If our society falls apart and we lose productive forces; but humanity still survives, maybe we could return to primitive communism.
Some people are saying that the climate change crisis will bring humanity back to tribal ages. (I disagree with them; but it’s possible.) In the past, the lack of productive forces meant that communism could flourish.
Society was primitively communist because humans could barely produce enough necessary materials to survive. If humanity were to lose a large amount of their productive forces, could we be coerced into returning to primitive communism?
EDIT: Elaborated on my opinion.
EDIT 2: Of course, this idea supposes that all capitalist countries will fall during the crisis.
This is a community for those who are new to or unfamiliar with communist, socialist or simply leftist philosophy. Ask basic questions here and learn about what we stand for!
