Adherents of capitalism often reproach communism for dictatorship. In fact, democracy in the bourgeois system is nothing more than the freedom of the “masters of life” to mercilessly exploit the workers and punish them in case of resistance. In turn, the so-called "dictatorship of the proletariat" is the comprehensive power of the working people in the complete absence of class discord.
Another myth says that communism is a solid “egalitarianism”. However, the discussion here is just about the aforementioned class discord, and not about personal needs and everyday life, which the capitalists like to frighten the modern "consumer society".
The common misconception “ascribes” to the planned the economy shortage of goods and endless lines. Such propaganda is reinforced by archival personnel from the USSR during perestroika. In fact, communism implies the abundance necessary to maximize the satisfaction of human needs. And in the Soviet Union (before the Kosygin reforms) there was complete commodity independence.
Of course, the myth of the total “take and share” is absurd. Communists have always advocated the destruction of private ownership of the means of production based on the exploitation of man by man. But this in no way applies to personal property of citizens.
And finally, communism is not a utopia, as many believe. It ceased to be the lot of dreamers thanks to the efforts of Marx and Engels, who laid the scientific foundation in it through the universal laws of the development of society.
Communism is a system where all means of production are in public ownership and belong to the people, and not to a small handful of rich exploiters, as under capitalism.
