Yes!Communism is our way of life back in the days when people do things collectively but socialism is when government take over the means of production or economic activities. Nigeria is a capitalist country and not a socialist country.let me just stop here because the concept you raised is a wide concept.As a sociologist I support communism any day any time and am a Marxist.
tanks bro!

because the state control the means of production of goods and service, and there is also the abolition of class oppression and exploitation.

Control?

Means of production ?

What do these terms mean

Is there any government that does not control means of production?

No it is about rational thinking. Being able to use basi c logic.

The starting pont is to have a a fundamental understanding of of what communism is and what it is not.

Your reasoning in the index post that

For instance it is run by the Chinese Communist Party which is the sole party recognized by law.



Does that make China communist?


The starting point is to have a working definition of communism before make weak and watery assertions.

Dictatorship is not communism
Communism is not dictatorship

It is back to the drawing board for you I am afraid.

You lack clarity in your mind about what communism is and or is not

Communism is the last stage of socialism. In other words, it is more extreme. In communism, the government owns everything unlike socialism where there is room for private ownership of property.

Another major difference is communism mostly comes with violent revolution from the low class against the middle and high class in the society. This isn't the case in socialism as it doesn't require violence since it's more flexible and democratic...
Meaning Nigeria practice socialism right?

However, communism is utopian.
Can you please explain how? From what I have read, communism is when government controls all. That's obviously going to lead to some disgruntled groups.

Now I get what you're saying. Well, I already described what communism is all about in my previous comment so it would have been an unnecessary repetition if I was to start defining it again. You get?

No, funny thing is it's communism that ensures the equal distribution of resources. There's more or less no class structure in communism. Just the state and the citizens

As a Sociological concept, a situation is utopian when it is considered unrealistic n unattainable.

the state will wither away. You see why these concepts in communism is utopia.

Socialism = the means of production (land, machinery, etc) are owned "socially".
Communism = the means of production are owned "communally".
Capitalism = the means of production are owned by the capitalist.

Technically, socialism is the transition stage when capitalism is overthrown and the workers take over the means of production. Communism is what you get after the transition, and described as the final stage of human development.
