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 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.

A Grrrreat idea! Government introduced when the people of North Korea and Cuba learned from the capitalist pigs of the United States that democracy only looks good on paper.

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
