just a quick thought ive had:
ive been having a discussion on the fact that plato believed in the philosopher kings: i.e the philosophers should rule.
Communism is the idea that everyone regardless of rank gets the same.
Most communists have tainted leaders therefore resulting in non communism.
Could communism work in an oligarchy (of philsophers) ? where the ruling philosopher understood the need for communism and its ideas resulting in that particular ruler taking the same.
also i would just like to point out that i do not believe in communism
