A form of government in which class divisions, possessions, and privately owned property are eliminated. Essentially, everybody is considered equal and issues such as class divisions and poverty are solved. Although the ideal of communism is an excellent idea, it does not work. Wealth is divided up amongst the people, meaning everybody ends up being poor. In addition, communist governments are often run by corrupt politicians such as Stalin, making a small group of people very rich and everybody else poor.
In short, EVERYBODY ENDS UP BEING EQUAL, but in most cases this is EQUALLY POOR AND MISERABLE, and sometimes, people end up being MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS, which does not make sense.
Setting up Communism seemed like a good idea at the time, but a hangover was soon to follow.
