communist, in the actual state of our species, is nothing but utopia, and will probably stay as such. i agree with your statement.
u scandinavians are the probable best experience in modern times with "communism", because u, imo, are what comes closer to family due to civical and geological particularities, and a walk towards commune is not possile without the sense of family.
u are the kind evolving the concept in modern time, making mistakes along the way and testing its boundaries. seems like u have learned some mistakes from the last 30y, since u even lost nokia to motorola along the way (which is sad, but im far from knowing the specifics - what i know is that the lack of innovation was a thing in old communist experiences).
i, nevertheless, agree that equality will always be diff from zero, specially because individual endeavours needed for breakthroughs must be rewarded properly due to risk.
btw, as a scandinavian do u agree with the theory i wrote?
