Australia has less games than the PS3, if you ignore censored ones.

It's pretty naive to think that that makes you immune.
|Communism looks great in theory. But it has a serious fundemental flaw. It requires you to invest all of your power in a very select few and trust that they will not abuse it.|
Not so. Marxism is based around the idea of popular revolution from below, leading to a "dictatorship of the proletariat" (working class). At first, humans lived in tribes as nomads. This is referred to as primitive communism because everything was shared, including power. It was replaced by a slave state, which was followed by feudalism, where there was the ruling aristocracy above, the subservient bourgeoisie below them, and the proletariat at the bottom. This led to dissent which led to outright revolution: the middle class (the bourgeoisie) replaced the aristocracy as the ruling class and established a capitalist society. Marx believed this would lead to further discontent as the proletariat came to realise that the bourgeoisie were exploiting them exactly as the aristocrats had before, and that there would be another popular revolution where the proletarians would overthrow the bourgeoisie and establish a socialist workers' state. This would slowly evolve into "pure communism", where the state would be dissolved. Marx predicted that the capitalist society in England would be overthrown sometime after the industrial revolution. Needless to say it didn't happen. Anyway, the point of all this is that Marxism is based on popular
revolt, where the majority take power from the minority.
Marxism-Leninism (aka Bolshevism) is a modified version to allow a minority group (in this case, the Bolsheviks (Bolshevik actually means minority; the Social Democratic Labour Party split into Bolsheviks (who supported Marxism-Leninism) and Mensheviks (who believed in pure Marxism)) to unilaterally seize power and overthrow the Bourgeois. It also allowed a very short Bourgeois stage (from February to October 1917 in Russia's case), which Marxism stated would last for a long time.
The point being, you're talking about Marxism-Leninism, which more-or-less died with Lenin. Also, I don't think pure communism is great in theory. Socialism is great in theory, and in practice (look at how well Norway is doing with its combination of socialism and capitalism).
