One step forward towards implementing real world communism - Multiple economical system competition within one country & socialism in closed systems and prisons


  • Zhou, Xinyi Jimmy


As of 2019, real world communism is still not implemented yet, almost all countries on earth beside North Korea with its state-directed economy have adopted the capitalistic system. The later system must have its benefits and advantages over socialistic systems otherwise it would not possess such an high adoption rate all over the world. Nevertheless, like every other political or economic system or framework, it has its weaknesses, and for any capitalistic economical system, the main disadvantage is the squandering of lots of useful human capital. For example if we take a look at Southern or South Eastern Europe, countries like Greece, Spain or countries in the Balkans are facing huge problems of youth and senior level unemployment. The unemployment rates in such countries are not only high, but also very stable over the years which causes severe headache for government officers and policy makers. So much, that in recent years more and more people are starting mentally abandon the capitalistic system for a more socialistic economical system. In order to transform the communistic/socialistic system from an utopian dream system to a real world applicable system, 2 main conditions have to be applied: 1. Condition of system competition: multiple economical systems within one single country are more efficient and thus more preferable than single economical systems 2. Condition of closed environments for altruism dependent systems: Communism/socialism is only implementable in closed systems and environments (e.g. prisons) The paper concludes that (partial) communism/socialism is applicable either with multi system competition across different regions/cities within one country or with multi system competition between inside world (e.g. prisons, clubs, families, altruistic oriented organizations etc.) and outside-world which leads to social beneficial frictions and labour movements between those 2 economic systems (communism/socialism vs. capitalism) that very likely could reduce the unemployment level in those system competitive countries.
