You didn't.

You just have a doctrinaire and generic statement about global order etc

My question was basically about the pragmatic important of trying it on a small scale to learn more about the problems and challenges that will crop up. As well as whether it might be more likely to start on a smaller scale and expand than to be ushered in as a global system all at once.

I've read it. It was a while ago. Please cut the relevant passages that answer my question rather than directing me to go reread some boring Marxist tract.

Fair enough at least you answered

I'm not convinced though... Other orders have always emerged gradually over time. The idea of the entire world going communist at once seems far fetched to me.

And Marx had some good points about capitalism but he was also wrong about some things. EG he said the rich would get richer and the poor poorer. Instead both are getting richer but the rich is getting richer faster.
