ideals and used them for their own personal good.

So thus the great notions of Communism will forever be tainted by the terror of corrupt dictators.
Communism: As long as people will strive to rule over others, there will be no true communist state. -me

a type government often mistaken with socialism,an economic system,it is often compared to capitalism, which is an economic system
I have no idea what im talking about so i'm gonna assume that socialism won't work because communism hasn't.

extreme right wing belief. in communism the government is the only owner of things - the people don't own anything. and everyone works for the government. everyone gets the same amount of money - it doesnt matter if they work in a nuclear power plant or if they're a bum; they get the same amount of money.

communism has yet to actually function in real life. not hard to see y.
i like good ol' democracy. not communism.

A system that works flawlessly as demonstrated by The People's Republic of China. All who opposes this system clearly do not understand this system very well. Under this system, everybody benefits equally. Put into action by former leader of China, Mao or Mao Zedong; he was perhaps the greatest mastermind of all time. Many comrades today are living today because of such wonders this system brings to them and how it works so flawlessly. Mao is truely a great leader and visionary, and communism is truely a great system.
Communism is awesome.
Communism is great.
Communism is flawless.
All who opposes communism shall be "re-educated" so they understand what communism is.
You love communism.

An idea that "punks" who are trying to sound hardcore will wholeheartedly endorse without knowing a fucking thing about it. It was started by Karl Marx, and quickly taken up by rebells across the globe. It eventually came to power under Vladimir Lenin and Leo Trotsky. It soon was turned into a synonym for dictatorship by Stalin and Mao. Eventually, comunist governments either collapsed, like russia, modified, like China and Vietnam and Cuba, or became little rogue nations despised by the rest of the world like North Korea. The one stable government remotely resembling comunism is Venezuela. The truth is, communism is a bad idea, and if you learned about it, you would see that it is almost impossible
Virtually all communism-lead nations have descended into turmoil Capitalism is flawed, but is better
