By: Brandyn Moraga Communism is the control of minerals, factories etc. by a government only to serve us equally There are currently five communist countries. These countries are: Laos, China, Cuba, North Korea, and Vietnam. All other countries are either democracies or under dictatorships. Communism was created to ensure equality for everyone. It made everyone to be treated the same instead of having one person having more power than the other. A good thing about communism is that they are treated equally. Medical care and Educational opportunity are usually high priorities. Crime rate is lower. The bad thing are that it was abused by people like Stalin and Polpot to gain power and control You can't own your own land, have to pay high land taxes. You have no privacy, surveillance is common in every area of life. Everything belongs to the state even your lives. Communism started around October 1917 It was started by Karl Marx and Friedrick Engels in the 19th century. The life as a communist varies on the country in which you live in. Some workers in ex-communist countries wish they were still living under the old rules because they were living better lives back then. Communism started when the government was split into two parties: the Radical Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks Communism works by giving everyone the equal amount of rights as another person has no matter how rich or poor they are. It helps the poor rise up and be as equal as the middle class people. Yes it is still used in the world today. China, Vietnam, Cuba, North Korea and Laos are still communist in the world of today. Communism is used for minerals, oils, etc. It is also used for production such as factories, plants, refineries etc.
