Communism is a revolutionary socialist movement to create a classless, moneyless and stateless social order structured upon common ownership of the means of production, as well as a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of this social order. This is system that people own equal amount of money each. This system was formed to reduce economic reduction, and degenerate morality from the private property. It is based on the Marxist theory that says “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs “ which means ‘redistribution of wealth’.

To explain more about communism with details, communism was actually an economic-political philosophy founded by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in the second half of the 19th century. They met in 1844 with the same ideas and principles of communism. They wanted people to have equal rights. First thing that they did was analyzing other especially the capitalist economy. They found that capitalism emphasizes the rights of the individual and claims to give equal chance for every person to succeed in life. So that they concluded capitalism only creates classes among the citizens and leads to the oppression and exploitation of the lower classes. Coming up with new system, they designed communism to make a classless society in which every is clearly equal. Most scholars agreed with them and communism started to be active.

Citizens were happy with new system before Stalin became the leader of USSR and treated people with dictatorship which was totalitarianism forgetting about communism.

So, my conclusion is that when idea of communism had just came out, people were happy getting equal rights and money which means that basic ideas of communism are much better than ideas of capitalism which are allowing freedom to do what they want with their own money how they want. There are still gap between rich and poor in capitalism wheres there are no bagging people and sleeping people on the streets.
