For me its a communist anarchy. Which do you prefer? I just love communism but why do you prefer your preference?

If it were my decision alone about which one to have then I suppose by definition it would be a dictatorship.

Anarcho-communism is impossible as you need a vanguard of people in charge to create and maintain 'anarchy'- you have a paradox there.

Democracy, but with smaller parties (even Greens and UKIP, though I dislike both of them) having a greater voice in parliament- introducing proportional representation would help more.

Not really a community knows how to work together without law or government. A community of people with a communist administration etc. I'm a pacifist I don't believe in a vanguard in control.

It could work in individual communities but I don't know how you could apply this in a large scale without destroying the concept of the nation state.

It's a naive idea as it assumes most people would agree with the idea of an anarcho communist society. There are too many capitalists like me in the planet. What do you do with the dissenters?

The only one which has ever proved sustainable is Monarchy, and you haven't even thought about it.

In any case anarcho-communism is a view held by very few people, and I can imagine both capitalists and socialists migrating to other countries, causing a huge brain drain on the anarcho-communist society.

Socialism is not communism.

Socialism is the stage preceding communism in Marx's anthropological theory. Socialists still believe in private property- that's a key difference. Socialist plans for a bigger government is what led to the NHS in 1948. In communism there'd be no government, hence no NHS as we know it.

There would be a state administration and a commonwealth a certain amount of surplus value would go to the administration who would channel it into hospitals etc.
