There is no form of government,including democracy, that cannot be hi-jacked by vested interests. Whenever power becomes entrenched, corruption & abuse of power soon follows, In theory, a form of government that is structured to allow for regular shifts in the balance of power can avoid that entrenchment - democracy is relatively successful at doing so, but it it is by no means fool-proof.
heh, almost any government style in theory can work really well, but the fact of the matter is, human nature is what messes it up for everybody. greed, corruption, mal-intent... all of these things will cause almost any government style to go down the toilet
I feel that all people are created equal, but should not be made to stay that way. In communism there is no incentive, no profit, no progress, no hope. It's great there are no poor either, and so on. But the fact of the matter is that it inhibits our freedom to do as we choose. Communism and oppression go hand in hand
Communism as conceived by idealists might work at a village level for a while, and it might take a nation from peasantry to feudalism, but its only a low step on the path to higher and more rewarding enterprise based societies. Its a system ripe for bullies to get into power and live a lazy life while the population slaves long hours for meager living in a duped state. It saw horrendous cruelty to 100s of millions in the last century, an evil society system that soon turned on its people. Communism will never rise again, too many people are now informed and networked

you all throw around "freedom". democracy/america being "better" then communism. anyone educated in the matter will tell you YOU ARE NOT FREE . its more like the top 10% of america is free everything below that is shit in relation. so please one day we will probably have something closer to communism (Thanks to technology)so u better get used to it oh and lets not lump all of the horrible things that people did under the guise of communism into the communist manifesto. Communism means one thing and one thing only EVERYONE IS EQUAL.. i find it hilarious that people still use the "Communism doesn't spur progress and doesn't encourage hard work mantra.this is like saying "if i don't have a chance at winning a gazillion (not a number) dollars then i don't want to work. i work hard everyday on my feet and in the dirt and . i work when im sick i come in on days i dont have to work i volunteer for extra work (sometimes out of the kindness of my heart and i will more then likely never see a million dollars . you all think u have it figured out like your educated on the matter at all. a quote "History is written by the victor", attributed to Winston Churchill, but of unknown origin.
