Well,
Communism has never worked out, because it has never actually been in place properly. What we think is Communism, is actually a skewed version of Communism, because people are not even equal if there is a dictator in place. I mean Communism in Russia was just used as a tool to control the proletarat.

I think I would choose Communism though, because Jesus was probably more of a Communist than a Capitalist and if Communism was carried out correctly it would be a lot better. (I'm not a Christian btw)

I don't think Capitalism is sustainable at all, it just fuels the greed mentality and just brainwashes everyone to buy. It turns Christmas time into something evil and encourages everyone to compete with each other at the price of health (fast food chains), the environment (using up more resources making more and more crap.) and our morals, among other things. So Capitalism doesn't seem like the way to progression.

If people are getting their 'communism will never work' views from History lessons, sorry to tell you but we're being taught about communism in an incredibly biased, propaganda-fueled way (we do live in a capitalist society after all).

I don't know enough about it to fully say I'm a communist, but it IS the only ideology that benefits all of us. Just look at Cuba...
Hear, hear.
History for us was written by Capitalists. Therefore, we don't know whether Communism has been successful or would have been successful. Of course our government would say, 'everything is great now in Capitalism, people have free speech and it is much better than Communism', because they are Capitalists.

If humans were robots, obviously Communism :indiff: But they aren't, so Capitalism.
Communism is to far left but over rigorous capitalism makes everything a winer takes all game

Communism is fair, but doesn't conform with human nature. Capitalism is the reverse.
Capitalism gives you many many opportunities, therefore it is fair. It's a meritocracy. Inheritance and inheriting businesses, cronyism aren't a part of capitalism. It's just a part of the modern adaptation of it

Please, go to Romania, an ex-communist country that is still ravaged by the spectre of communism. Their government is openly corrupt still, look at communist housing blocks. They're all made of concrete, they have little to no ventilation, rarely have working boilers. In winter they're freezing and in summer they're boiling. Constant power outages, cramped. It smells of damp and sewage. With no ventilation, that smell of sewage fills the room. Kitchen doesn't get ventilated, so cooking will heat the entire apartment right up. Mold infestations. Oh yeah, your internet? Those cables are just laying on the floor and hanging through doorways.
Venezeula aren't even communist, and they've got thousands dying of starvation :/
Look up gulags.
Look up the death tolls under communism.
