    Marxism is the original Communism, Marx's writing in a nut shell is of a Utopian society, everyone is equal, none more than another. Plus anarchy, his beliefs were of a stateless society. Ranked 3rd for me.

    Marxist-Leninism is Lenin's tweaking of Marxism, which share many of the same principals, but has the idea of a vanguard party, because anarchy never lasts. My number 1.

    Trotskyism is again elaboration on Marxist-Leninism, but he preached of the impossibility of "Socialism is one nation", basically having only one Communist country. He also believed in permanent revolution, revolution until the extinction of capitalism. Number 2

    I'll group Moaism and Stalinism together as they are basically the same thing. These are what most people think of when they think of Communism. These are the ones that involve secret police, brutal policies, mass murder, restrictions of rights and other fun (sarcasm) stuff. Not even worthy of ranking.

    Please we you see "Communism", don't think of Stalinism and Moaism right away, remember the other three, that aren't really that bad.

    No I don't know, but if carried out properly wouldn't be so bad.

    All of those are unrealistic, and bad forms of government.

    This assumption presupposes that the ideology is sound. Marxism (and by extension most likely all the others) are not.

    Unrealistic now, but things can be changed. No one has tried to work on the theories of communism is many years. I'm ending that. My own theory of Communism is in the works.

    Enlighten us, what could you have possibly thought of that would work that previous Communist philosophers could not?
