Many of those countries and their economies have also developed underlying problems such as debt, homelessness, bankruptcy, and unemployment as a result of this 'incentive'. The desire to work is not the only factor affecting workers.

It seems that you've made the assumption that all of the needs of the economy and wants of the people from a positive perspective. What if they want guns? What if they want drugs? An award system established by a Capitalist system also suggests the possibility that the incentive could be taken away. For example, if people decided not to work, the incentive would be gone and the people would abandon their work; this affects everyone, not just the individual.

Communism is a network of ideals based on the principles of one of the most impartial ideologies of Karl Marx, applied to Russia by Lenin and China; two largely effective governments working for the overall benefit of its common people and not the wealthy. The basis of Communism is the idea that wealth is distributed throughout the state to create a ‘wholesome’ community which is run by the government to elude corruption—as often happens—in many capitalist societies where money is a means of accommodation for the wealthy/middle class versus a useful means of operating a country. This ideology has also become a device in the past for the reformation of deteriorating economies such as after the first gruesome revolutions in Russia, ‘Bloody Sunday’ and the February/March revolution of 1917, to help them restore order. Economic reforms under Lenin and Stalin helped Russia once again rebuild the Russian economy and allow it to become a leading force In the steel industry.

In the present, Communism is often misinterpreted as a path for totalitarian government and dictatorships such as that of modern-day China. Its core principles are in fact centered on, and similar to, the overall goal of many other political and social systems: to achieve and maintain order in society. This order could be political, economic, or social. In many ways it claims superiority over the other systems because the fundamental flaws of Communism are typically at the fault of the leader attempting to interpret and execute Communist ideals versus fundamental flaws in the ideologies themselves. In the light of this fact we may conclude that it is a superior system because although democratic, socialist, or capitalist ideals may seem more appealing, the consent by the state to give power to the individuals is a mistake far larger than that of any previously Communist state in history. With power of the individual precedes a power to change the tide of the government, and thus disorder. In a Marxist-Communist state, responsibility and total devotion of the people to the state is crucial; without arresting many freedoms of the individual, the a Communist state is able to maintain order in comparison to a largely capitalist system which vows to respect the ‘rights’ of the individuals without being able to assure order without having to impose on the people through violence.
