    Is this Marxist communism, or Stalinist? If it's Marxist: Free food! Free education! Free Healthcare! Free houses! No 1% or 99%? Count me in!

      Irrelevant, communism preaches a egalitarian utopia that can only be realized theoretically. Whens the last time that police officers took away friends and family for reasons unknown? Those who favor communism have no education as to what its actual implications are. Its fundamentally flawed by not rewarding individual innovation.

      I actually would like to be in the middle. Not capitalist in the terms it is working nowadays (is disastrous) , but more like the first liberalism and with the wellfare state of keynes. And about communism i like the importance marx gives to the working classes because they truly are the ones that support the country.. However, i wouldn't like a "dictatorship of the proletariat" , and i absolutely don't agree with the stalinist communism because they but the focus on the "homus economicus" and they forget about other factors that contribute to the organization of a country... no everything should be reduced to the economy, which is the big mistake not only communists did, but also what capitalism did and what lead us to the financial crisis.. Money has become more important than land, natural resources, etc (which are what humanity cared about before). It's just a PIECE OF PAPER!! ..

      As it wouldn't be under the government of the option, it comes down to personality type. Either cold-hearted, uncaring and profit-oriented but possibly successful, or generous, sharing, charitable but possibly a naive pushover. I know which one I'd rather.

      Communism is a flawed system of government, that has never been proven to work and never will, and where it was attempted to be implemented (USSR, China) the Governments of those nations knew it was flawed, and turned to become State Capitalist. Capitalism has proven to be better than your pie dream communism will ever be for the masses, the people who desire freedom to use their money how they want and to strive to found their own businesses and companies, instead of having the state spoon feed them at the price of other people's work.

      To anyone who thinks that communism is a easily manipulated system of government, let me remind you this.... The Soviet Union just went through a world war, a revolution and the leader of its revolution dyeing of a stroke. I would think that the Soviet Union was pretty disorganized at the time. And after a tyrannical dictator (Joseph Stalin) took over and created what was basically totalitarianism. He then killed Lenin's world revolution and created his quest for world domination. So communism really only lived as long as Lenin was in power. With that said, Just look at all of the failed democratic revolutions, throughout history. Democracy has had try after try to get it right, when communism had only had one. So if you think that "communism is great in theory but would never work" I say "if capitalism is so great, then why did t take so long to get it right!?"

      command economies are highly inefficient although they do have good intentions it's just way too much of a load for a government to handle; they have to regulate everything. EVERYTHING. like how much meat to stock at a local grocery store. how much to pay everyone. i...no. just no. communism doesn't end well.

      Actually, even liberalism is skewed in major ways people who don't study it all their lives don't see because the people in charge of it are in charge of all the media and use scare-tactics to keep the rest in line. Especially the courts, which is the worst part. True communism can't exist just the way true anarchy can't exist - someone always comes out on top. Human nature doesn't allow true communism. Also, first, look at communist countries: none were succesful, even the ones that came close - corruption always wins and everybody not in power suffers. Look at north korea; it basically kills its people who then revere their government like a god. Second, look at the comments: Most of the blues have given thought out, educated answers. The reds are uneducated comments from people who think communism means free money.

      And Lucia Arndt, what you described is exactly communism. With a little hippy mixed in. Here is how governments work. The best/strongest is a theocracy (Rome, Greece, Arabs, Israel) who all last several thousand years. Democracy can't exist for the same reason as anarchy. Republics (yes, USA is one- check the pledge of allegiance, even) last for a long time and are very strong unless corrupt. Monarchies/aristocracies/dictatorships/"Democratic Republics" all don't work because the people suffer and the government undermines the society. Communism always ends up as a dictatorship because somebody wants power, worm-tongues everybody (basically, a sweet talker or great speaker like hitler or obama that everyone agrees with because they sound nice) and takes control.

