    Again, another very debatable topic.

    Communism, in theory, is awesome. Infinitely better than capitalism. However, in practice it never works, due to basic human greed.

    It would be good, if it were not for the flaws. Every government has its flaws but communism is not very well put together and the flaws are much more drastic than in other types of government. Everything in my oppinion has its own advantages though.

    I think it's an excellent form of government, but it has one major flaw and that's the human factor which makes it almost unattainable.

    I still think it's an excellent theory.

    yeh, I agree. when written down on paper, it seems perfect.

    but then you put it in to action and...eh, it all goes down hill from there.

    I think that the idea makes a lot of sense, the only reason it does not work is because there is too much room for corruption and people abuse the system. It effectively creates a 'level playing field' for everyone that is under it. In a perfect world without people always seeking to be better than one another, it would be very effective.

    Basically what everyone said already.

    In theory its perfect, but corrupt leaders ruin the whole system, so in reality it isn't beneficial

    Communism is certaintly not evil, and is excellent in theory, but as people have said before, it is the basic desire of man that atleast one person in the system willt ry and abuse it. Also, int he past there have been 1 or 2 communist governments that have worked, but alot fo other times they failed miserably and alot fo those times were because the communist government was mixed with a dictatorship, which is a complete hypocricy of what a communist government is supposed to be.

    One major flaw I see in communist governments though, is that if everyone is equal there is no insentive to exceed at what you do. If there are 3 farmers and one grows really big, good crops and the other are just average, they are all stil equal because of the views of the communist government. but then again, every system has it's flaws.

    It's almost the perfect solution to the worlds problems....on paper, however it can never work.
