1) A totalitarian form of government in which the People form a union where there is no individualism or self-advancement in classes, as there are no classes. Society advances and benefits as a whole. "Invented" by humans back in the Stone Age, but made more sophisticated by Karl Marx around the time of the 1848 Revolutions in Europe.

2) A Revolutionary ideal often represented by the notorious Cuban Revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevara on t-shirts. The people who wear these shirts often have no idea what Communism is really about, have never read a single book about it, and just want to be nonconformist by wearing the said shirt or claiming to be under such a revolutionary ideal.

Notes: No powerful country has ever respected Communism. Communism is often used as the fuel for a Revolution, but is never used the the form of government once the Revolution has taken place.
Communism does not support there being no government, quite the opposite. It supports a Totalitarian form of rule. Anarchy is the ideal of no government and that the wellbeing of the People is based entirely on their conscience.
1- Communism is the purest somewhat form of economy we can have.
2- Look at that guy who supports Communism, he sure does look like a fag.

System of government where everyone is equal and all private property is abolished and given to the government. Sounds like a good idea, but it kinda fails when you notice that a doctor is getting paid the same wage as a janitor and you just surrendered all of your power and property to the government, who can do whatever the hell they want with it.
It's amazing that; despite the fact that all attempts at Communism have resulted in failure and often the slaughter of millions of innocent people, people still support its crackpot ideology.

Equality is not the same as fairness.

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.

A state of government in which the feds tell you what you can and can't do, while they regulate and micromanage every single part of the economy, preventing any prosperity whatsoever. Many liberals support communism without even knowing it, and others try to give it another name such as "Progressivism". Throughout history communism, and Socialism have failed dramatically. Those who suggest that government needs to be part of every aspect of our lives (Liberals) do not realize how dangerous that really is.
Why do immigrants from all over the world come to America and not to Russia or Cuba?

Because even though Capitalism isn't perfect it has proven to be the most prosperous state in the world. Anyone who favors communism should go pay Cuba a visit and see exactly how life in a communist country really is, and why there are thousands of Cubans every year who risk their lives to come to America.

An ideology based essentially on the idea expounded by Karl Marx, that in an ideal society everyone would receive what they needed and would produce according to their capacity. From this idea was elaborated a doctrine whereby a Socialist state would be established that would in time subsume the economic structure of society into itself. At this point the State itself would wither and the new ideal Communist society would emerge. It's surely a beautiful idea on paper, and may even work with small tribal bands ... but just try to apply it to a society made of millions of us naked apes and see what happens.

Marx incidentally suggested that agrarian societies would be more likely to develop in time along such lines; the adoption of Communist doctrine by industrial societies like Leninist-Stalinist Russia may arguably be in itself a perversion of Marx's idea.
Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man. Communism is the exact reverse. - John Gardner

Any man who is not a Communist at the age of twenty is a fool. Any man who is still a Communist at the age of thirty is an even bigger fool. - George Bernard Shaw.

Communism: right idea, wrong species. - Jermaine Evans

The Catholic and the Communist are alike in assuming that an opponent cannot be both intelligent and sincere. - George Orwell.

A Communist is like a crocodile - when it opens its mouth you cannot tell whether it is trying to smile or preparing to eat you up. - Winston Churchill

What every mallgoth, neo-punk, or revolutionist ages 13-20 claims to be to appear different, open-minded, or just controversial. True communism is pretty cool, the idea that everyone is equal, but you have to sacrifice alot: Pretty much everything. One of the founding priciples of communsism is no private ownership, which means that all the people who failed kindergarten because they couldn't share are bumfucked.
I asked some kid in hot topic pants and emo frames if I could borrow his communism t-shirt, but he told me that it's his.

Oh the irony.

A socialist theory advocated by Karl Marx in which the proletariat (working class) tried to attain rights, and fair wages. By abolishing bourgeois (middle class business owners) property the proletariat hoped for equality.
During the Industrial Revolution the proletariat (lower class) were forced to switch from the work they were used to doing, agriculture and farming, to working in factories for the bourgeois (middle class busines owners). They worked sometimes 16-18 hour days and didn't even get paid enough to live. (Which is why from 8 years old and up children were dropping out of school to work full time in the hopes their family wouldn't starve that day. Although kids often got paid 1/10 of what an adult did.) As machines were getting easier to use more people had the skills necessary (none...) to work. Because of this the number of proletariat continued to increase and so the laws made for/by the bourgeois didn't apply to the lower class which was by far, the majority. Karl Marx had a theory and this theory was communism. Marx belief was that by abolishing bourgeois property it would level out the playing field so the proletariat had the chance to prosper, and be functioning members of society.
