For genuine free-access communism

The purpose of this group is to discuss the possibility and nature of what Marx called the "higher" stage of communism - free access communism - based on the principle "from each according to ability to each according to need". What can we say about the cultural ethos and practical organisation of such a society to meet human needs? What about the "human nature" type arguments that have been routinely levelled against it , arguments that purport to demonstrate the futility of organising for a world without money, wage labour, the profit motive and the state. Whatever your views on the matter, such a world would be one very different from the capitalist world in which we live - be this free market capitalism, state run capitalism or any possible permutation of capitalism in between.
