assuming that you can neatly divide society
Delegates are recallable to the community they act for and have no policy making or power of their own instead putting forth what the community they are a part of agrees they are to be put forth. If executed properly the power structure is very decentralised and spread amongst free associations such as communities, self-managed workplaces, and federated groups of the aforementioned.
This does a pretty good job of differentiating the two: http://punkerslut.com/articles/deleg...sentation.html
Sorry for the confusion, this was more of a reply to the guy you quoted than to yourself.Delegation not Representation posted:
See I support communism believing that having a small percentage of rich people is unfair n the working class and the homeless. the thing with communism is that you have to work and what happens when a society works? it eliminates homelessness now if that communist government isn't corrupted the system could in fact work creating a country which is strong and is bonded by hardship and in the cold war the soviet union was the best country in the olympic games. My dad had grown up in Yugoslavia(ex communist state) and had told me education was taught at high standards as well for sports and the military so that they could lead the country forwards and famine had not been high it was rare to see as well as unemployment and my dad was raised from the working class family. many people said that communism didn't work yes and no lenin had made it work but stalin had changed it from a socialist government into a stalinist government in which he ruled with fear and just ruined the whole of the ussr.
The trouble with communism is that the only type that can really be executed unless 100% of the people agree to it is state communism, and state communism is a very small step away from totalitarianism if the values of a socialist nation are corrupted. Even Lenin's early USSR was still a fledgling socialist state, and he died before he could fully execute all his goals, which were swiftly perverted by Stalin into an authoritarian dictatorship. Unless those in power are truly willing to do everything they can for the proletariat, a communist nation is doomed.
the question with leftist ideology is not whether it can work, but how you create a working class able to take on the management role that has been traditionally left to the state and bourgeois. marxists tend to believe in a socialist state that can spur the collectivization and self-management of society. anarcho-communists/syndicalists generally believe in militant labor unions and direct mobilization of the working class to create a population capable of making the current power system obsolete.
