Communism doesn't work because people are inherently greedy - never satisfied with what they already have, always wanting more. Capitalism provides an avenue for improving one's position and at least temporarily satisfying greed, Communism doesn't.
Thanks. I'd question, though, whether wanting to live under better conditions that the average Soviet-era factory worker was actually greed, or simply common sense.
