Organization that Marx was in, made theory that was never meant to work, it was meant to first make everything "public property"; then to privatize it, and become owner of it.

It's ironic communism is gaining public opinion because they want power away from the top 5% . Communism usually leads to power being held in the top 0.3% .

It is disingenuous to say what communism "typically" leads to, as it has not been implemented anywhere in the world, except for in name.

Sorry , attempting communism usually leads to dictatorships .

Can you offer examples?
Formerland1 says2014-07-31T16:55:22.6758112-05:00
China and the USSR are prime examples , what started as something to benicits the people did not end that way.
The_Immortal_Emris says2014-07-31T16:55:59.2731766-05:00
Oh? Who is the dictator of China?
Formerland1 says2014-07-31T16:58:07.8027618-05:00
What , oh I said dictatorships whoops I often interchange that term with authoritarian ( I know I shouldn't but I do , very unprofessional of me ).
The_Immortal_Emris says2014-07-31T16:59:42.6987784-05:00
Just wanted to clear that up.
Formerland1 says2014-07-31T17:01:31.7596686-05:00
One of my bad habits I guess.

It's a common misconception. There's so much rhetoric and lingering red-scare propaganda that often times it's difficult to know what is fact and what is rhetoric.

Communism doesn't have to be bad, in theory its very nice. But for some reason it never turns out how it's suposed to that's why I'm capitalist.

@Comrade SIlly Otter, it shows he has negative opinion on Marxism
