A person who believes in a stateless, moneyless, and classless society. Communism is the final stage of societal development according to Marx after socialism. Though both are leftists and collectivists, socialists and communists are rather different. Socialists advocate for the means of production to be owned by the workers.
Contrary to popular belief: China and the DPRK are not communists. Their state ownership of the means of production has given communists a bad name.

Someone whose mother never taught him that money doesn't grow on trees.
Communism only works for ants, bees and mole rats. Introduce any individuality into the economic system and it breaks down to form anarchy or totalitarianism. No communist system has ever worked in practice.

People believe that communism is not having to work for your money. This is wrong, a Communist State is when people are forced to work for their Government. They get paid through distributed food and get given a house. Most houses are not much different in communism everyone has the same thing. Most telecom is disabled so you cannot have communication with other country's to know wether or not their is a better country out their. So the only thing you were born with and know is Communism.

A political and economic system that rejects the concept of personal ownership of property in favour of having all the wealth in the government's hands, and supplying necessary, and possibly luxury, goods to the population according to the individual's, and the mass's, needs.

This system is inefficient on a larger scale because of greediness and sloth, as in, many people taking more than they need and giving less than they can, although in a Kibbutz, or commune, this system is fairly efficient when coupled with some lenience regarding personal property (As in, allowing the capitalist based system of currency, but still keeping the economy run exclusively by the Kibbutz or commune management).
"To each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs" ~ Exert from the Communist Manifesto.

The communist party garners the working class vote through promises of equality.

The communists are overthrowing the capitalist government.
