Communism Quotes

Communism is the anti-thesis of capitalism. Communism advocates common ownership and a stateless society as against private ownership and profit, which are the basis of capitalism. This economic theory was first propounded by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. What has been portrayed of communism in theory has rarely been successful in practice. The concept of communism was made to remove inequality and to deliver the basic necessities of health, education and employment to the citizens. This concept Is not practical as it hampers personal growth of the individual, leads to dictatorship and does not give financial freedom to the people.
