But what about the book?

I somehow get the feeling that most of the reviewers here aren't actually discussing the book and the argument presented within, but rather their own views on Communism as it has evolved over the century plus since Marx and Engels wrote the "Manifesto". But if that's their wish, then who might we be to stop it?

Please though, try to keep the vitriol to a lower level; there is nothing "evil" or "un-American" about people who sympathize with or are followers of the Communist ideology. Communism may be flawed (in fact it is greatly flawed) but no more so than capitalism. Civilization exists to remove the normal constraints of nature and substitute them with an artificial set of rules. One of these is Darwinism; in nature it applies, in society it doesn't. That's why we have society, to remove the animalistic need to fend for ourselves.

So before you condemn Communism as an ideology, perhaps reading this book would be helpful.

Just remember: in America, you hold political opinions; in Soviet Russia, political opinions hold you.
