Communism

“Communism” is an economic theory which stresses that the control of the means of producing economic goods in a society should reside in the hands of those who invest their labor for production. In its ideal form, social classes cease to exist, there are no coercive governmental structures, and everyone lives in abundance without supervision from a ruling class. An economic or political system based on the sharing of all work and property by the whole community.

Heinrich Heine (1797-1856)

Communism is usually associated with totalitarianism, while in reality it is quite the opposite. Communism is a society in which the means of production are owned by society and operated under the administration of equal producers and their free association–their workers’ councils. Collective labour is directed towards satisfying the needs of individuals and the community, while society is governed through a network of popular assemblies and communes that utilise participatory democracy. It is a stateless and classless society, a human community.

There are many theories on how to achieve communism, ranging from Marxism-Leninism (as embodied in the USSR, Albania, etc.), Trotskyism, anarcho-communism, and left-communism.
