>> Simply stated, Communism doesn't work.

MS's take on it aside...actually, communism (as distinct from
Communism) *does* work, right up to, usually, somewhere in the low
hundreds of people. (I speculate that this is about the point at which
you no longer can personally know everyone else involved.)

Shared apartments, etc - often very communistic, sometimes explicitly
so ("communes"), and they work. Until they get too big. (Or unless
they're torn apart by other forces, which certainly happens.)

Now, Communism, well, I'm not entirely sure just what that is, unless
it's "what happens to communism when you try to extend it to something
the size of a country".
