    Yes, it is. I LIVE IN RUSSIA. It hurts to read your delusion about the USSR and socialism. I hate the phrases like "Stalin killed millions of innocents". Firstly, your magnitude of Stalin's repression is likely to be a big exaggeration and a lie. Secondly, almost in all cases Stalin repressed criminals and traitors that deserved it. At meetings I watch hugging the portraits of Stalin old ones who remember that time! Can't you understand you are brainwashed so that you don't oppose capitalist politics?! The Soviet Union was an Empire of Good, which carried the hope for saving of humanity; There existed other principles of life under the soviet socialism. We lived in society free from false values and hating each other, from greed and vulgarity. Isn't it simple happiness to live so? Most importantly, there was process of creation and labor, not consumption in the center: Such a system would ensure peaceful coexistence to all counries and the conservation of natural resources for many years.

I'm sorry, but for the time being, the USA remains a county-devourer, Evil empire because its government contributed to the destruction of many countries including the USSR, Yugoslavia, Libya. Please, don't listen to american anticommunist myth! Capitalism is a stupid system of devouring each other, which сan destroy the humanity. Money can't buy happiness! And it's pointless to live for increasing private welfare! Or do you like to turn into a pig? Please, discard your myths and join communists! Russia will be socialist, USA, EU too. In confirmation, look which party has actually won russian elections 2011: izbircom2011.ru. Now, do you believe?! (If I made any grammatical mistakes, tell me, please.)

    Some of the ideals may be good but in practice it does not work without making the lives of many people very miserable while the political leaders are very very comfortable. Communism works in small ways-such as living on a commune. It doesn't work for a large group of people such as a country.

    I studied mankind history and civilization and philosophy and social science for over 32 years and read all Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels and lenin books and essays and after 32 years study reach to this conclusion that only socialism can solve many of problems like poverty ,crimes,wars,moral decadence and many more which human societies encounter nowadays.

    Working Men of All Countries, Unite!

    yep! marxism leninism is the way to go i think. The government should assume total control of all the businesses and install their own workers to hire the previous workers of a former capitalist country and there it is! socialism!

    If the world managed to become properly communist, it would be a much better place. But no, we have to have capitalists sucking the working class dry.

    Strange, isn't it, how no country has ever succeeded in becoming "properly" communist in over 150 years since Karl Marx.

    On the contrary, they have given their people oppression, mass killing and poverty.

    Except for the Nomenklatura, of course.

    The only ones that communist are good for are the schmucks that are in charge.Look at all the people that helped Castro, Funny how they all disappeared. The truth be known they probably got a bullet in the back of the head.buried in a single grave. Ya think?

    Somehow, the schmucks in charge never want to get past the "dictatorship of the proletariat" stage.

    That's understandable, if you are the dictator.

    That's what dictators do.

    Perhaps not, but it doesn't work a lot better than communism doesn't work.

    People ran from East Germany to West Germany, and North Korea to South Korea.

    NOT vice-versa.

    For 5 years, nothing would happen.

    But the USSR didn't really follow original Marxist doctrine, they went by Leninism-Stalinism. Communism, if done correctly, would be a very good thing.

    obviously you are quite correct - but there is no way to assure pure communism without a governing body and there in lies the failure - if we were all believing christians the world would enjoy communal life without strife, war, greed and hunger we would all help each other - but we both know that is impossible - evil is alive and well in the world so we have to use an imperfect system of rule by the people for the people and of the people - communism dosent work

    I belive in God and christ and also belive in Marxism-Leninism .I do not think these
    two in 21 century are aginst each other. as a scientist i am sure there is many
    evidence indicate there is a universal power so called "GOD" . but christ teachings is the best for mankind for the other world (after death) and communism is the best for this world

    the leaders of communism always make it a crummy way to live so you are wrong. the free people making their own way is the best thing with government under the rule of the people

    The USSR was marxist-leninist, stalinism is not an ideology. Marxism does not function without the improvements Lenin did on its theory. When I said Russia wasn't communist I was talking about present day russia, it was communist, obviously, however it was a socialist country, a classless society, as in a communist country state is abolished as it is no longer needed.

    Yes...and I also think it says a lot that many Russians now are very nostalgic for the Soviet Union, and think that life was better before 1991.

    I guess it depends of what you understand by communism. If you understand communism like what Marx thought then it could be good...but also very utopic :/ If you mean the diferent interpretations some "people" like Stalin did, then is obviously not good.

    in communist society there is no govenment control over people ,on the contrary the people choose and select their government to run and manage social affairs.the government will be true reprsentatives of people.not like capitalist countries which the governments are reprsentative of the rich classes(Bourgeoisie). true reprsentatives people capitalist countries governments reprsentative rich classesbourgeoisie
