Default Re: communism(discuss)

Often times the government directly or indirectly controlls the economy.
-communism is a governemnt type, and it also controlls how the economy works (there are different types of communism)

North Korea is supposedly "Communist."
Many countries offical titles don't reflect there actual innerworkings. Ie "the ppls republic of....." is often used to stand (in reality) for the "fascist dictator ship of...."

1. often Fascism
1. A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
2. A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.
2. Oppressive, dictatorial control.

1. A theoretical economic system characterized by the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.
2. Communism
1. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
2. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat.

Communism is both, facism can be an adjective and a system of goverment.
Hope fully this will conclude this segument on definitions, can we get back to the actual topic?

My question is....
-Does any one here belive that a C-A system of governemnt would work in reality? If so would it work better than a capitalistic system with democracy? If you chose to defend it, Im aware that there are many differnet types and specific detail on each type of governemnt, so awnser to your opinion of what is best, cuz all of any type of gov aren't he 'same'.
