Many myths and misconceptions are associated with the communist movement in which its history there were also many matters that went wrong or derailed, the same as in any other political movement, proving that it is all dependent on the people who lead it.
It’s a natural part of the struggle that the decadent bourgeoisie, the social order that is dominated by the so-called middle class, and its allies will resort to spreading lies about communism to prevent it from liberating the people, because those who have the power and want to gain money as much as they can do not want to share their wealth with others.
The entire leftist movement is shackled by what went wrong in the last century and by the power that the right-wing front has been gaining as a result of the difficulties capitalism has caused in (im)balancing the working class against the ruling class.
In nations from America to Brazil to the Phillipines, even on the European continent, workers have willingly elected openly right-wing leaders because of the type of misinformation several politicians and blog writers spread.
One cannot ignore how the world keeps changing constantly. Man has been looking for a way to control or master the masses for centuries. To this end, she has sought all kinds of means of subjugation instead of coming to it together in community for the community.
Those on top or having leadership shall not so easily give up their position. The capitalist class is not rich because its members “worked hard”, but because they exploited labour and used the workforce (the pool of human beings) as their means of gaining a lot. Capitalists can only be so rich when they exploit many workers. Capitalism rewards those who own means of production and labour-power, not those who work harder or better.
Provided capitalism is a system that promotes inequality and if the result is that there will always be struggle due to discontent, it comes down to striving for a better system where equality is paramount.
Marxist theory also explains that productive relations correspond with productive forces. It is metaphysics to think that a certain set of hierarchical structures, is to carry on forever. Every one of these social systems has its internal contradictions that are slowly but surely tearing it apart. Denial of this universal truth is nothing but metaphysics. With all the problems it creates throughout the world, capitalism isn’t anymore in the best interest of humanity. Adhering to the principles of historical materialism, we know that society will one day be able to achieve full communism.
Marxism–Leninism–Maoism isn’t fundamentally opposed to belief in human nature, but rather it works within human nature to transform our world into a better one.
The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggle
The Communist Manifesto, German Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei, (“Manifesto of the Communist Party”), pamphlet (1848) written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels to serve as the platform of the Communist League. It became one of the principal programmatic statements of the European socialist and communist parties in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
- The Communist Manifesto can broadly be divided into two parts.
1. Marx & Engels argue that the proletariats would emerge victorious in a battle with the bourgeoisie.
2. Marx & Engels stress what separates Communism from Socialism.

The Communist Manifesto is an embarrassing first choice for reviews. For all the studying about Marx during college, I managed to dodge this one. To top that, I ended up buying a copy published by a behemoth embroiled in an anti-trust case.
Written as a practical and theoretical tract for the Communist League in 1847, the Communist Manifesto can broadly be divided into two parts. In the first part, Marx and Engels argue that the proletariats would emerge victorious in a battle with the bourgeoisie. For them, it’s an evident march of history. Throughout time, every dominant class quite unwittingly makes the ground for its opponents to win. Against the feudal lords, the bourgeoise clinched their victory. Now it’s their turn to taste defeat.
In the second part, they stress what separates Communism from Socialism. After berating a variety of socialist doctrines, Marx and Engels portray socialism as either misguided…
