Communism can only be arrived at after the stage of “socialism” being achieved, and the bringing about the conditions under socialism that will lay the foundation where ultimately there will exist a society that has enough material abundance for everyone in society so that no one need to compete for status or survival.
Under the conditions where competition is replaced by cooperation because the need to compete is no longer necessary and the competing and gathering of material wealth for social status is no longer necessary because material wealth no longer being scarce is no longer regarded as something to compete over.
The “nature of animals and humans change when their circumstances, situation and conditions change. A scarce environment and an abundant environment would cause actions compatible with that environment.
Under the conditions of material abundance where the desire and need is to cooperate, a new type of human being will be born with a opposite type of nature that exists in competitive societies. “A social scientific being” that will be his and her own leader, and follower, where he and she will not need a political apparatus, or any kind of leader, to tell them what to do, or not do.
Under communism the state gradually withers away, and you have an administration of things. Not people!
It is my hope and understanding that only under a socialist type of society that all nations will be able to assimilate into a global village and create a world that will under a planned economy will eliminate conspicuous consumption that will save valuable resources for future generations, and will take care of our world environment so as to protect the earth from extinction.
