Communism can only be seen by me as an unpractical ideal . it can never work in practice because as has already been said it is detrimental to the free market economy that the world currently uses and relies upon , the only way communism could work is on a whole world scale with every single country under a worldwide communist government which again is annother idealistic concept
it also isnt in human nature to conform to the communist idea when faced with a choice between having lots for oneself or a little bit for everyone most if not all people will eventually chose to have lots for themselves that is why there are people starving to death in this world when there is more than enough food to go around
another thing i think people get mixed up with is communism and dictatorship they assume just because there is communism there is also a dictator or just ebcause there is a dictator there is communism

huh, thought there would have been another reason.
Well, I would suggest closing this thread before theres any flaming and argument and gets out of hand.
Just wanted an answer
In the following bit you can replace america with the west , im not just saying america is guilty of these things its the western world and ideals as a whole which i am refering to but since the op mentioned america i thought i would use america
Firstly chinas system has elements of communism but is not completely communist
america hates communism because the strings are being pulled in america by very rich people and rich people do not like communism at all because it puts them at the same level as the people they employ to do menial things like cleaning
another reason i think america has a hostlie relationship towards china had nothing to do with communism instead IMO it is because since the 80's at least chinas gdp growth rates have been higher than americas america can see that china economy is strengthening and with china having the words biggest work force this scares america a lot because they risk china becoming the new global superpower when it was in fact the west who put china where they are now . That added to chinas alliance with Russia scares america much more than they like to admit but rather than come out and say that they attack the communist regime in china
ANother thing i think it is is an understanding issue .America dosent fully understand the system china uses and because it isnt the traditional type of democracy the western world understands we attack it rather than try to understand fully . this can also be true of our approach to russian democracy it isnt what we know so we attack it and say its not right and it dosent work
