I would disagree with your assessment on the scale in which it can work.
I think it can work in small groups no larger than a village. Even then, only when the purpose is survival.
When you try to go larger, or survival is not the basis of life, you have issues. In current society, most would agree we need artists. A free open
system allows people to value art and people can make a living from it. In a survival situation, one artists work will hold little value and disputes
arise as to the fairness of giving potatoes for a song.
I would say that communism is not and should not be a political party. It is a natural system that can exist in the situations I have mentioned. A
political party is based in ideas of fiscal policy and methods of governing. As communism cannot work in a system the size of a nation, it is a flawed
idea to create a party around it. I actually believe that the creation of a party around the idea of communism was set up by those simply to gain and
That being said, why would you want to align yourself with a party for that purpose? Practically speaking, aligning yourself with and parties in
general are a silly, if not dangerous endeavor. Live your life according to the ideals you believe, vote for those whose ideals mirror your own. When
if comes down to it, party's are just a method for candidates to hide their true selves from the people. People can remain generally stupid and say,
"oh he is ____ so he must have the same ideals." People should have to hear the ideals first not the labels.
