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 political system invented by Karl Marx which holds no basis in reality. Marx theorized that a so-called worker's revolution would occur, a socialist government would take place, and the eventual dissolution of the state and property would occur. The system notably failed in almost every country in which it was implemented, save for a few that learned to ignore communist economics altogether (China).

Apologists of the theory commonly argue that, if implemented correctly and man's nature were to be reformed, communism would be the ideal political philosophy; the ultimate utopia. That notion is simply wrong. A simple logical analysis:

1. If everyone were equal, there would be no motivation for elevating oneself in society.

2. Motivation to better oneself has been the main source of innovation throughout history.

3. If everyone were equal, innovation would be at a minimum.

4. If innovation would be at a minimum, technological and scholastic advancement would not occur.

5. If advancement would not occur, we'd be stuck in the past for elongated periods of time.

So no, political ignoramuses. True communism would be terrible, just like "distorted" communism. Let's leave it to the history books.

Some random hippie: WOW Communism in its true form would be great, screw capitalism!

Conceptualized system of human social organization based on the gradual eradication of economic classes through the ages. Because everyone would belong to the same class, it is believed that economic resources and power would as well be equally dispersed throughout society.

So called experiments in communism have been nothing more than mere popular uprisings, replacing the current monopolists on economic resources and political power with a new class of social elite.

A system of government that favors mediocrity, and destroys innovation. Advocated by the extreme zealot liberals who get it into their heads that being wealthy is a "bad" thing.

Everyone does a half-assed job in everything they do (if they work at all) because there is NO incentive to do it well or compete with anyone else. The idea of an enlighted man doing it for the betterment of society is a pipe dream. No one is that big of a tool.
Communism - A friend of mine roomed with a communist and he mooched food, art supplies, and used his stuff without asking. This commi's greatest aspiration is life was to become homeless, because "it's better than having to sell your labor."

A form of society which, good in theory, fails becasue of how stupid and greedy humans are. During the Cold War(1950s-1990s) the American government did all they could to make the American people hate it and that hatred lives on today, mostly in over exaggerated patriotism. The reason why the U.S. and Russia aren't very good friends.

A form of government that sounds fair (like sharing your leftover sandwich with some bum on the street) but often is just hijacked by a small group of elites who promise that the poor lazy types will get to take the property and wealth of the enterprising rich types. In the end history records them as jagoffs: Stalin, Castro, Kim Il Sung, Mao Tse Tug, Ho Chi Minh were all "Communists" that in real life were probably among the richest people on earth... now how could that possibly happen in a "Communist" country?
Communism makes people feel compassion for their fellow man but there has yet to be a TRUE Communist state even attempted. Though to be honest if I were in a TRUE Communist state I sure wouldn't work very hard, cause really, why should I? I'm owed stuff by my Communist government. Gimme!
