Neither 'true communism' nor 'true capitalism' should be pursued. Both are extremely underspecified visions offering little utility to legislatorrs concerned with the details of implementations, use labels which needlessly polarize the electorate, and would unnecessarily decrease social stability.
True communism can help to abolish poverty
It removes all aspects of economy and its issues, meaning no more crisis and poverty. It also makes all men truly equal upon the law, deleting social differences. True communism also would imply in a better industry.
The economic calculation problem due to lack of prices.
Most argue that capitalism fails due to greed. Considering greed as a negative component of human will born from ego, "True Communism", a theoretical model based on absolute equality in the absence of class, could be veiwed the same as putting the hyenas in the same cage as the antelope.
Communism only works as automation increases. If all farming is done by robots, there are no humans in need of being paid to incentivize food production, and food can thus be free to all. Every industry that can be turned over to automation can be communal, but all others must remain capitalist.
At their best, true communism and true capitalism are indistinguishable.
Less corruption is better.
Regardless of where we sit on the capitalist/communist spectrum, we're doomed as long as society remains dependent on hierarchical governance. That's why Stalinism failed (the state became the ruling class) and that is why capitalism serves only to funnel wealth from the poor to the rich.
The world is simply too large for true communism to be effective.
Greed is good.
There is no clear way by which to cause it to come about.
Original Communist theory proposes a revolution in already industrialized countries. This never happened.
Lennin thought that they could industrialize via state control, then turn to communism, but the end result was more capitalism.
Society could never reach it, so it would be a waste of time, money, and people's happiness.
It seems to me that placing all control in the hands of the state would have serious consequences if the state were to fail in some way (war, corruption, economic crisis).
I don't want my country, nor any other, to be turned into a shithole just like every other country to ever effectively pursue communism.
True Communism by human nature is unachievable.
Man will always seek more, greed is an instinct.
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few / ends justify the means
