"Mordern communism" can be said to be defined by Stalinist Russia, being a despotic state led by a firm, metal grip similar to that of Tsarism. This variation is widely accepted by the western leaders, such as Harry Truman, who viewed communism exactly as such an "evil" ideology.
Down with communism!

True communism is a utopian socity (perfect society),based on Carle Marx philosaphys (Marxism). True communism only works in small isolated situations, and never lasts very long due to the human nature of greed. In a true communist state no one person would have more of anything than another, everything would be shared. A prime example of this is the hippie communes of the 1960's. But true communism was tested in the commune form by transcendentalists such as Ralph Waldo Emmerson, and Henry David Therou in the Transcendentalist Period in American literature (around the same time as the Romanticism Period) 1820-1860 aproximatly.

True Communism should not be confused with Socialism. Socialism is what the United States government wanted (wants) to rid the world of. A totalitarian state.
Those hippies have a great commune. They are true Marxists.

Socialism isn't communism.
