A fundamental issue with Communism is that it assumes its leaders are morally just and have the best interests of the people at heart, when in reality, those who are in power, wish to gain more, as well as maintain their current power. In essence, Communism sounds great on paper, but it has yet to prove itself in practice.

I hate Capitalism, but Communism is even worse.

To those of you stating that Communism/Socialism is bad in real Communism the "state" is really the collective name of the citizens of that state, so in Communism the state is directed by the community. This, however, has never been practiced as they have always used a one party system using the name communist/socialist party of [country] to establish a totalitarian/fascist government (Which is why Communism and Socialism get such a bad reputation).

So before saying Communism or Socialism are so bad because of the USSR, Nazi Germany, etc. please realize that the governments you are looking at were not strictly communist. They were Totalitarian or Fascist using a Communist or Socialist economic plan to keep the people poor and themselves rich.

Not all Communism is bad, only Communist Dictatorships are.

The only issue with this is what I call the "Stalin Problem." Basically, it states that a system such as this will put immense power within several people's hand. And unfortunately, when someone has a lot of power, they want more, and will get it by any means necessary, much like Josef Stalin of the USSR.

this is completely wrong has Stalin was given a bad wrap by the FBI. Hoover payed journalists to lie in their counter propaganda wing.

Here's a challenge: Achieve all of that without initiating force against anyone in any manner.

I personally believe that Socialism to some extent is good. However a completely Communistic economic system is impractical.

True, it is impractical. If you remove the dictator, all you have is a peaceful working community. That is more practical, and it's true communism, but no one can escape social classes long. They're inevitable.

Right. If there was a full-democratic Communist country, the main problem of an over-powered government disappears. However, history has shown that most Communist governments fell to protesters who were impoverished, oppressed, or both.

Unfortunately, might I add.
