Over the past few weeks as we have been studying Marx’s Communist Manifesto, I’ve been thinking about what it would be like to live in a Communist Society. In class, we had a discussion about whether or not Communism could ever potentially succeed. There were several arguments and different ways to look at it, but in the end, I think Julie and I were the only people who thought that Communism might actually be able to work. I was kind of surprised that no one else agreed. If you look back to the few places where Communism was enforced, it failed. But was it the Communism itself that failed or the insane leaders who took charge and killed millions of people? I think one of the reasons that nobody agreed with us is because they are scared of Communism and the terror associated with it. In theory, Communism could be really successful. As Marx explained many times, eventually, the proletariat will overthrow the bourgeoisie and Capitalism will end. It is inevitable. Anyway, what do you think? Will we ever live in a functioning Communist society?
