I'm not sure we've ever had a communist system, at least, not since
money was invented, anyway.  There was a lot of Marxism and Leninism
around, though.

Personally, I quite like the anarchic communist government approach, but
even that does rather assume that people will cooperate, which only
seems to be true when people have enough room.  When things get too
crowded, societies do seem to change quite a bit.

In Minnesota they ask why all football fields in Iowa have artificial turf.
It's so the cheerleaders won't graze during the game.
