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.

Adjective form of Communism. Typically used for a person who believes in Communism; A person who belives that the ideal society is stateless, religionless, moneyless and classeless where the means of production (things like farms, shops, factories, roads) are owned by all members of the society, in other words a socialist, anarchist, atheist society. There may be some cases where non Atheists can be communists (such as Christian communist movement).

Like most political definitions, Communism is vaguely defined. Are members of the Chrisitan communist movement communists even though they believe in god? Was the Soviet Union Communist even though it went as far from Anarchism as can be?

What we all agree on however, is that Communists all want to abolish private ownership of the means of production (which doesn't get us anywhere, because Socialism has the same definition). Therefore Communists are fundamentally opposed to Capitalists and Aristocrats/pro-Feudalism peeps.
