Karl Marx felt that capitalism has social and structural contradictions which would lead to its eventual downfall. This inevitable downfall, in his opinion, would give way to a socialist revolution or a post-capitalistic communist revolution.

Karl Marx believed that a communist society would arise through a revolution led by the working class, who would overthrow the capitalist system and establish a classless society where resources were held in common. He argued that this revolution would be the result of the inherent contradictions of capitalism, leading to the eventual collapse of the capitalist system.

The capitalist world is one which runs essentially on selfishness. Everybody pursues their own self interest; even those who wish to help others are always free to decide to what extent they wish to do so. The idea of communism is to create a world in which people are not selfish, but instead work for the common good. This is summarized in the phrase "to each according to his needs, and from each according to his abilities". That is to say, everybody gets what they need, because their needs are provided for by the all-encompassing communist society which owns everything and employs everybody, and everybody does their share, under the direction of the all-powerful communist government. It was also anticipated (but never accomplished) that even the all-powerful communist government would eventually become unnecessary, once it was well established that everybody works for the common good rather than for any selfish purpose; this process was known as the "withering away of the state".

What is the total number of Communist countries in the world today?

The countries which today are officially run by a Communist party today are: People's Republic of China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam, Cuba, Nepal, Belarus, and Russia. So there are still 8 communist countries.Technically they are not communist because....Communism is not where there's a leader/dictator. Communism is about ZERO government. The moment you add government, it's not longer communist. Countries such as North Korea are not even communistic. If you break down what they're doing piece by piece, they are NOT communist. You do get the chance to choose your future in a communist society. You do get human rights, way more than you would ever get in a capitalist society. You do get free speech, way more than you would ever get in a capitalist society.
