And honestly, IF IT HAS NEVER WORKED and you say IT WILL NEVER WORK, that proves all the more that what I am saying is correct. It will never work because of human nature.
I never once said it will never work. -__-

I've only said it hasn't worked because no one has done it following how Marx saw it occurring. The Communist Manifesto is a timeline to how governments gradually will become communist. It goes Agrarianism, Feudalism, Capitalism, Socialism, Communism. Russia failed because they went from Feudalism to Communism in a single step. I'm not even referring to "communism" because that general idea got warped in the eighties and is used to describe the Russian failed communism attempt. I'm referring to "marxism" the gradual formation of the society that so many alleged "followers" put to high esteem and failed to create because of the fact that they can't even follow directions.

And much to my surprise there are communist communities existing today. The only thing they deviate from is the fact that they are religious communities. The Dalai Lama's community of monks is a good example they work for the progress of the community and each member of that society is socially equal with the rest. They are doing exactly what he said would happen: there is no need for authoritative control, everyone holds the same social stance, everyone despite their differences is equal to one another.

And for those arguing that no one is equal Marx referred to everyone being socially equal, not economically, not physically, but socially equal. And really there would be no economy once the full realization occurred because its a self sustained community.

Umm once again I don't think I mentioned a college degree anywhere.

Khajmer couldn't have explained it any clearer. Writing about your experiences and your opinions of what happened makes you biased and blind to the other side. A retrospect on what really happened by looking at both sides of an event is worth a lot more than a one sided novel. Since Orwell didn't even experience true communism (the marxist kind) that makes his opinions about communism actually working are nothing more than just that, opinions.
