The idea of communism works, im agree. But! no one yet in history has made a country comunist, when a comunist leader gets all the power of a country he doesnt want to give it away so he uses the idea of communism to make a dictatorship.

Karl Marx was the guy that invented communism and he got kicked out of many countrie because of that, because they knew that from communism it goes directly to dictatorship.

It be nice if there ever was communism but no one in this world will be equal at the end.

In theory Communism works and very well I might add. But the leaders 99% of the time go power mad and turn it into a dictatorship.

Democracy is really the only way the people as a whole can keep the power. o/o/o/

For now, but maybe one day it could work in a world where everyone truly saw each other as equal.

In a world like that would government even be necessary?
Communism is a great theory, but it is impossible to implement due to human nature.

Karl Marx did not invent Communism. He invented Marxism. There is a very distinct difference between the two. This mainly deals with who/how the wealth is spent. Instead of getting into the details, I will give my personal opinion (lol). Communism does not work because it cannot be controlled beyond information. Ignorance of necessity is what causes its downfall. Marxism calls for representation of the masses in decision making. Marxism may work, but only if no one has greed, or lethargy, or any other character problem. (good luck)

Communism, in its orginal sense of living in a commune, works excellently. For everyone to share everything, for no one to have more then anyone else, to share the power or governenence with everyone... that is perfection. But humans can never attain perfection, so the idea intself is flawed, and as everyone else has pointed out, due to human nature, it is impossible. Selfish beings we are, and if one is selfish, one cannot share rightfully.

What happens when there is something indivisable and bound to its owner which everyone wants but hardly anyone can supply? How do they share that? I think communisim doesn't work for more reasons than just human nature.

I think the entire concept of Communism is perfectly laid out, except for one element the Human element. The sad truth is that a large number of humans are greedy, and cruel, and shallow, and a bunch of other things. So Communism would only work if humans were not as greedy, and cruel, and shallow. Or if there was some other species that isn't as ignorant.
