Leicester meeting - what might a libertarian communist society be like?

Meeting takes place at 7.00pm on Wednesday 29th March at
the Regent Sports & Social Club
102 Regent Road, Leicester LE1 7DA

A short walk from Leicester train station
Organised by Leicester group of the Anarchist Federation

How could a libertarian communist society meet people’s needs and desires?

What are the objections to a communist/anarchist/socialist society and how can they be responded to?
Not wanting to be all misty-eyed and utopian about things, especially given the current low level of class consciousness… it’s still worth looking at what we ultimately would like to see in place of the system we live under now.

So given that such a society has never existed, what might communism look like? Could it possibly work? If so, how would it work? What kind of problems might a stateless, society based on the principle of “from each according to their ability to each according to their needs” face?
