Fantasy stories with communism?

I’m in the mood for some fantasy, and I’m a communist, soo…

Anyone know any fantasy stories (magic, spirits, mythical creatures, etc) with either straight communism or socialism, or at least those undertones?

I guess in terms of leftist undertones, this search could be expanded to any fantasy story without money or class-based rulers or such, either because it’s pre those things (tribal communism) or just isn’t present in the story. So not princess fairytales or stuff like that, but something like magical spirits or animals living it up in the forest. Warrior Cats, Watership Down, Farthing Wood, Redwall seems pretty collectivist too, and last but not least Ori and the Blind Forest all come to mind for the latter.

Thoughts? Familiar with any of those I mentioned? I’ve never heard a(nother) communist mention any of them and I’m curious what the opinions are.

There unfortunately are a lot of fantasy stories with reactionary themes.

There’s no such thing as Communism or socialism. It’s a myth like the Tooth Fairy. Allow me to prove it; Socialism/Communism has been tried in dozens of countries over more than a hundred years. In every single instance it has become totalitarian and either failed or mutated into something else (such as China’s totalitarian CAPITALIST state). Every time it fails communists/socialists just shrug and say, “It wasn’t real communism/socialism.” EVERY SINGLE TIME! Logically, this means that if something is tried and it fails every time then it can never truly exist. Therefore socialism/communism has always failed, has never existed, exists no where now and can never exist anywhere in the world ever for any reason. But, then, what do you expect from a “system” that was basically nothing more than an idea that was stolen by a bunch of power hungry monsters who mutated it into the worst economic and political system ever? Basically, it’s the political equivalent of Scientology; nothing but pure failure at every turn.

But, then, the “promise” of Communism is that the state will be your mommy, so you never have to work ever again, because you’ll have everything given to you like some little baby. That’s the attitude of high school rejects and outcasts, not the attitude of real adult human beings who are happy to provide for and take care of themselves and their families. So, just like the system you embrace, you’re all failures and just like the fail system you embrace, all of you, too, will ultimately amount to nothing in the end and you will all end up going to your graves never having accomplished anything of worth or value while never having done a single thing to benefit the rest of humankind.
