The basic principles stand that because in capitalism the owner (bourgoise) always pwns the working class (proletarians). Marx's solution was to eliminate all class, have everyone equal, and eliminate money, government, and social systems. Although utopian when carried out correctly, the idealogy has been consistently defeated by the natural human greed, hax0rs, and the need for being the best. Because Humans are naturally greedy, and by evolutionary stand points always strive to acheive maximum 1337ness, the theory of Communism developed by Marx is practically implausible and ideal.
Jim: Yeah, but communism is impossible for humans to use, so we are basically screwed.
True Communism should not be confused with Socialism. Socialism is what the United States government wanted (wants) to rid the world of. A totalitarian state.
Socialism isn't communism.
