Karl Marx was the biggest scrounger,Con Man & Rip Off artist. Constantly going round wanting everything for free. He'd fit right in Food Stamp and Free Phone Nation.

The problem with communism is that it does not into account human nature.

If we split up all the wealth today tomorrow there would be rich people and poor again because some people are much more productive than others. If everyone was like say bill gates or just an entrepreneur then it would work.

Marx's work in economics laid the basis for the current understanding of labour and its relation to capital, and has influenced much of subsequent economic thought.
However, true communism has never been attempted, The former Soviet Union and China were never true communism.
Communism isn't about dictatorship or getting something for nothing. The closest it ever came into being was when the US was being settled and people lived in small communities where they helped each other out.
It's a tough subject to judge since it has never been put to the test.

of course there are persons who are more productive than others... but bill gates for example has a monthly income of about $180,000,000.00 while the monthly income of an average american is about $3,800.00. is bill gates really about 47,500 times more productive than the average person or is something else happening here?

So should everyone stop working because we should all be equal ?
