Top definition
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.

A title used by members of the political party that is the furthest to the left. A communist believes that the means of production and the fruits of production should be owned and granted to the workers. (Ex. Factory workers producing snow-globes should jointly own the factory and receive all the profit from the snow-globes that are sold, then divided equitably among the workers). The philosophy of communism arose from a man named Karl Marx who lived in the monarchist Germany in the mid-1800s. Europe was home to many unfair societies at the time, where there were a few rich, (the bourgeoisie) and the rest of society were poor, abused, laborers. Karl Marx advocated destroying the rich aristocracy in favor a country filled with only laborers who governed themselves and everybody was equal, socially and financially.
John believes that he and his fellow coal miners should get the foreman fired and proclaim ownership over the mine and should receive all the profits from the coal's sale, and then share it equitably with his fellows. John is a communist.

Like democracy, socialism, marxism, and other forms of government, a form where the ruling class claims to give power to the majority (the people, working class, whatever), while instead, devoting it to themselves.

The concept of communism, just like the concept of democracy, would work fine if it was not corrupt, or if it did what it claimed is stood for.

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.
