The Communist Manifesto

by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels

Throughout history few theories have been as influential and as all encompassing as that of Marx however, serious horrors and abuses in the name of communism came when power-hungry megalomaniacs got their hands on it. A good way to look at the communist Manifesto is like medication for society. In the hands of those who understand the true nature and value of the medicine [ie Lenin, Stalin, Hoxha] a gorgeous new society in which true freedom from oppression is achievable, However in the hands of those who do not understand the medicine [ie Mao, Pol Pot, Cenescu] great attrocities can also be committed, nevertheless there is no more godless and murderous ideology than capitalism; a creed of which millions die simply because they were born into poverty.
