I was interested in the topic we were currently studying: communism.

III. Communist Ideology in Russia and the Soviet Union: Leninism and Stalinism

At that time I did not know the true meaning of communism.

The theoretical teachings of Marx and Engels contain ideas that can broadly be divided into two general categories. The first is devoted to the critique of the existing socioeconomic regime and attempts to justify the inevitability of capitalism’s demise. The ideas in the second category are directed toward developing a futuristic model of a distinctly modern, fully egalitarian, and therefore more just politico-socioeconomic order. This side of the classical Marxist teachings is rather diluted and full of ambiguities and even contains occasional contradictions. This regime of the future was labeled communism by the authors and stems from the term that originated in revolutionary France in the 1840s. Communism, according to Marx and Engels, would supplant capitalism through the series of social revolutions initiated in the industrialized West and eventually spread throughout the world. Ironically, instead of mobilizing industrial workers within economically advanced countries, the ideas of Marx and Engels ignited revolutionary movements among two preindustrial agrarian societies in the East, first in Russia and later in China.

Communism is the doctrine of the conditions of the liberation of the proletariat.

Karl Marx is known as the “Father” of communism.

Some conceptions of communist societies assume that, ultimately, coercive government would be unnecessary and therefore that such a society would be without rulers.

He is recognized for this because in 1848 he wrote the Communist Manifesto....

The promise of the elimination of classes, of guaranteed employment, "The creation of a comprehensive social security and welfare system for all citizens that would end the misery of workers once and for all." Lenin's own interpretation of the Marxian critique was that to achieve Communism there would first have to be a socialist dictatorship to first suppress any dissent or protest.

Previous to the formation of the Solidarity Party, the Communist regime controlled Poland.


The ideology of communism came out of the mind of Karl Marx.

Two manuscripts stand out among the most influential works by Marx and Engels: the Manifesto of the Communist Party (1848/2002) and Capital, Volume I (Marx, 1867/ 1992).2 The former piece, which is often referred to as The Communist Manifesto, is essentially a small brochure of approximately 40 pages that outlined the program of the Communist League, an international organization established in Paris in 1836 as the League of the Just and formally disbanded in 1852. The Communist Manifesto, however, acquired a life of its own and is still referred to as one of the most influential political manuscripts written. In this work, Marx focuses his analysis on the problems of capitalism and lays out the concept of the class struggle. There are few details in The Manifesto with regard to the specific form that communism would take as it replaced the brutal, unfair, and fundamentally controversial capitalism.

Communism was just an idea, just pie in the sky." Boris Yeltsin (b.

Cruel regimes in the former U.S.S.R, Germany, and Yugoslavia as well as current regimes in China, North Korea and Cuba are often thought of negatively when communism is brought up.

Then we can decipher why communism did fall.

While it is true that communism has been tried and failed, this is often because of the person or people trying to institute it and the methods they have used....

Karl Marx came up with the theory known as communism.

The general consensus on communism is that it’s a very good idea but falls short in practice because people have and always like to make decisions for themselves.

Communist focuses on the benefits to society instead of individual.
