    It's all about economics and free markets and ownership of property and the means of production.

Everywhere throughout the history of man where Communism has been tried it resulted in the enslavement and suffering of those subjects upon which the system was imposed!

    The classic answer is that in capitalism a society's means of production is owned privately. In communism the societies means of production is owned by the state.
