Niall you are getting confused here between state socialism (was actually 
existing communism) with communism.
Communism is in fact all about a dynamic constantly changing worldview - 
always reproposing the limit. Have aread of the Negri chapter I posted a 
couple of weeks ago. This dynamic, pusing the frontier, always being able to 
reask the question is the essence of communism, a la the Grundrisse-Marx, 
Hardt and Negri and Deleuze.
What you speak of was not communism. ... it was a colonislation of language 
and just another mode of capitalist/commodity production, albeit "planned".

Maybe Oexonux theory should define categorically the correct meaning of 
communism !! :-) (just in case anyone thinks otherwise this preceding 
sentence is a joke!).
