If communism was working the way its progenitors wanted it to, would it be better than capitalism?

The main reason why communism was made was people wanted to be equal without getting restricted by their environment, but nowadays communism is abused by some dictators such as North Korean leaders. Besides, capitalism also has its own problem. There are so many people who didn't have opportunities to try what they really wanted to do due to their poverty or else.
If communism was working as it should be, would it be better than capitalism?

  • May 1 2013: I guess you might just disappear into one of Chancellor Creedys black bags. :(

    just kidding.

    I am speaking about a system that is created by highly evolved beings. Far ahead of where we are now. A system such as this would only exist voluntarily is if by far the majority of humans involved decided that it is in their best interest to create it. If you were among them and maintained that attitude, everyone would know you as a non-contributor and your fellow beings would not purchase anything from you. Because a society like we are discussing wouldn't exist until everything became transparent. There would be no hidden agendas. Your business details would be available for all to see, so all people could make decisions about you based on all of the information. They would do this because they understand that "what you do for another, you do for yourself."
