could communism ever work?

practicality of communism

communism as everyone is aware is a form of socialism, communism is perhaps more attractive as it is less about economics and more about the people. Many intellectuals have been drawn to communism due to its promise of an ideal society in which all can be regarded as equal. However has communism ever worked? The rather depressing answer to that would be no, as the great political theorists who concocted the communist manifesto and other great political works forgot one very important thing, human nature.
