What's wrong with communism?
The community working together to make life good for all? What's wrong with that?
We should only be so thankful that the apostles laid down such a humbling and helpful structure.

Everything. Haven't the failed experiments of Communism taught you anything?

Communism is based on the assumptions that people are not greedy, they don't want to be materially better-off than anyone else, everyone will work hard, money will be irrelevant, the government owns everything and will centrally plan the economy, and has no concept of how new products/services can be launched.
Each of these assumptions is bogus, and does not work. So the "true believers" enforce a dictatorship to force people to build a workers' paradise.
There has never been a communist government where people had a high standard of living, nor basic human rights.

It needs checks and balances or else you start with freedom and you end up with a Stalin - this has happened in far too many places for it to have been a one-off. The idea is great but why do you always end up with a Stalin or a Kim-Il-dung? This isn't to say that unchecked capitalism doesn't reek of shìt as well. The best solution is probably the halfway house of European-style social democracy (and the American Deomcrats don't come remotely near to being that; they're just slightly less right-wing than the Republicans)

Sloth, selfishness, and jealousy. Otherwise, it's a pretty good concept. Christ certainly encouraged it.

Because you can never have a better life than the government permits.

Communism is the government dictating what citizens will do and won't do, and punishing those who don't comply.

Obviously you have little life experience. Also, reading about something in a book, something you have no first hand knowledge of and using it to support your argument is not real bright.

Communism is one other religion of the devil. This single thing has caused so much suffering in the world that I feel really sorry for whoever thought it first.
