Why has socialism and communist failed every time it’s been tried ?

The USSR , East Germany Gdr , Yugoslavia , Czechslovakia etc all fell . The communist countries that still exist Cuba and North Korea are some of the poorest countries in the world yeah yeah they have high literacy what does it matter when they have a ration card and jobs that pay slave wages ? Hell at least the infrastructure in North Korea looks a little better than Cuba’s decaying island Havana looks like it was hit by a nuke, it helps that North Korea received a lot of assistance from China during the Soviet collapse irk why castro didn’t just restore capitalism in Cuba once the Soviet collapse he kept his strong anti imperialist America mumbo jumbo talk gong throughout the 90s and look where that has gotten Cuba no where.. Trump making an effort to improve relations with North Korea is smart waste of time Obama did with Cuba the Cubans are inferior people that depended on the Russians and have nothing to offer compared to the Asians

    In a communist country, if you're really smart and invent something special, the government takes it and uses it for their benefit, and the only thing they have to say to YOU is get back to the fields and do your work. Doctors are not considered any better than anyone else, and are paid no better, so why would anyone want the job. Government officials are fat and wealthy, while everyone else is starving. Just look at Rocket man. HE sure doesn't miss any meals, and his people are dying every day of starvation.

    a)  There has NEVER been a communist country with a communist economy, only socialist countries with socialist economies. The current six socialist countries are China, North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Cuba. Most are ruled predominately by communist parties.

    b) Cuba had a US embargo on it from 1960 until 2016 but its education, healthcare and social services are good. The economy is certainly growing and improving.

    -- North Korea has excellent healthcare, education etc despite being forced to spend large amounts on defense as they are justifiably paranoid about being invaded by South Korea and the US.

    c)  Some Socialist countries collapsed because the "West" with its capitalism, enticed the usual greed and selfishness of people who forced their communist governments to turn capitalist. Racial and religious tensions also played a major part.

      Oh yeah, I would love to live in Cuba, and dream of owning a 1950 Chevy if I could only afford one. Sounds like a real paradise.

    They are all derivatives of MARXISM...which is a completely false ideal.

    "The government would control all resources and means of production to, in theory, ensure equality."

    Governments NEVER do ANYTHING efficiently. Those who run the government turn into GREEDY POWER HUNGRY JERKS...because they CAN. There are no checks and balances. Governments can't make valid decisions because they are BUREAUCRACIES.  The right hand will never know or understand what the left hand is doing...and CONFLICT arises and SOMEONE DECIDES..."ENOUGH" and SLAMS DOWN ON EVERYTHING...because they CAN. PEOPLE DIE!

    125 Million dead in the LAST CENTURY ALONE. Tried over 100 times. IT WILL NEVER EVER WORK. Even CHINA...adopted CAPITALISM for its ECONOMIC STRUCTURE and kept CONTROL...by acting as the GATE KEEPER for FOREIGN interests. The bureaucracy at the top level weilds power with an IRON FIST.

    SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM DOES NOT WORK!!

    Communism and socialism fail because they are contrary to human nature and they violate the rules of economics.

    However, the communists and socialists LOVE the systems because they get total power.

    Yea, capitalism has so much to offer everyone doesn't it?  It's where anyone can have access to an old tarp to sleep under.

    Because it demotivates the people and for some reason leads to extreme government corruption.
