Generally only to overcome the immediate obstacle or disaster. We never see what happens after that. People seem to perform the same way in real life; banding together in the face of proximate and immediate danger and then reverting to 'normality' after that.Ironically, its in Hollywood blockbusters that you see the Comunist utopia being virtually created. A sudden disaster gives people the excuse to throw off the petty greed and egotism of capitalism, and band together as comrades, sharing all, and facing all danger in commune.
