An ideology. A political system. A concept. A theory. It dates back as early as the 6th Century, the Golden Age of the Creek. Plato, a Greek philosopher, extrapolated a society with the communal holding of property, his concept of a hierarchical social system. It has been called by some as \"aristocratic communism\". Tommaso Campanella, was the first author to have penned down the basis of communism on black and white in his book \"The City of The Sun\", published circa 1601. He talked about a society of which the products are shared equally amongst them. At that point of time, however, the word had not been termed yet.","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":492815,"object_id":"koufas1358771135","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"The word&#39;s roots are from the Latin word \"communis\", which basically means common.

The basic principal is that everybody in society is equal, there is no such hierarchy within the country, and all of the people of the communist state are working for each other. Also, all wealth is communal throughout society. This includes money, properties and all other asests such as cows. Next, all wealth is owned by the state for the \"greater good\" of the people. This basically means that the government has full control over all of the people&#39;s money, which in itself is a conflicting idea already. What is best for the country collectively as a whole, what is best for the people, what they think is best for themselves, what is best for the economy, what is best for the government, may all be different, hence raising an issue already.

We are, ultimately, selfless creatures who would always put ourselves ahead of others when it gets to crucial points in our lifetime.
