True enough - for a country to be truly communist, or socialist (in deed, not meaningless labels), the government would have to have a track record of taking from one class and giving food, clothing, shelter and money to able-bodied adults of another class. That might be China, but the redistribution there is skewed, as the productive classes only subsidize the ruling party elites (less than 10% of China's population are members of the Communist Party). I think there are probably better examples of wannabe communism or socialism out there. Somewhere in the world. If we looked hard enough. Like China, it might be a case of mislabeling. A lot of that going around.
