Ever since Karl Marx's ideas communism has risen and changed in modern times. Ideally it is supposed to make everyone equal so no one has any needs because everyone's needs are met. In reality it is not like that and in modern times you can see the clear distinction between the common citizenry and the elite who are allowed to become very wealthy. The other problem with communism, as I see it, is the lack of diversity. People aren't allowed to excel beyond what their neighbor has or can do otherwise you aren't being a good commie. Let's put it this way, what if the whole world converted to communism, would it really work? I doubt it but I will like to read some arguments from anyone who thinks communism is the ideal political / governing system.
