The whole point of a communist is society is that you give up your personal freedoms for the good of the community. You have no property rights because everything is owned equally by society.
You obviously do not know Marx's philosophy of a communist country at all.
First, Marx argues that a state will only be present in a communist govt. for only a short time after a proletarian revolution, and will eventually dissolve, when there is one universal class, thus giving complete freedom to the people.
Second, you do not understand Marx's definition of personal property. He didn't want anyone to give up their Rolexs and Escalades, instead personal property is the tools of production used to command the proletariats labor.
Please don't spout off your rhetoric about communism when all you have is some skewed knowledge, and no actual experience with the real philosophy.
FYI, i am not endorsing communism in anyway, rather i am more of a moderate libertarian who fully believes that capitalism is the best system for a functioning, advancing society, but I am extremely open to learning where the opposition's reasoning is coming from.
