There are many misconceptions about communism, so it’s worth taking a moment to clarify what it is and where it originated. Communism is an economic system that exists in many countries around the world. It’s a system in which the state owns all means of production, including land and labor. It also calls for redistribution of wealth so everyone has equal access to basic necessities like food, education, and healthcare. Proponents believe this makes people happier overall than they would be if they had unequal access to such necessities. Communism was first developed by Karl Marx as a critique of capitalism in the 1800s. Though Marx never applied his theory of communism to any country, its principles have since been implemented worldwide—with varying degrees of success—in places like China, Cuba, North Korea, the Soviet Union (now Russia), Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
Communists believe the state can be a force for good that makes wealth more evenly distributed.
Communism is a form of government in which the state controls the means of production. The word communism comes from the Latin word communis, meaning “common,” and Marxists believe that all people should share equally in society’s wealth.
Communists think that private ownership of land and business is wrong because it allows some people to get rich while others remain poor. They also believe that having private property encourages lazy workers who will not work hard unless they have an incentive to do so. Communists think that everyone should be paid equal wages for their labor regardless of their skills or job description, so they say workers would produce more if their pay was based on how hard they worked rather than at what rate they produced per hour or day (or week).
Communism is not inherently violent.
Communism is a political ideology. While many people think of communism as a religion or cult, it’s not either of those things. Communism is not inherently violent; in fact, it can be quite peaceful and cooperative. However, it does require that people work together and share things with each other in order to function properly–and if you try to force someone into communism who doesn’t want to live that way, then you’re going to have problems with them resisting your ideas and possibly even fighting back against what they feel are unjust restrictions on their freedom.
The communist family model originated in Ancient Rome.
In ancient Rome, the communist family model was used to ensure that the Roman family would survive. The model was not used as a way of controlling the family, but rather as a way of ensuring that they had enough food and shelter. It was also used to protect against attacks from outside sources like enemies or wild animals.
In other words, this style of living formed because it made sense for people who lived in an environment where resources were scarce (the Romans lived on an island).
Capitalism and communism are both forms of economic systems.
Capitalism and communism are both forms of economic systems. Capitalism is an economic system in which the means of production are privately owned by individuals. Communism is an economic system in which the means of production are owned by the community as a whole. They’re both different, though—capitalism tends to be more focused on individual freedom and personal wealth; communism focuses on equality for all people within it.
Communism has produced amazing results in countries like China.
It is a common misconception that communism has failed every time it’s been tried. In fact, many countries in Asia and Africa that have adopted the communist system are doing quite well for themselves. Consider the case of China: with a population of more than 1.4 billion people and an economy worth $12 trillion dollars, China has an impressive GDP per capita of $7,500 USD. Furthermore, while they love their iPhones and new cars just like everyone else on earth (and more than most), they also have access to free housing, healthcare and education for everyone living within their borders – all at no cost whatsoever!
In addition to being rich with natural resources such as coal and iron ore which help keep its factories running strong year after year without requiring much investment outside those industries themselves; this vast country is able to provide foodstuffs cheaply thanks largely due to its fertile soil conditions which allow crops like rice or potatoes grow easily under any conditions imaginable (including underwater). Couple these advantages with high levels of productivity
Although many consider communism to have failed, there are still over 100 countries using it today.
Although many consider communism to have failed, there are still over 100 countries using it today. While most of these countries were forced into adopting communism by the former Soviet Union, there are several that have continued to use this economic system after the fall of the USSR. These include China, Cuba, North Korea, Laos and Vietnam.
Communism was never intended to be violent and was instead a way for people to work together towards a common goal: equality. If a country under communist rule did not provide all its citizens with equal access to food and resources then it would be considered an example of injustice—something which is completely opposed by communists’ beliefs on justice and fairness for all members within society regardless if they’re rich or poor.*
If you want to know the truth about communism, you have to look beyond what happened in the Soviet Union. It was not a failure of communism but the mistakes made by communists that led to its downfall. Communism is still being used all over the world today, and some countries have seen great success using it as their economic system; it’s just not always talked about because these countries want to avoid antagonizing others in an increasingly anti-communist world.
The prompt for this section was structured slightly differently, so I’ve added some context for each question:

Brief: We believe that the future of digital textbooks is bright. More teachers will likely adopt these apps in the coming years, with an increasingly large ecosystem of features to stay current with evolving trends in educational technology. With tools like accessibility options, Albertson the butler, and customizable reading levels, individual students have more resources to keep up with their peers. On a classroom level, new interactive capabilities, like sharing material with other students, encourage teamwork and collaboration. We have only identified a few key features here, but there are numerous others being developed to enhance the textbook experience. Teachers and students alike stand to benefit from these innovations, and we can only wait and see how the world of education responds.”
