    It's the communal control of production, resources and services..

    In short it's socialism...

    Lolwut? Socialism is a command economy run to force economic equality. Communism is a stateless, classless society with the means of production shared equally. In Marxist theory, socialism exists as a state to create a superabundance so that no-one goes without come the deconstruction of the state apparatus.

    True - these motherfuckers believe their own lies... They lie and play victim, you can see that in the OWS videos...

    The disgusting part is they don't even understand what they're doing in present times... Now they call themselves "progressives" as if what they're doing is somehow good for humanity... Like destroying the capitalist model is "helping people."

    It's very ironic they (congress allows them to) do everything in their power to destroy the banking system then they go down to wall street and blame them for their own nefarious actions (the representatives they voted for)...

    Of course that is just the tip of the iceberg.

    You're absolutely correct...

    Socialism is a dictated economy (I have been saying that forever) and is the economic model in which Communism operates.

    Communism is communal dictated production, services and resources...

    Communism is pretty much anarchy (which requires authoritarian government to control) and socialism is the economic model..

    I have been reading Marx and the socialist/communist philosophy for 10 years. I think I know what socialism and communism is..

    Those OWS motherfuckers are fantastic examples of what communism is - they are living the communist lifestyle..

    They have a daily schedule to boot... Its almost like something out of 1984..

    Communism is, in theory, collective workertarian anarchism.

    Communism exists when workers control their society without an overarching government controlling those collectives.

    Imagine a world with no government other than the productive collectives that workers cobble together surrounding their particular means of production.

    In that world each collective interacts with every other workers' collective acccording to their own needs.

    If some of you are thinking " Gee that sort of looks like where we'd head if governments collapsed and the CORPORATIONS became the most powerful forces to control society" you'd be 100% RIGHT.


    Libertopian Corporatism IS about as close to theoretical COMMUNISM as one can get.

    The difference between theoetical COMMUNISM and t6heoretical LIBERTARIANISM?

    Who OWNS the source of production.

    In communist utopian ideal the workers own them and there is no private property

    In Libertopia the owers own the means of production and the workers merely take orders.
