There have NEVER been ANY real communists, in any country. Those are banker stooges who THINK they have a communist government. NEVER. BEEN. TRIED. ANYWHERE. ANYTIME.Ah, yes, the "it's never worked because it's never been properly implemented" meme.
Why has it never been properly implemented? Because it can't be "properly" implemented. The whole thing is contrary to human nature.
The fact is that it has been implemented to varying degrees all over, and the failures can be directly traced to the fatal flaw in Communism -- that it is directly incompatible with the human urge to better one's position in life.
Remove that incentive, the incentive to produce and innovate evaporates -- and everyone becomes equally poor, griping about how the system isn't giving them what they are "owed", and frustrated that there's nothing that any individual is allowed to do about it. The only way it could ever possibly work would be if it were completely opt-in, opt-out ... but even then it would be doomed as people looking for a free lunch would opt in, and the people making the free lunches possible would eventually wake up and opt-out. And the only way to stop this is to have the kind of totalitarian top-down control these countries have devolved into -- directly proportional to the degree of "implementation" (thus rendering it not an opt-in, opt-out system -- negating the whole premise).
Communism is the pipe dream of control freaks.
That's it in a nutshell, folks.