      Communism does not mean everyone has free resources. It works for a short period of time but then all the people who actually want to work move out. If they didn't move out, then there is still no longer any incentive to do anything or to innovate if you don't benefit.

      communism is okay in theory: no poor people, starvation, etc. However, people want all the wealth for themselves and don't want to work so people doing less work/lesser jobs are their economical equal. I would be okay with the "ideal" communism thought of by Marx, but practically it just doesn't work

      What people don't realize is, America was built so the people could last when the government failed. The introduction of social policies and government run things has caused the government to spend much more (granted it shouldn't be spending as much as we are on military). These policies are also getting people reliant on the government so that when it fails, as all governments do, they fail with the government. Capitalism ensures that people get to keep their stuff know matter how much as long as they can keep it safe. Communism Is a theoretical society in which everyone is equal. for this to be true in the world, it must be controlled by one thing. The government must own everything. This makes people reliant on that government, and if the government successfully controls everything there will still be a minority with much power, like in capitalism.If a communist government fails, more people are likely to get hurt than in a capitalist one.

      Capitalism also encourages economic growth through competition. Communism through government requirements. People are more competitive than compliant which is why capitalism works better in that respect. Capitalism also allows personal growth rather than equality, which sounds much better. In a capitalist society you have the possibility to get rich and powerful. In a communist society those chance are lowered significantly. In a pure communist society you have no chance at all.

    I'm understanding the caption to mean that communism wouldn't lead to all of the governmental problems which make it inviable in the real world.

      The problems still exist. Look at it this way. If you are a farmer and you are told by the government to farm corn and you will be given everything you need to survive, you say ok cool and farm corn. Soon you realize that you get the same amount of money (or necessities) no matter how much corn you harvest. You stop worrying about the pests destroying your crops and you do not care about the recent droughts and you give less and less corn to the government and receive the same amount of sustenance in return. All farmers realize this along with all of the other workers and artisans. Soon the government is not getting enough supplies/food to support its people. "Oh No! a rebellion! We must repress it or we will lose power." Due to this, it is impossible to have a communist government without an oppressive government. Not to mention you're all starving to death thanks to the farmer's with no more ambition. Therefore this entire question is invalid.

      No, Timothy, that's not what it's about. Why would you do anything if there was no reward for it? You get to subsist on an extremely limited set of government provisions, and have no choice as to what products you purchase. It's economically retarded.

      Communism will always lead to inherent laziness because it lacks personal motivations. Why would you want to suffer through medical school to earn the same as a janitor? Capitalism is a consumer driven economy which emphasizes ambition and rewards the hardworking.

