Can communism save us all?

Post by GreatCosmonaut on Wed Nov 19, 2014 12:23 pm

As I see it our world and not least our society is walking down a shady road. In fact I believe that society as we know it is slowly dying. We are facing many problems: Pollution, over-population, overproduction, hunger caused by inequality, wars, spreading disease, caused somewhat by overproduction and overpopulation, and poverty as well as rising inequality. Not even to mention the danger of running out of non-renewable resources. As I see it many of these problems are to some degree a direct cause of capitalism and economy-based struggle between nations. So what I've been thinking about is: Can a global communist revolution save the world from its problems? Here are my thoughts that go to support answering this question with a yes:

A global communist revolution would mean that the worlds global market would be controllable and main-branded meaning that we wouldn't have to produce more goods than we need. To some degree this also goes to solve world hunger as there is actually plenty of food on this planet for everyone to survive if only its distributed better. Therefore also pollution would be much easier to regulate. Without a market in economic anarchy and without overproduction much less pollution would be submitted into the environment as well. This will also go to somewhat reduce the danger of fast spreading diseases which is a rising problem in our society. With less overproduction it would also be easier to keep resources prioritized and distributed where most needed be. In addition to all this wars and military conflicts that are these days based a lot on economic situations would be heavily reduced.

These are obviously just thoughts that are inside my head so I'm wondering if any of you guys have made any similar reflections to how a communist society can deal better with the problems our world is facing than our current society.

Our society is indeed going by a shady road but is the history of the great depression and then the rise of fascism repeating.
After the third world war we can talk about global communism.

I agree, communism could solve the worlds ills. The biggest problem we face however is mention the 'C' word and people look at you as if you are some monster and think communism is about totalitarianism. We all know communist principles are nothing like that, but the media which is controlled by the establishment will keep churning out fears and lies and divide the working class. Until we control the media we will have difficulty in getting our message across. This is why I feel its important to organise within the journalist and print unions and bring these tools of the establishment crashing down.

This is why I have insist that we should redesign the brand and not the product.

Maybe a better question to ask is; what is communism?

From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. It is a society capable of realizing this idea, in which each individual provides an agreed amount of labor and receives compensation on the basis of need. It is a society that recognizes that people are not equally endowed (i.e., they vary in abilities due to biology, circumstance, and different stages of life), but that this inequality between individuals does not warrant inequality of social position. "Need" does not entail limitless desire, of course, and other remunerative criteria are compatible with it, such as reward in proportion to effort and sacrifice.
