The Olymipic Torch represents the EternalFlame . The Eternal Flame PROBABLYrepresents Hestia (Vesta), Greek goddess of the hearth. Or it couldrepresent Hephaestus (Vulcan), Greek god of fire.
The torch is suppose to be the eternal flame from ancient Greece to the modern world. The interesting thing about it is that it didn't exist and it was Hitler who started the tradition of carrying it into the games. Most people don't know that is where is comes from. T he idea of lighting an Olympi…c flame for the duration of the Games derives from the ancient Greeks who used a flame lit by the sun's rays at Olympiad, the site of the original Games. The concept was revived in 1936 and has remained an Olympic tradition. ( Full Answer )

A Communist is one who adheres or claims to adhere to the theories of Karl Marx, often supplemented by the ideas of other thinkers. The Ideal of Communism espouses the idea that all people on Earth are in some way responsible for the well-being of their fellow man regardless of his ability to produc…e goods or wealth. This attitude is as old as mankind but it was given a name by Karl Marx. It implies the common ownership of the means of production and distribution of goods. The USSR's abuse of the principle had served as an example of the principles of Communism not working. The People's republic of China is an example of the communist ideology leading to economic progress at the expense of individual rights and strong suppression of opposition. ( Full Answer )
A commune is also called an "intentional community." It is a relatively small community whose members share common interests, work and income and often own property collectively. It is an autonomous community whose members have agreed, by free choice, to live a life of sharing by the principle '…from each according to his ability, to each according to his need' . Commune members place the group ahead of the nuclear family unit, generally maintain a 'common-purse' and collective household and make intimate as well as general decisions as a group." Some groups do not share so much on the material plane but much more on the social plane, and this is where, in the ideal notion, the family and the commune almost become one. . Perhaps the best answer is that a commune is a group that defines itself as such.. An Intentional Community is a relatively new term, coined because of the reluctance of many communities to use the word "commune", as a result of stigmas including its presumed similarity to communism.. In actual fact, the term is much less exclusive than the world commune, because it covers any group of people living together, who have a common purpose. Thus the FIC List of Intentional Communities, available on internet, includes a wide variety of committed groups, including at least one monastery. An intentional community is a relatively small group of people who have created a whole way of life for the attainment of a certain set of goals.. The two elements of the term are equally important. Intentional communities have emerged as a result of a number of people consciously and purposefully coalescing as a group in order to realize a set of aims. These aims attempt to create an entire way of life, hence, unlike organizations or social movements, they are intentional communities.. Their being a community has two further qualities: they are (1) characterized by face-to-face relations and (2) they embrace communalism as an ethical end in itself. Without specifying quantities, I suggest that an intentional community exists if, "by and large", the following conditions are met:. (1). It was founded as a conscious and purposive act;. (2). Membership is voluntary and based on a conscious act (even if the member was born in the community);. (3). The group sees itself as separate from and different to its environment and relates as a group to (or withdraws as a group from) its environment;. (4). The community is relatively self-contained - most members can potentially live their entire lives in it (or for the period during which they are members);. (5). Sharing is part of the community's ideology;. (6). The community has collective goals and needs and expects members to work towards their satisfaction;. (7). The ideology claims that the goals of the community, even if orientated to the benefit of the individual, can only be obtained in a collective framework;. (8). Ultimately the community, or people appointed by the community, but not the individual, is the source of authority;. (9). The general way of life of the community is considered to be inherently good, i.e. is an end in itself over and above its instrumental value;. (10). The community's existence has a moral value and purpose, which transcend the time-span of individual membership.. We should emphasize that these qualities can exist not only in varying degrees, but in various ways. Sharing, equality, self-containment and so on can be interpreted in many ways and, as we shall see, this is an important factor in the persistence of intentional communities. The point is that where these qualities exist in the eyes of both the outside observer and the members themselves, we have an intentional community.. ( Full Answer )

No. There was a sacred fire in the temple of Hestia at Olympia, which was never allowed to go out. But most Greek cities had one of those, it wasn't special to Olympia or to the time of the Games. And of course there was no need to bring a symbolic flame from Olympia to Olympia because the who…le of Olympia was already at Olympia. The Olympic Flame was made up in 1928, and the torch relay was made up in 1936. ( Full Answer )
not in the olympic games but there was one in the panathenaic festival which was held in athens

The Olympic Flame or Olympic Torch is a symbol of the Olympic Games. Commemorating the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus, its origins lie in ancient Greece, when a fire was kept burning throughout the celebration of the ancient Olympics.
because they want everyone to come together and pass the torch to lots of diffrent people to come together.
The Olympic torch was first lit in Olympia with a mirror focusing the beam of the sun onto the torch.
In the sanctuary of Olympia, where the ancient Games took place, a flame burnt permanently on the altar of the goddess Hestia, but transportation of the flame to the site of the modern Olympics did not happen until the 1936 Games in Berlin. It was Carl Diem, Hitler's Games organizer, who proposed a …torch relay from the site of the ancient flame. Today, the International Olympic Committee says that the torch "transmits a message of peace and friendship amongst peoples". Extra info; The organizers of the London 2012 Olympics will however most likely bring to an end the torch relay as we know it. The new plan is to take the Olympic torch on a "sports heritage" tour of Britain in 2012, rather than a round-the-world relay under a plan being touted by embattled Olympic chiefs. Worried about the damage caused by Beijing's controversial international relay, which became a focus of violent protests by Free Tibet protesters, they want a gentler countdown to the 2012 Games in London. Instead of being carried through global capitals and trouble spots, the torch could instead take in classic British sporting venues in 2012. ( Full Answer )

