communist are greedy no matter what. They always want a little more. They aren't happy with what they have and this is 100% true. This is the main reason why communism will never work.

"communist are greedy no matter what. They always want a little more. They aren't happy with what they have and this is 100% true. This is the main reason why communism will never work."

Which communists are you referring to? If you are referring to the proclaimed communists of the Soviet Union then all you are showing is that some communists were bad. This is not to say that communism itself is bad. And at the end you say communism will never work. The resolution says that communism is bad, not that it can or can't work.

And if you have drawn your conclusion because you believe that there have communist states that have failed, you're line of reasoning is fallacious.

According to Marxist theory, communism is "a sociopolitical movement that aims for a classless and stateless society structured upon common ownership of the means of production, free access to articles of consumption, and the end of wage labour and private property in the means of production and real estate." http://en.wikipedia.org...

Since by this definition there has never been a truly communist society as all self proclaimed communist societies kept intact the existence of the state, whatever you are trying to use as an example of a failed communist system never actually existed.

You have not and cannot use an example as I have shown that there has never been a truly communist society. You also tried to show that communists were bad without actually providing any examples. Even if you had this would not show that communism itself is bad.
