Capitalism has no place in real communism. China's socialist, not communist, even though it was run by the Communist Party.

nonono, you misunderstand. Western europe is socialist. The government I like is sort of the opposite- capitalism within communism instead of communism within capitalism.

...Suit yourself... but the way you described it is a pretty accurate depiction of Western Europe.

I want to be an idiot
And go to idiot land
An idiot bird in my hand
I'd walk like a total idiot
And sing like idiots do
And people would say "what an idiot,
He/She's an idiot through and through
And I'd plant an idiot's garden
And live in an idiot's house
A harmless grinning idiot
With my lovely idiot spouse.

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, it becomes destiny.

Of course not. True communism can never really work, because it assumes that people will work their hardest and be content with getting the same amount as if they slacked off, and be happy doing the same thing with no real hope in advancing in life.

Of course, capitalism doesn't work either because you can't simply be sure that people will have a social conscience if you let them be as greedy as they want.

So, the question is where we can find the happy medium.

Socialism is a mainly capitalist government with stricter laws than true capitalism about giving money to help the disadvantages and public funding.

On the other hand, the government I describe would fall more towards the communist end of the spectrum as opposed to the capitalist. The basic framework would be communist, yet also allow people to better themselves. it's a small distinction, but an important one. Most of the time, I think that it's better to be more communist than capitalist, which is why a more communist socialism appeals to me.
