Essentially its the ideal concept... but its broken and doesnt work in society

I don't know what Communism is 'cos I was brought up and indocrinated in the 1980's :P
Seriously, the Soviet Union was no more communist than the 'West' is democratic... do capitalism and democracy sit hand in hand?
Russia, China and Cuba is all that comes to mind.

How do you prove that someone is a communist? By examining his or her ideologies and actions. If they do not match, then they are not a communist.
You can't say "But he's a communist despite the fact that he does things no communist would do", because that is what defines a communist in the first place.
