Many reasons why communism is a bad idea:
1). It's unsustainable, this is why China has certain capitalist elements, because otherwise it would collapse, North Korea, the only fully communist country, is only still functioning because it is mooching off of China.
2). It was devised by a guy who had no education in economics whatsoever, not only this, but he never even worked a job, rather, he notched on his friend, who was a capitalist, kind of like North Korea mooching off of China which is somewhat capitalist.
Whereas capitalism was designed by Adam Smith, who not only worked a job and managed money, he was a teacher and graduate in economics at one of the most prestigious universities of the time, when Adam Smith says something, he knows what he is talking about.
Additionally, Adam Smith based his points off of history, and explained them thourougly, Karl Marx's The Communist Manefesto was basically plagiarizing the Anarchist media of the time,
"Savatoge the system, create anarchy,"
Became
"Revolt against the system, create communism."
3). Communism gives too much power to the government,
"Power tends to corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely,"
By this logic, communist governments, will be inherently corrupt.
P.S. Kim Kong Un was NOT a good person.
