    I agree. If Communism actually took everything (food, supplies, technology, etc. No need for money!) and distributed it evenly to the people, then it would prolly work. But, Communist governments seem to take everything and keep most of it for an elite few, and give the rest a somewhat equal share of what's left over, which usually isn't much. Therefore, Communism is indeed corrupted by human greed.

    True communism like it was said, has no government, no currency, no big corperations, no unemployment. People still work, but instead of having to go and find food, they just get it. This works in a small, selfessless society, but since when has OUR society ever been blessed with such luck? An idea too perfect for humans. It's been demonstated many many times.

    Communism has and always will fail, because it is not in line with human nature. As for it being "perfect" and "utopian", that's just what I'd expect from a bunch of leftists. The fact is the communism is flawed and imperfect on many levels ultimately because it removes any incentive to improve oneself.

    I believe it is a pretty good idea, and a hopeful ideal, but extremely tought to implement.

    "Commun"ism only works when it is voluntary. The instant it is enforced it is corrupted. Human nature dictates it will never work in this world. There will always be someone waiting to take power and to abuse it. That's the problem. Communism has no checks and balances outside of an uncorrupt leadership and since "absolute power corrupts absolutely".....


    Communism

    1) A theoretical economic system characterized by the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.

    2) Communism
    1. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
    2. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat

    Utopia

    1) 1. often Utopia An ideally perfect place, especially in its social, political, and moral aspects.
    2. A work of fiction describing a utopia.

    2) An impractical, idealistic scheme for social and political reform

    I've always thought that Communism and Socialism are a great idea...and just as that: an idea. Like Tychodies said, it's simply not in line with human nature, though its always great to dream about the idealistic future that it would make.

    Ummm... the Marxist idea of Communism has NO government. I don't see how you can enforce the isea of "all equal". Marx just saw that all people had specialties, and wanted to bring that out. Problem is, most people just won't work hard unless they have some form of incentive. And "You'll get the same as the trash man" isn't much of an incentive.
    Maybe I'll come up eith a sig soon... until then, be patient.
