    Capitalism doesn't work large-scale, either.

    Just look at at Americans losing their jobs, the sweatshops where the proletariat labour and die, rampant pollution, and the coming energy crisis.

    The massive-scale cities and civilizations which have arisen are not sustainable under any system.

    Well first of all they have to sell their hammocks in the free market to pay bills and they sure as hell don't look to be flourishing to me. Looks pretty miserable.

    By definition communism is voluntary. If it isn't voluntary it isn't communism.

    Communist china is also thriving thru this recession, melting the skin off the face of those folks who say this example is a fluke!

    Of course it has a market. Reality dictates this, not definitions in a book.

    There have been markets in Cuba and North Korea for decades.
