Varying degrees of the same system that rely on the labor theory of market. That theory states that labor is worth something, not tied to the good or service that it produces. Because of that idea, we should pay people more money than it takes to produce an item because they want more money. This fails economically because if everyone wants more money for their work, all items inflate in cost, so you can't afford what you couldn't afford before, except now it's much more expensive than it was, because you have more money but still not enough to buy it. Basically, socialism and communism are a party trick to get the poor to feel better about the fact that life is competitive and they are losing the game. This is also popular with the rich because it makes them seem kind to the poor. Nobody actually wants to implement socialism or communism, they just want to redistribute goods and services and money from those that have it to those that don't and are willing to lose out in the long term for a short term gain.
I used to hate Amazon.com because of communism and socialism, but now I realize that I didn't want to pay more for goods or shipping so I am comfortable with them fucking their employees, because they are doing it for me.

Totalitarianism. (also national socialism,fascism,international socialism,corporate welfare/coporate socialism,the UN,etc)

Total utter bullshit.

Gay.

Some assholes must finance this bullshit.Hmmm,who could possibly finance these types of globalist fun and games and social engineering experiments? Hmmm,who could it be...who has the money to finance this bullfuckingshit?

Rich people.That's who.BILLIONAIRES ->Capitalists!!!!!
Communism and socialism are gay fantasies of the globalists (elitists).

Communism = rich people telling the poor people to kill the middle class so that the poor people can rule and share the wealth (or more like share the poverty because the rich will still be rich and still rule,and the poor will still be poor...they just got your dumb ass to kill their enemy,the middle class...now they own your poor ass and you're their slave,congratulations,fucktard!)....

socialism is just communism minus the revolutions,
in other words the government is just slowly implementing it and slowly conditioning your dumb ass to accept it (let me put it into a digestible soundbite for you, "Mr.Gorbachev,tear down this wall"...that means that the marxist/communist revolutionary approach failed but conditioning people to accept it works much better!)

either way you will eventually become a total slave and lose all of your rights

i guess "fuck you rich college faggots Kill hippies!!!" is some paranoid middle class person (no, i will not resort to pointless swearing) who contradicts themself at every possible opportunity. firstly, you cannot properly define socialism because it can take so many other forms. secondly, communism has never been achieved. humans are not set up to create a communist government because we are selfish, among other things. i could go on, as the crap that you wrote is wrong but i won't go into details or i would end up writing a novel.
the guy im talking about says "fuck you rich college faggots" yet he is probaly republican/right-wing and probably supports bush who only got through college because he is rich. communism and socialism.

Two quite different processes with the core idea that the government should help organize society to make day to day life easier on common people and to create a more equal society. Socialism says capitalism is a necessary evil so any governmental influence must be built around somewhat free capitalism. Communism says that capitalism is an unnecessary evil that corrupts society, so it totally replaces capitalism with a working class utopia of sharing and caring that invariably turns into a totalitarian regime that terrorizes its citizens into working whenever things go wrong.

Currently, most of the really smart communists are staying quiet and moving to the field of robotics in the hope that once society is sufficiently automated they can implement universal basic income and declare pyrrhic victory.
Communism and socialism are never used in just one sentence - people always have to go on and on about them.
