Comunism is WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS
Look at what happened to the Communist countries THEY ALL FAILED (except for the 3 current ones which I hate)
In communist countries the government controls your life
Why would you want that?
they could kill you just because they wanted to
they could torture you just because they wanted to
enough said

joeyman2, you have misunderstood Communism so much. You are bound for waves of arguments. Why don't you actually read on Communism, instead of looking to the "communist" countries of today and the century which are terrible failures. They are nothing like Communists, communism is equality for all. The people govern the country.

that is not communism, that is more of a dictatorship, communism is where everyone is equal, everyone owns everything, no one is better than anyone else.

Better than being brainwashed in Capitalist America!

That said though, there is no legitimate examples of true Communism. Communism is to utopian for it to ever succeed.

No, in dictatorship this is what happens. In either end of the political spectrum.

Communism is more of a economical idea, even though it has a lot of assassination to violent uprisings and &quotower to the people" patriotism, mostly because of modern communism conducted by Marx, even if his intention are disputed the result is there. Communism does not work. It does not matter if there where never no real communist state, the simply fact of trying to be one is a failure. Although, having communistic (or socialist) elements in a country is crucial and assures the well being of all citizens as long as it's in the left spectrum and not the radical left.

assassination

Not a good "argument" and spam

They are nothing like Communists, communism is equality for all. The people govern the country.

With this idea, communism or rather, true communism, is impossible. The people already govern in some way countries, it's called democracy. If the people truly governed the country, then it would be anarchy, because you need people in higher power to position the country on a pathway. Equality? Where is the equality in taking everything from richer people and give it to the poor? That's not fair for the rich. And that circulation of wealth is bound to cause corruption (as we can see with failed commie states). Taxes are an effective and equal way of helping the poor without hurting the rich, after all, the richer you are, the more you pay, but everyone pays a fair amount, because it's by percentage. So, if we have taxes, why try to redistribute wealth?

Well the idea of communism, as stated above, is impossible. You need some kind of law and order in order to govern the people. You also need people to govern the people because people, when left to their own devices it turns to anarchy. Also, it is not fair for people who have harder jobs and more responsibility to take care of those who freeload off of the system.

Communism has never truly been in place nor will it ever. In places where it has tried (communes namely) on a small basis it has miserably failed.

Yes, I know Communism can never be implemented into real life. I never said it is/was a successful type of government. I could only dream of that. It does seem, in a sense, that communism is like anarchy. There is no government or laws.

In communism it practically requires you to disregard your emotions and motives (that don't have to deal with production and the likes), which is impossible for the human.
