Communism is the final stage of the political reform started witha revolution, according to Marx. First masses of workers will rebel in a industrialezed country; they will implant a socialist government in order to adapt the country for later changes. After private property is banished, and the people possess everything, thenthere will be no need for government, thus the state will be destroyed, to form a society with no social classes. It important to remember that Marx knew that the mentality of man needed to change in order of this to work. He believe in the concept of the "new man" who was humble and just. It is also important to remeber did not believe in a country alone with this structure, but he believed that the whole world adapt to this change. Given this, it is safe to say that no country has ever achieved communism, and anyone who has a sense of equality do agree with this utopia.
No, Russia was not communist, neither is Cuba.

Something that, in theory, is a good idea. Communism is an ideal that believes that everyone should share everything, so that poverty wouldn't exist, and there wouldn't be a gap between richer and poorer classes. The problem is, communist governments become corrupt, because people are greedy, so it doesn't work.
Person One: Why's that country so messed up?
Person Two: They just got rid of communism, and are now trying to put their country back together.

The life span of communism= 1. valuable observations about the short comings of the free market system.
2. Stupid hypothesis formed to address these observations.
3. Conclusion= David Hassellhoff atop the Berlin Wall and Vladimir Putin's oversized bank account.
Utopia can't be created on Earth. This is why communism is a fundamentally flawed idea.

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!

Someone who's educated: No. Not really.

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."
