Or has genuine communism ever existed?
What will a genuine classless, communist society look like?
Communism is a similarconcept, in that ownership ofland, capital and industry can not be owned or controlled by theindividual. However, under Communism the control of thesethings is not by a local community but by the State Government. Under this system the government has total control ofeverything produced and control what is made, and who will receive thegoods and services produced. Under this system you are notallowed to own your own home, your own car, your own furniture, or eventhe food you eat. The State decides what you can andwhere you will work. You have few if any rights.
a communist government, will be sufficient for his purposes.

Most were reluctant todo the planting and weed a garden that was not theirs. Thatfirst year, the gardens were not well kept and theyhad poorcrops, which led to hunger the next winter. Under thissystem, by 1623 the colony was facing starvation. It wasdecided that a new system be used the following year. Eachfamily was given a plot of land to garden in proportion to its size. They would be allowed to keep the fruits and vegetables forthem selves.
