    "Communism doesn't work because people like to own stuff" (Frank Zappa).
    That's self-evident, we don't need a proof for that, don't we?

    It dosnt work because its tool of the JEW its that simple its not a political theory just a control method

    First of all because humans do not like to be equal each other.

    Second, because they do not like to share something they work over.

    Third, because of the first two, a group become a communist burgeoisie. And used the ideas of communism to gain power and control.

    So I have to know why, if marxism is unanimously recognized as a disastrous ideology, some people still refer themselves as being 'communists', expecially in my country (Italy). Did they ever read anything of Marx? And if so, did they understand it?

    Because they persuade themselves that since 'full communism' (as they call it) has never existed anywhere, the failure of particular attempts at centrally-planned socialism (the stage between capitalism and communism) does nothing to discredit Marxism. For these people, Marxism is basically a sort of secular religion, which is attractive precisely because its predictions are unfalsifiable.

    Incidentally, an excellent book to read on the topic of why all centrally-planned economies must eventually fail is 'The Socialist System: The Political Economy of Communism' by Janos Kornai, published by Princeton University Press, 1992. His argument, in essence, is that a centrally-planned command economy contains certain inherent inefficiences (rooted in the de-facto demonetarization of the economy and distorted incentives) which necessarily compound themselves over time and eventually lead to the collapse of the system.

    Communism fails for several reasons. Frankly I hate to see how some over-emphasize the purely economic defects of the system and fail to look at the higher spiritual faults of the system. Communism attempts to eradicate the sacred, and this alone marks it for failure and its destructive nature.

    In a current debate with a Trotskyist about working class involvement in the NSDAP at phora.org, I posted these quotes from William Brustein's book The Logic of Evil: the Social Origins of the Nazi Party, 1925-1933 concerning the Communists.

    on page 158:
    And finally, many workers might have chosen the Nazis over the Socialists and Communists because the leftist lexicon and ideology were frequently too abstract and too far removed from the daily lives of workers. George Orwell, an intellectual socialist, may have aptly captured socialism's and communism's failing in his Road to Wigan Pier, published in 1937. In his explanation of the European's left inablility to counter the popular appeal of fascism Orwll states: "As for technical jargon of the Communists, it is far removed from the common speech as the language of a mathematical textbook. I remember hearing a professional Communist speaker address a working class audience. His speech was the usual bookish stuff, full of long sentences and parenthesses and 'Notwithstanding' and 'Be that as it may', besides the usual jargon of 'ideology' and 'class-consciousness' and 'proletarian solidarity' and the rest of it."

    As Rubstein also explains on page 137-138:
    "As appealing as the communist utopia appeared to many German workers, daily improvements in their lives probably concerned them more....During the Depression, many German workers probably viewed the Communist calls for a general strike as harmful to their immediate preoccupation -keeping their jobs. The Communisty Party's policy of requiring party members to maintain trade union affiliation proved impossible to carry out and conflicted with other aspects of German working class life. Communist leaders' unwillingness to accept the legitmacy of the non-Communist labor movement was an additional example of infexibility and no doubt hindered the party's chances to compete successfully with the SPD and the NSDAP for working class support....In sum, because the party protrayed itself as an outsider, and one unwilling to comprimise, many potential supporters probably decided to affiliate themselves with another working class party."

    Further explaining the faults of Communism.

    I fully agree with you on this one - though we probably have different perceptions of what the sacred entails
