Communism, as simple as I can put it, is a classless and stateless sociopolitical entity in which there is no private property. However, can this be possible? Though many argue the feasibility of communism through political theories and social concepts, I want to demonstrate communism’s impossibility through genetics and human nature. We tend to lose sight of the fact that we are animals and as such, still retain primitive primal behaviors from long ago, though much is dormant in our genes. As part of the hominid family however, we are likely to create hierarchies, whether it is within families, or even in larger groups. The earliest humans who banded together into clans elected chiefs who governed over the entire clan. Later on, as humans merged into larger groups, we elected officials to lead us. Fast forward into history, we’ve had nobility, peasantry, untouchables, priests, kings. Though humans span different cultures, all early humans have some type of hierarchy. Even in modern-day America there is a class system, though not as pronounced as more ancient times. We divide people into the lower class, the middle class and the upper class. Depending on income, living standards, education, etc., we’ve given each person an identity. Thus, is classlessness ever truly feasible. If we rid the world of class immediately, but everyone continued doing what they did, would classes not immediately start resurfacing again? Wouldn’t people value the doctor and leader more than the beggar and thief? How can one truly eliminate class differences in human culture when it has, from our evolution into homo sapiens, been a way for us to see who is useful and who isn’t. Can we ever respect a homeless man who begs for change just as much as the doctor who saves lives? Can we ever stop seeing wealth and power as tiers and see everyone as equals? Perhaps, and perhaps then communism might work. Most likely not, however, making communism a utopian ideal. After all, utopia means in Greek, no place.
