In my personal view, the marxist theory is completely ignoring the psychological aspect.

Kind of— but that isn't a bad thing. There aren't psychological traits inherent in people that would make Communism impossible to obtain. They're merely ingrained into people by their environment. That's why there isn't a jump from Capitalism to Communism, or from Feudalism to Socialism. In Socialism, psychological traits that would clash with Communism would slowly disappear after generations— culminating in the establishment of Communism.

The problem with marxism I see is, that it claims to be a perfect system, therefore it is a closed one.

Perfect != Closed. And wouldn't Communism be, on a micro scale, many interactions between different communes and communities? Many open systems? It'd be no more closed than Capitalism.
