  1. Really, but not at the level of society. This is the process of an inner breakthrough to a person in Himself, uniting with like-minded people, with a small group, acquiring certain properties, changing the needs that make the life of these people described by the properties of communism.

  2. Well, you do understand that people have very different needs?

    actually, you will still have to set what is reasonable and what is not.

    Capitalism, whatever it is, allows a person to buy everything he wants, even if it is stupid. it would be something to pay for.

    Communism doesn't seem inclined to do that

  3. I will express the opinion, which is so unpopular today, that communism and a new society are theoretically possible.

    There is no doubt that economic and technological progress is now able to meet all the social needs of each person. I'm not talking about “wishlist” like an expensive Mercedes or yacht, but about the public (!) necessary (!) needs of each person(housing, food, means of transportation, education, self-development, etc.). This is simply not possible in the global capitalist system. Capitalism is not able to solve even such an acute problem as hunger. Although it would seem that the landfills are full of unrealized food industry products, food that could not be sold.

    The claim that socialism and communism are impossible is firmly embedded in the public consciousness after the collapse of the USSR and the collapse of the Warsaw Pact. This allegedly proved the unviability of the socialist model and, in general, according to many, proves that there is and will not be any alternative to capitalism.

    I would like to point out that the concepts of socialism/communism are not identical to the concept of the USSR. The Soviet Union was simply the first attempt to choose an alternative path and one of the possible models of a new society. The attempt failed, no one disputes. But does this mean that socialism is doomed and does not work by default?

    People living in the capitalist system believe that since there is capitalism now, people probably haven't come up with anything better and probably won't come up with anything any more.

    It took Europe 300 years to switch to a capitalist economy. 300 years of slow and sometimes painful establishment of capitalism, a whole list of bourgeois revolutions that were crushed one after another by the feudal lords. The Great French Revolution was truly a turning point for Europe, but how did it end? The Napoleonic Wars, reactions, and the rollback to Bonapartism until the 1870s.

    I often hear that the Communists sacrificed hundreds of thousands of people to their ideas, and this is true, but didn't the bourgeoisie do the same in different countries of the world? How many lives did the French, Dutch, and British bourgeois revolutions take?

    To say that there is no alternative to capitalism is, to say the least, strange. No one knows how history will turn and what choices people will make in 50-100 years. There is also no doubt that the existing system will do its best to stifle the new society that will replace it.

    This topic can be continued for a long time, but I will not fall into graphomania and write kilometer-long texts. But after all, everyone knows the problems and absurdities of the capitalist system, but they are all accepted as the inevitability and norm of things, or, even funnier, they are perceived as the benefits of this system.
