Pure communisme was only invented because and was only good for the purpose of breaking through the tirrany of the pure capitalism (europe).

But the pure forms of neither comunism nor capitalism can work on their own

Umm... the Bolshevik revolution wasn't against capitalism, it was against the Tsarist regime. Also, capitalism works very much on its own, though it requires government standards as opposed to a laissez faire policy to ensure that industry does not abuse worker's rights.

Also, how do you expect a state to enforce workers' rights without being susceptible to pressure from the employers who hold the means to enact that pressure, and lose profit due to these regulations?

Wrong. The first revolution was against the Tsarist regime, the second was the Bolshevik revolution.

Karl Marx co-developed the idea while he was in Germany and Britain though, the whole idea only came about to dispel the corrupt totalitarianism of post Nepoleonic war Europe. Russia kind of adopted the idea because promising such ideals was the only way to get everyone to fight for the same cause. Ironically all it did was instate another totalitarian regimen.

Yes, but i was refering to the communist revoltuion in western europe, the rise of the cooperatives and all that.
What i'm trying to say is that that worked for a while, just to break free from the industrialists and after that things equalled out again. In russia they tried to go all the way after breaking free from the tzars and that didn't work out so well in the long run.
