Honestly, do you know what it is? I'll give you an insight, Russia, China, Cuba, not communist in the least. Maybe in the beginning, but quickly warped when great power was put into the hands of the few.
How does it differ from Capitalism? I'll give you an insight, Capitalism is a lot like it's name, capital. The persuit of as much profit as possible. Do some homework, I'm looking forward to these replies.
So, do you really know what communism/socialism is? Be brave, don't hit the anon button. It's like talking to someone with sunglasses on. I won't come after you, I promise.

I'll give YOU an insight; socialism is merely the stage between capitalism and communism.

I can't tell you much about Communism but I can tell you a bit about Democratic Socialism.
"Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives."
In simple terms, we work almost like a giant family. Everyone does their own part in order for everyone in the family to get the goods and services that they need. We take care of those too young, too old or too ill to work. We make sure that those who can work, are working.
