    Honestly, I think communism/socialism/marxism is a perfect utopia. Of course, it wouldn't work on a large scale, as people will want rights and powers based on their own personal skills, not the skills of society as a whole.

    Basically, people will become greedy and work only for rewards for themselves. Society technically would flourish in perfect equality. At least in my opinion.

    I used to dig the idea of nationalization, but after a good deal of thought I came to the realization that taking the power from the corporations and placing it in the hands of the government doesn't eliminate tyranny, but simply allows the government to exercise it far more easily should the individuals in charge please to do so. :Thumbd:

    First, Communism is the perfect government, i.e. NO government. Remember, Marx originally intended for people to "ease" into Marxism (which just became Communism later) by way of a small group of people. Unfortunately, Lenin (I think... lemme check my World History notes) didn't have any information to go by when he actually SET UP the group.
    Then there is the other side of the story. The part where humans just can't live with the idea of "all equal". In other words, no motivation, no innovations. Competition drives humans.
    In Communism, there is no competition.
    This is a side note, but doesn't "utopia" mean something like "no government"?
    Maybe I'll come up eith a sig soon... until then, be patient.

    On paper it looks good....
    but not in reality.

    Human's are selfish.

    You don't have to teach a kid to protect his toys, you have to teach him to share.

    The thing about Greed is it is something that can be controlled by the people within the group.

    What it comes down to is that the initial stages of a group how lay out a socialistic or otherwise society need to reinforce their ideals just as capitalism has done.
