Communism made more sense in the brutal industrial conditions of the 19th century than it does nowadays. It failed to take into account the possibility that the products of factory labour would actually benefit the working class in the end (as it clearly has), thus ameliorating conditions so far as to make revolution seem an extreme solution to what is (nowadays) only a relatively minor problem of patchwork poverty. I'm afraid advanced capitalism wins hands down over the appealing but rather contrived communist theory of economics.
Homer Simpson 'In theory Communism works, in theory'
Its a nice idea however i think 'the system' has gone too far for Commies to make a come back.