For the rest of the way, boat or even plane for the ocean. ( Full Answer )

Have you been to communist countries?I don't think so.I have been there and saw the truth you live normally of course in a different country than yours might be a little change for ya about how you live.But they live normally just like us . Wake up in the morning brushes teeth eats breakfast goes to… work,finishes lunch continues working than goes home finishes dinner and cares about family and reads the Bible or whatever their religion is.You live there normally you buy what you buy you pay for what you need to pay for.You are free! And sometimes you are hungry because there is not enough food for everybody or you have to stand in queues just to buy a loaf of bread. Or the only thing you can get on TV is programs about how good your government is and how good the president is - yes just normal stuff. To correct the above two, Communism has not been achieved nationwide; there are authoritarian "socialist" states, few of whom are socialist, that are labelled "communist" by those attempting to smear it using animosity left over from the Cold War. Although, conditions in, say, 1960s China or the Soviet Union are underrated, and frequently the average citizen enjoyed a relatively high standard of living than before (and, in the case of the Soviet Union, after) communism. For true communes, everyone lives and works together in small communities; the social aspect of working ensures relatively high productivity, although true communes have so far been limited to groups of 20-30 individuals (a large group of 100 in New Zealand) that tend to be agriculturally based. Overall, Communism is a "utopian society" idea only achieved in the aforementioned tiny communes, although feasible on a larger scale; and the ideology is smeared by authoritarian socialist nations. BTW--no queues for bread. Indoctrinated much? If you are a selfish person who only wishes for yourself to succeed (AKA getting rich), then you won't like communism but if you are a kind person who values equality and wishes there are no beggars on the streets or people living in extreme poverty, then you MIGHT like Communism. Communism is a system of governance where there are no economic classes or no "low income families" or "high income families". It is a system where money and private ownership is abolished, everything belongs to the people, all of them and not just the richest 5% of the population who own 80% of the capital. Now, if you drive a Porsche and live in a great seaside house, then you probably won't be too happy donating you car or house for scrap metal to be made into standard houses for the whole country. Greed is natural. If you are Christian then it is because Adam and Eve ate the fruits of sin and if you are not then for you it is because it is human instinct to survive. Either way, Communism will not work because we will all take more than we need for we are greedy. In a true Communist country, there's no such thing as wages, taxes, etc, you work for the country and you receive free things required by you. In this type of society, only human beings who are not selfish and only take what they need will make it work. Obviously, humans are not like that. 30 years ago, in China, the hospitals gave out free medication and many people went to trick the hospital into giving them traditional medicine for their supposedly sick son who has a "cold". In truth, the medicine was taken back home and boiled with water to make soup. You see, that is why no country can ever make Communism work. The word "Communism" has an overall positive affect in poor countries, so how do you seize power easily? You brand yourself with the word "Communism" and do things that has to be the cruelest and most immoral things in the world, in the name of "Communism". The USA is not too happy with anybody taking power in other countries besides their "type" (rich and greedy executives) so they brand everyone else other than capitalism as "bad". North Korea is giving them this opportunity as they are in truth, a dictatorship but branded themselves with "Communism". This makes Communism an easy target for Western propaganda. So now every time you hear the word "Communism" you think executions and mass murders even though that is not the case but as the media has already done a great job at brain washing you, you automatically think that. Communism WILL be good if executed truthfully but no country has any means to do that. _____________________________________________________________ Communism doesn't work because it fails to understand a principle of economics that everything is relative. If I say I am wealthy, what does that mean? Wealthy based on who's definition? I live in an apartment, I own a car, I have some money put away for retirement, etc. Not wealthy by western standards but if I were to take all that I have and move to Nigeria, I'd be very well off. Additionally, if you try to make everyone rich, you only devalue the meaning of being rich and therefore you haven't made everyone rich, you've only made everyone the same level, which is usually poor. Communism also fails to understand that people get to be wealthy not by stealing and cheating but by hard work. When you remove the incentive for someone to work hard because their efforts will be punished (taken by the state) then why will they work hard? They'll do the minimum because the results will be the same. Communism as a theory looks great...its utopian...which is why it fails whenever practiced. The original Jamestown colony functioned like a commune...and it failed miserably. Everyone received equal shares of food and material regardless of whether they worked or not and the colony almost collapsed because...surprise, people stopped working. The colony florished when people had to earn their keep by working. Finally, Communism is flawed because the "ultimate goal" is a stateless society where everyone just lives in harmony and there is no need for government. This fails to realize that nature abhors a vacuum. If leadership is absent, someone will step up and take power. This is what Communists today do not understand when they say there has never been a true Communist state...there has but what always will happen is someone will role in and take power be they Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, you name it. Communes are most successful when they exist inside a Capitalistic nation...ironic. ( Full Answer )
