With the right leader do you think Communism could actually work in America?

  • Follow the true meaning of communism

    Communism is a nutshell is the fact that everyone works for the good of the community and everything is shared equally among the people. We have seen utopias like this happen in the world such as the Puritans and other societies that are SIMILAR to communism. True communism has no government, it is a way of life that is ruled by all who partake in it.

  • I think that it could work.

    Communism is the belief that the people rule. That currency is worthless. Stalinism is often called Communism, while truly it isn't. The Chinese follow Maoism, which is technically Communism, though it's basically Ultra Capitalism. You have a few mega rich people, but a large majority of it's poor people working their tails off blindly. Communism lowers the unemployment rate, but raises the rate of prisoners per capita. True Communism hasn't been pulled off...Ever, really. If the right leader established true Communism, yes, it'd work.

  • Yes, it could work.

    The true idea of communism has never been attempted, and with the right leader in charge it could definitely work. Stalinism and Maoism are extreme variations of communism, true communism could and would work in america today. If we had the right leader who wouldn't be corrupted, America would prosper under a communist way of life.

  • Shared goods and tons of money.

    We'll see I don't understand why people have a sharing problem if we all receive equal I'm sure we will be happy because America has a nice amount of resources. And everyone makes the same amount. I know your problably thinking why would a farmer get as much as a brain surgeon, well if a is no there to make the food, raise it, and kill it, than the brain surgeon can not eat thus he can not work so everyone is equally important. Also America is a very rich country so the amount you are payed could be like $13.00 so there is why are economy would be good, also the the food we receive.

  • Communism would work greatly!

    Most Americans complain that people are lazy and play video games all the time. In a communist country, you can't be lazy or you won't get paid, so ultimately, there will be less bums and less homeless people. Also, a hint of socialism would be great too. I think communism would work better than capitalism in America.

  • Okay so reaistically, it could work. The only reason that most people say it couldn't is because of the nasty reputation that Stalin gave it.

    Think this way, if we could find someone who wasn't corrupted by the power of captialism, we could in theory find a way to make it so that they stayed in power long enough, as long as they have the proper wants that we would want to have in a leader, like the selflessness we haven't seen in this country s many many years. Since the 1700s at least. That leader could set everyone in the right mindset to allow the good traits of communism to shine through, it only hasn't because of previous leaders going mad with power and punishment. Or just dying.

  • Yes we can

    With the right path , right leader, and teachings of Karl Marx we can progress with communism at our side. We need to realize communism is of equality and if everyone were in the same position we won't have an elite 1% so let's give it a try old boys

  • Communism is pretty neat

    Look at the Russians. Look at them. LOok AT tHEM!@!!. We as the United Staytes of Americka are the future of not only the Earth but also the World. When the Nazis killed a bnunch of Jews, the JEws died because they werent Commies. Team Americka YEah go communism yeah

  • It could work when you think about it...

    All of the previous attempts for countries to achieve communism have been effected by war from other powers on their soil; Korean war, the bay of pigs, and even in ww2 in Russia. They didn't really have the current ( I will not say prospering) effective government like the U.S. With the right leadership and proper ideals, Communism (with a hint of socialism) would be perfect. The hint of socialism is there for the freedoms of all people, you know how that goes. Basically it serves as the assurance of natural rights for American people. The communistic part of this idea is that the wealth and power are distributed among all. This way beaurocrats wouldn't hold their wealth from circulation or have their money buy decisions of the country. However, this system has one fatal flaw. What of the people that do not do their part in aiding the community? This is where the others who attempted true communism failed. Because each and every person effects the community. I honestly do not have the answer to this issue. Because I do not agree in killing them like past attempts did, I simply feel that under communism, everyone is guaranteed a part in THEIR society, whereas in Americas government today, our votes matter for just about nothing important.

  • Communism would work in the USA if we had the right leader.

    I believe communism is a good and fair system everyone works to benefit the community not just your self. In communism everyone has a job and is paid. If applied correctly with the right leader would work

    (just for 50 words) a a a a a a a a a a

  • ABSOULUTLY POSITIVELY NOT!!!... Of course, Obama is pulling it off (OOOOOOOOOOOOH)

    But seriously, another Civil War would easily break out. If the US Government even took our guns away, let alone if it turned communist. Once any nation, no matter how powerful it is, strays away from its original constitution, it falls. If the constitution worked for 200 years, dont stray away from it.
    If the US went in to a civil war, just like we supported the Syrian rebels, other nations would support us. Rebel forces would probably get the support of NATO forces, and other non-communist countries, while the us, the country that is trying to turn communist, would get help from Russia, and other old Soviet states and countries.

  • A government with total control of the economy and the people's social values will never work for freedom/equality or our benefit.

    Communism has reigned in many European countries and it has never worked for the peoples' overall good or benefit. Many millions of Christians and those who would not compromise for the government were mercilessly murdered, starved to death, and taken away from their families and so on and so forth. All forms of government have their own downfalls, but communism is the worst of them all! There is absolutely no freedom, and truly, everyone (besides the government leaders and secret police and all) is only "equal" in poverty and debasement. In many cases in the freezing cold of night, communist's would poor icy water on Christians until they froze to death and became icicles. Even those who worked very hard on their crops and followed the rules were treated like crap and not acknowledged. In America, with our many corporate interests and that 1% of the elite class, no way will communism ever work! That would be a nightmare! Communism is for a perfect world; and as everyone knows, this world has never been perfect, and never will be.

  • Why is this even debatable?

    Simply no, it wouldn't work. There would be no desire to grow up and make money. People don't understand how good they have it, we have choices. It's fair for every middle class family to become rich you just need to work hard enough for it. Communism has killed millions and it just doesn't work because the top 1% own everything and have to much power. Here everyone has a choice and a chance to speak. China is trying to slowly push it away because they know they cant grow there economy past a curtain point. This is why communism doesn't work in general.