    Communism can work and will be more effective in the future allowing for a communist country where the government doesn't need to control as much. For example if a country has to produce everything from food to appliances it will be hard for the government to keep track whereas a true communist society has everything in the hands of the government and then hands local power to local authorities (I live in Britain so in this example each county would control its needs), also the advancement in technology will make it even more easy for a communist system to work, for example, 3D printers have recently been developed which in a few years will be available to the wider public, with this technology the people of a country can decide on what they want and get it when they want, this will alleviate pressure on the government and the only areas that the government would then have control over would be the energy, transport, food, sewage, and other areas of government that are basically necessary for our modern lives. Just to finish off and to respond to anyone who says that it is not possible because it has never worked, here are two main reasons that communist governments haven't be able to do what they set out to do. Firstly the works of Karl Marx state that a country has to have had a good dose of industrial capitalism before it transfers to the final stage of human social evolution towards communism, as capitalism generates huge quantities of wealth but that eventually the wealth will be horded in the hands of a few, that governments will become corrupt and implement laws that benefit wealthy capitalists and will start to do more harm than good, this includes the socio-economic effects of a growing working class, high unemployment, rises in living costs, wage freezes and/or reductions, removal of state run corporations that benefitted the majority of the people (in Britain such as the rail and energy firms being privatised under Thatcher and the NHS which is slowly being privatised as we speak) and the constant barrage of economic downturns, busts, recessions and depressions. This will cause the working class to overthrow their oppressive capitalist class and establish a communist system in its place, but countries such as Russia, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Korea all had feudal systems where either a Monarch or a Dictator was in power and either had never experienced industrial capitalism or never had enough of it before they established a communist government, that is why they became state capitalist to overcome this mistake but without free market capitalism the idea was due to fail because the state still had a say in how most things were run, the system has to be in the hands of the people until it gets hijacked by wealthy minorities and then is placed in the states hands to benefit the entire population. Secondly true full blooded communism cannot be achieved before a world revolution. This does not mean every country in the world has to become communist but that enough strong wealthy countries become communist that they can resist any external attempt at toppling their system. Take Cuba for example which after declaring itself as a communist state it has had an attempted invasion, many planned invasions were made to topple the Castro government, endless assassination attempts on the Castro brothers and their ministers, covert operations such as a recent attempt by the USA to use a radio station to spread anti-communist and anti-Castro propaganda to the people of Cuba and a trade blockade with the USA that has crippled the Cuban economy and caused over a $1 trillion dollars in damage to Cuba's economy. So the point of having enough strong nations that can resist attacks like the ones I previously mentioned will allow the communist system and people to flourish and eventually surpass the benefits of capitalism which will ultimately result in people from capitalist nations overthrowing their capitalist governments to achieve the same level of personal equality and prosperity. Also as a final response to anyone who says that capitalism is a successful system and it is the best and benefits everyone who follows it, go tell that to a homeless person, someone who is starving in the streets, go to Africa and see how many people are suffering there from poverty (mostly because they HAVE to export their food in order to pay off their debts which can never be paid off because the interest on the debt keeps rising, and this causes people to starve to death even if they are growing food), go to Latin and South America where capitalism has encouraged the establishment of drug cartels and criminal organisations that kill and force people into work for a profit, the countless dictators that have been installed around the world because the previous government did not abide by the rules set by the world superpowers such as allowing western businesses to exploit their national resources and cheap labour and tax havens, the countless wars that have been initiated for profit and nothing more. And finally the problems within the United States itself, 13% of houses in the US are empty, most people of America will blindly follow their country into a war because of blind patriotism instead of facts, one out of five men between the ages of 25 and 54 do not have a job, the national debt of the US is the highest in the world at over $16 trillion and still rising, the US has more people in its prisons than anywhere else in the world with 716 per 100,000 people, this is higher than Russia (484) Cuba (510) Iran (284) and China (121 or 170). So capitalism has some flaws and quite major ones, so anyone looking to put down communism while waving an American flag shouting 'Merica should look into both of these ideologies equally and judge for yourself instead of choosing which one is best based on what your parents, family members, friends and/or the media tell your, because they will give you an opinion and not facts.

And by saying capitalists have shitty lives, I assume your saying that if communism wont make lives shitty. If so I would kindly tell you to "get your shit together"

      To Brage, not the entire 99% have a shitty life. But a more even distribution of wealth, i.e., moving money and income from the Bill Gateses and Jeff Bezoses of the world and to those who don't have food on their plate or a roof over their heads, that doesn't seem so bad, does it? The richest people in the country don't even seem to spend most of their money, so why not put it to better use by helping those who need it more?

    Anarcho-communism is the best, but Marxist-Leninism follows as a close second, as long the sanctity of the peoples' council remains (the soviets). Communism has nothing to do with secret police crap, it's an economic model, not a set of laws. Stalinism is nothing more than red-faced fascism; effectively highly centralized state capitalism.

    Capitalism works by effectively enslaving the 99%. Instead of being given a home and food, you are given tokens (money) to exchange for those things. Communism doesn't work, but it's closer to the ideal than capitalism. We need to adopt a global resource-based economy (Google it) and instate true equality throughout humanity.

      Equal opportunity and equal outcomes do not mix. Capitalism is more equitable than communism, in which the big guys (the government) get all the money, where the "99%" get the same, yet very small amount of money. Truly communism is a fair and compassionate ideology.
