Actually, the first Christians were also the first Communists: Acts 4: 32All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. 33With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all. 34There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35and put it at the apostles feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.
There's a difference. They weren't forced to do this. They did it out of love for one another, just as Christians do today.

I agree, see post 16 though.
