Communism in a nut shell is everyone being equal, yes it seems very very nice and all but that means if you're a doctor you'd get the same pay as a cleaning person. On paper it seems very nice but in reality it would not work as that means everyone would get the same thing, same conditions, same treatments and means no classes and no one has power over anyone other than officials.
Great on paper. In reality it will always be a disaster, cos human nature.

CALLING ALL POLITICIANS AND SOCIOLOGISTS!
Our generation is made up of so many revolutionaries that have so many forward-thinking ideas. one of the most controversial of them all is of course communism. Now, I've read the manifesto (skimmed!) and I don't know whether communism would work out in practice. on paper, it seems like the ideal situation but I'm not sure how this would work in today's society. Can anyone shed some light on this?? All ideas welcome
Well we already have a good chunk of the demands made in the communist manifesto.
I think it has become evident from history that the Marxist-Lennist strategy for developing communism will not work. That isn't the only proposed route however.

To be honest, no leader would give away their power in the face of Communism.
Communism just won't work and never wil, too extreme.
It could work, but it should start off as socialism, then move onto communism. Going into communism like Russia did in 1917 will mean many people will have to die in order to meet the needs.
However, people in Britain generally like to own things. The communists today are not like the communists of Marx's day, they are more "progressive" and don't like a lot of the policies of the Soviet Union.
