Oh and, communism has also negative, but how about: Moddified communism?
Sorry, Communism is good only in theory. If everybody is equal, why is there a government and a dictator? That isn't equality if there are several people running the show.
Pay everybody the same salary? Everybody would also have to do the same type of job (cleaners would still be seen lower down the pecking order than investment bankers etc.), so the country would grind to a halt pretty damn quickly.
Sadly though, Stalin didn't see it that way. The x million people (x because nobody's really sure, but it was a BIG
number) that died under his rule can hardly be seen as being treated equally to those that survived.
Communism doesn't work at all in practice.
