That hierarchy is actually very un-commy. The inventors of communism would turn in their graves if they knew what has become of their child and what crimes have been committed in its name.

I guess that is usually the way it turns out, though, as humans are not ready for modesty, self-control, etc. And I guess that won't change for quite some time.

In China communism and capitalism coexist now because the former is an ideology and the latter is an economic concept.
Show us where communism has worked by itself.
Your association is biased. As I said, communism is not responsible for the crimes committed by people calling themselves communists.

Some say the kibbutz is an example of communism at work

The inventors of communism knew that communism is not achievable without coercion.

If you bother to do a little research you would know that the utlimate goal of communism is to dissolve the government.

Amazing how far left the Left has taken the democrat party. This is the party of communism, socialist, big government, big spending, big taxes and embracing the world's radicals.

Ah, the PURE form of communism....worshipped and heralded by many, practiced by none.

Doesn't exist, never will.

There's no room to turn over in a grave shared with millions exterminated by communists.
