Pro communist:
They have a better organization based on lies and manipulation and not actual outcomes?

Con: In1958, Mao ordered the slaughter of all the sparrows , which lead to a huge a rather huge locust infestation, which lead to mass starvation and death.
Con: The masses cant question the logic of the party and they starved to death.
All you are doing is reflecting on what a human has done you have not discussed anything that is about communism or socialism..
What's the difference?
One is a form of govt. the other is a tyrant murdering people because he can. There have been many of the tyrants through human history, very little of the societies which were pure socialist or communist.

Of those countries, how many were successful in implementing and sustaining these ideological paths?

None. An Ideological path is not a political philosophy.

It takes morals to establish a Commune of Heaven on Earth.
Unfortunately, killing one hundred million in China and the Union of Soviet Socialists' Republic did not abide by the rules of the Kingdom of God by murdering more people than there were communists. And now the Nancy Pelosi fluffers must decide how they're gonna honor their new philosophist buds with their revised version of mass murders of inconvenient Republicans. :cranky:
It was not for the sake of Communism that the native Americans were also killed and pushed off their native lands or that slavery was condoned even after our declaration of independence, or that many people died during our own civil war.

And, while I prefer our already established mixed-market economy based on our federal Constitution. Communism seems to be accomplishing more than our form of alleged Capitalism.

We should be building new Cities in more optimum locations to deal with global sea rising and to improve our economy.

Why should communism abide by the rules of god when god is a non-existent entity? Communists in Wuhan are now walking around still not knowing where their own virus comes from in their own country, and its certain god won’t be telling them anything.

If they actually taught history in this country, this wouldn't be a thing. The communist strategy to take over the US education system has been successful. Tipping point achieved. It will only get worse now. They are already talking about mandating this equity crap in government institutions like schools. Remember Kamala's position - "Equitable treatment means we all end up at the same place."

The path here is the same. Just in a different form.

OMG, really? You didn't know what the question was asking? So, this is how you deflect from having to say that Socialism has FAILED everywhere it was implemented? Talk about dishonesty....

Alrighty then, one is the government causing misery and murdering people, the other is a tyrant causing misery and murdering people. Yep, one sounds so much better than the other...dumbass.

Pro: communism sounds good on paper.

Con: unless you're reading a history book.
I think the question is disingenuous. A system of Government should do what it is supposed to do.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Are we doing better than any communist regime?

I will start off:
CON:
Russian and Chinese Communist managed to kill more of it's own people than Hitler did in WWII. By persecutions or purges or wildly inefficient or just stupid policies thought up by Commissars.
PRO: Great PR department. Nice weapons. And the never ending supply of empty promises of a brighter tomorrow. Or else.
You obviously don't understand what "communism" is so, why not education yourself on the subject and stop behaving like some 1950s bircher.
