Great Read

Marx really lays bare the plight of the working man. Communism has been so demonized by the capitalist world that it is hard to know what is true about it and what is just propaganda. I am glad that I chose to research it myself rather than just blindly accept what I've been told about it.

Clever but impossible

The idea itself is completely impractical. Marx makes communism out to be a step forward while it is clearly a step toward a more primitive society. I, personally, am a lover of capitalism. However, I recognize marx's passion and love for society, and the idea, though made impossible by human nature, is thoughtful and clever. While I support capitalism, I think that those who demonize communism as evil have never read and truly understood The Communist Manifesto.

Makes sense

Communism and Socialism are two different things, while Communism is a political system, Socialism is an economic system. Also, Stalin established a Totalitarian system so that probably swayed the USSR from the original communist idea.
