  • Define communism. What is communism?

    Communism is not only a would be economic system, but also a political doctrine (or worldview) based on the idea of “common ground” or “equality”. Now, Communism has sought to “level people down” by “dispossessing” those who have CAPITAL and by “redistribution” or sharing such CAPITAL with those who don’t have it. However, the so called “appropriation” and “redistribution” of CAPITAL is not always political dialogue concerning economic capital such as the “factors of production” or the “means of production”, but such a dialogue may also encompass other types of resources; namely, “social, cultural and ethnic capital”, which is not conventional CAPITAL in terms of economic resources: Land, labour and capital. Thus, political and leftist dialogue may well encompass the so called “appropriation” and “redistribution” of social, cultural and ethnic CAPITAL to improve the circumstances of others who are bereft of such CAPITAL. Therefore, any Modern, proper and correct definition of “communism” should also encompass dialogue concerning the unconventional types of CAPITAL, which are social, cultural and ethnic. Since CAPITAL are not only economic resources, but there are other types of CAPITAL, also. True or false?
