Communism is a socioeconomic structure and political ideology that promotes the establishment of an egalitarian, classless, stateless society based on common ownership and control of the means of production and property in general.
"The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property." - Karl Marx

Communism is a collectivist Utilitarian socio-economic political philosophy. Authoritarian in nature, Communism seeks to abolish private property, social classes, racism, religion, and nationalism. Communist states establish a bureacratic command economy in which the means of production are owned and operated by the state. Thus the main responsibility of the Communist state is to allocate and redistribute resources and products so as to create a society in which all resources are distributed evenly throughout the populous.
The Soviet Union practiced an offshoot of Marxism that can be referred to as Authoritarian Communism.

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.

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.

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.
