<political philosophy, marxism, anarchism> political theory according to which the individual's actions should benefit the community or the state rather than the individual himself. It is the most radical kind of political collectivism, and depends on an equally radical form of collectivism or altruism in ethics. In practice, communism has always been a form of authoritarianism or of totalitarianism. When referring to actual political systems, communism is sometimes called Marxism-Leninism because of communism's link with the revolutionary doctrines of Marxism and with countries inspired by the examples of Lenin's revolution in Russia, and Mao's in China. (References from capitalism, collectivism, dialectical materialism, and socialism).
