Default Re: Communism

Just because a class is not agknowledged does not mean it dosen't exist. It is possible for a Communist system of government to exist fairly and with great justice, but the balance of power for all communist systems today is shakey. Communism is a very broad and general term for a system of government. I speak of it taking into mind countries such as U.S.S.R. and P.R.C. because those are, well in U.S.S.R's case, were the leading communist entities. I agree with you that the "commune based society pictured in marxism, is close to utopian." Utopia means "no place."

The term "utopia" is combined from two Greek words — "no" (ou) and "place/land" (topos), thus meaning "nowhere" or more literally, "no-place/no-land."
