Thought id start a thread about what works better. In cases it shows Communism works if everyone sticks to it and doesnt go off on there own the the Kulags in Russia who were killed.

to suppress people: communism. to give people a chance for greater things: democracy.

Communism can't work. It goes against human nature.

Democracy ives people freedom and power to govern themselves. Communism leads to teh downfall of the counry because everyone is controlled. If a guy does a certain job, but another guy does a better job, they get payed the same amount and stuff so they will start working less hard.

In theory, communism is the best government around.

In practice, democracy is the best we've found.

Russia, which tried to impliment Communism (but didn't), supressed people because its government wasn't working. In true Communism, everyone works for the common good, and opression is not needed to keep everyone in line. Too bad that will never, ever be possible.

Communism done right is not all bad. I would like to see a theoretical re-run of the Soviet Union, without the cold war. It would be very interesting to see if communism could have flourished without the massive external pressures from NATO.

I think the ideal combination is one where freedom of trade and speech is not hampered, yet essential services are government controlled.

Communism can never work, and its so simple to understan how it wouldnt work. True communism believes that everyone works and that everyone gets the same pay the same land the same everything so eveyone is equal, but that sounds really nice and all but it cant work. One thing that could happen, Soon people start to realize that even if they dont work they would still get the same pay and stay the same so then nobody works because they realize they dont have to work anymore. With no one (or very few) working the government doesnt get any money then nobody gets anything. Another thing that could happen like. (Absolute power corrupts absolute power corrupts absoluty) so eventually the government gets greedy and starts taking away more of what the people can and cant do untill the people dont know any better and the country falls apart. Yet another thing that can go wrong. with communism nobody owns anything, just the government so the government can take away anything and the person who they took it away from looses nothing because he had nothing to begin with.

now there are many more things wrong with communism, just like there are many things wrong with democracy

i forgot who said this but someone said that

Democracy is one of the worst forms of government that there is... but its the best we've got

so im not saying democracy is perfect because it is the opposite im just saying that it is better than communism
