Ok so I finally have this speech somewhat deciphered and all your guy's help had really helped, but we have to take those terms, relate them to us, and use them in a persuasive speech. My Persuasive speech is how our current political/economic system can never be communist. Is that a little easier for everyone to help me with?

You could describe what your life would be like under different political regimes and make it funny? That's probably what I would've done. What would your day be like under communism? Maybe you'd come home from your job at the job at the government shoe factory to your standard grey apartment block, greet your neighbour the dentist on your way up the stairs (who makes as much as you do of course) and eat your government provided dinner .. what would that day be like if you tried to describe it under other regimes or lack of them, like anarchy?

Well, that doesn't sound funny (making it funny is your job of course) but whether or not you think communism is a good or bad thing, you could change the perspective and write accordingly and of course exaggerate for humorous effect.

Do the same for the others .. And okay, I realize it doesn't sound like what you're going for, but at least you might have an idea for later.

How do you define communism here? Marxist, Leninism, Stalinist, Trotskyism, Maoism etc.? You also must differ between the utopic anarchistic society presented by Marx and Engels, which was seen as the natural (and inevitable) successor to capitalism, and the dictatorship of the proletariat, which was Lenin's et al attempt to reach that utopic society.

Furthermore, which political regime throughout history will you use, if any, to exemplify Marx's philosophy? The Paris Commune, the USSR, China, Cuba, etc.? How well do you think these regimes reflect Marx's visions of a communist society?

Just a few points that could be discussed.
