The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

20 million Russians murdered under Stalin as a direct result of the philosophy this book introduced. People reduced to cannibalism as a direct result of the agricultural policies set out here. Half the world imprisoned in daily fear of their lives with no escape. I could go on.

I doubt many people would be giving a 5 star rating to Mein Kampf. People rating this a five should be ashamed. It was never about utopia, it was a book of greed and cruelty. Probably the most vile and degenerate book ever written. It\'s scary to think that it\'s still brainwashing people to this day.

Chances are a lot of reviewers giving this a positive score imagine that if communists took power you would be rewarded with a nice office, a bust of Lenin and some adoring young party members hanging off your every word. In reality you\'d be more likely to get a bullet in the head like many party members who accidentally strayed one word from the official line. This book, and this book alone, should be banned.
