Almost all of the key points in Marx’s communist manifesto is implemented by every single democratic country around the world. So why protest against capitalism? Capitalism is based on Marxism. One more thing, Karl Marx’s ideas were ripped off Adam Weishaupt. Please read the communist manifesto, for the love of God just read it. Right now, open a new tab and read it.
We know damn well in East of Europe what has brought Karl Marx (his real name Mordechai Levi) ideology to people: famine, slavery, a dictatorial system, a police state, no freedom of speech, movement, thinking and so on. Too bad his teachings weren’t put in force in West of Europe.
