Can you tell me where in the literature of communism does it lay out the necessity for gulags, slaughter, famine, and experimentation?

The communism practiced by dictators is not what communism is on paper, the two get conflated. But at the same time, capitalism is supposed to work for the greater good and discourage monopoly and we've all seen how that works out. Forestry companies in my region have poisoned hundreds with mercury and the government pays the price even though the private sector did it! Imagine burning down your neighbours house, and you don't get punished as the government gives him a new one 30 years later. #Capitalism
