Communism and its role in Society Today
What is Communism and why is it hated so
The Communist Manifesto, a brainchild of Fredrick Engels and Karl Marx was written inLondon and has been reprinted in several languages. This political manifesto is a proclamation to the world as the infrastructure of communism and its benefits towardssociety. The document focuses mostly on the sewing together of the rift that separates proletariats from bourgeoisies.Over the past centuries, from the serfs to the guild-masters, from the peasants to the proletariats, there has always been an upper and lower class. In the eyes of today, that riftis less visible than ever, it is a dark web of deception spun over the otherwise obvious rift between the classes. Although not seen in public, throughout the minds and hearts of  people today, there is an obvious gap. A gap that has been there throughout the centuriesand one that will always be there, a rift so large and deep that no amount of sand in theworld could refill it, a rift widened by the serfs and peasants, a rift that today’sgovernment is trying to fix. This rift is the obvious difference between the upper andlower class, the bourgeois and proletariats, a battle of money, power and influence.On the 21
of February, 1848, a new revolutionary document was published; one that for the first time in history openly criticized this rift, this division. One of the first to providean actual alternative to the every increasing separation, that idea, the very one thatemerged simultaneously from the minds of two intelligent men, the same one that provided a new, unheard of system of distribution,
A certainly well-known power, Communism was until then, an undefined power,although alreay regarded in Europe as a power, Communism was not defined until therelease of the Communist Manifesto, the Manifesto was a document that proposed afrivolous idea, a plan to overthrow the bourgeois government and to eventually end upwith a classless, stateless society. The idea behind the actions was a simple one at that, asystem of equal distribution meant that there would be no brightline between rich and poor, everyone would be rich as long as everyone worked hard, the idea was plausibleenough and very attractive, however, this idea had numerous flaws and did not regard thetrue nature of human instinct. It did not, for a fact, take into account the laziness of human beings, it did not look to the actual governmentation at all, in order for such a perfect society to run, the people within it must be perfect; the idea of communism sits onthe presumption that people will, after learning of a definite income for all, proceed towork hard and gain money, again, although this idea is very attractive, it is unrealistic inthat it does not take into account human nature and again, would require a dictatorshipthat many of the people of that day did not trust, as the notions of despotism, a republicand democracy seemed to be the main things on people’s minds.In the real world today, we have all seen the results of communism, China and Russia,once great and powerful nations tried to convert into communism. The outcome at firstwas excellent and the whole world waited with held breath as the economy of China grewevery so slightly. Soon economy had gone beyond the predicted norm and the Chinese

What Keith said. I agree that state socialism (or state capitalism, as Trots and anarchists call it) was probably the worst idea ever, but apparently the author of this document has no deeper knowledge of communist philosophy if he takes labels like "communist state" (which in itself is a contradiction) at face value. To slag off a whole idea in under 2 pages of text is a joke.
