Communism is a social order or economic system. It is not a form of government. The Israeli kibbutz are small agrarian communes with no forceful government. People like it. They stay there. They can work as hard or not as they desire. They have been around for a long time.
Communism does not allow the means of production or personal property to be privately owned. Socialism is just the means of production in public hands. Marx did not assume an elite state would exist in his utopia. So there would only be one class. 20th century communism implemented his ideas but with a tyrannical state. I don't think he would've approved.
I am happy if the whole world wants communism. Just leave those of us you don't want it out. It does not work though. Too bad many haven't learned that obvious lesson.
