If you'd ever just sit down and think about it you'd see that pure communism is the only viable method of government.

If you believe in communism, then why do you believe a patty flipper at McDonalds should be paid the same as a neuro-surgeon? or vise versa. If everything payed the same, no one would want to do any of the hard work that builds society? Everyone would be doing the easiest and most useless fucking job there is, why? because it all pays the same and takes little to no effort, there would be no doctors, nurses, lawyers, laborers, engineers, mechanics, electrical workers, that would destroy society and is a flawed system that could never work

Communism may be morally correct, but it simply is not realistic. No matter where you go, if there are humans, there is corruption, and corruption is the cyanide of communism. It just isn't compatible with human nature. Why do you think there is only one successful communist state today?

The free market, on the other hand, is the economic equivalent of a biological ecosystem, where the economy grows strong through natural selection. In a free market, only the strongest survive. That being said, the "losers" don't die, but are left to wallow in poverty. This is why I personally advocate the existance of free market, but with clearly stated and throuough protection of the working class at the highest level of legislature, I'm talking like Constitutional amendments.

Please don't think I'm trying to attack communism, i admire it's egalitarianism, but it just isn't attainable with a government made up of corruptable people.

It also requires that there are no flaws in the humans in the society

Which is why it works very well on a small scale in places like Brook Farm. The transcendentalists knew how to do it.

Pure Communism is a viable method of government, but it's also an unachievable method of government. Too many variables have to go perfectly, and that just can't be maintained.

As much as I hate the "Hurr durr gulag" notion, it is correct on how it can go wrong if it isn't properly maintained.

That is why there is a socialist phase before a communist phase, in order to eliminate the classes. Capitalism breeds greed, this culture breeds greed. Look at the indigenous peoples of hawaii before capitalism. Human nature is not a good argument because this is not a controlled experiment.

i actually did, but when there is no competition, all the companies won't make better things. wich leads to that we stay at current technology

actually, the nation would have a vested interest in education and technology, as well as food production and medicinal efficiency.
