there is nothing communist about those dictatorships. it's like calling Syria a "democratic republic" just because it officially calls itself that.

as for capitalism and consent, that only works if there is an equal power dynamic. massive corporations give ordinary workers little negotiation room to demand raises without large unions. like the recent concern over mandatory arbitration agreements where workers are forced to sign a "I will not sue the company" form if they want any hope of a job there.

the same goes for customers. without the FDA testing the food, companies can use any chemicals and claim all natural all they want. are you going to test it? do you even know what to test for?

capitalism only works if the two parties concent to the transaction. meaning if you want my service you need to provide me with a service, and then a transaction is made.
unlike communism, if the govement owns my goods and I refuse provide my goods or services, I will be put into prison or like good old time communist countries, killed.

It's certainly a promising ideology, but it can't work in execution, no matter how hard you try. It's ideas are good, but there's too much left to be made up by whoever uses it.

Communism takes from the rich to give to the poor. However, every Communist leader once he takes power keeps what he gained from the rich instead of giving to the poor. You could say the ultimate greed. Every Communist leader read Karl Marx.

why do you think it leads to dictatorships?

besides, it's hard to believe those dictatorships have anything communist about them besides their name. actions > words

Communism cannot work because it leads to dictatorships.
