Who Is Karl Marx?

When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx believed he was offering a roadway to paradise, however almost everywhere his concepts were attempted, they caused disaster as well as mass murder. In this video clip, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, lights up the life of the mild-mannered 19 th Century German whose concepts caused the surge of several of one of the most ruthless tyrants in globe background.

And occasionally disastrous– like the concepts of KarlMarx Born in Trier, Germany in 1818, Marx really did not create communism. But it got on his concepts that Lenin as well as Stalin constructed the Soviet Union, Mao constructed communist China, as well as countless various other autocrats, from the Kims in North Korea to the Castros in Cuba, constructed their communist programs. Ultimately, those programs as well as activities calling themselves “Marxist” killed regarding 100 million individuals as well as shackled greater than a billion. Marx thought that employees, especially those that did manual work, were made use of by plutocrats– individuals that had, as Marx placed it, “the ways of manufacturing” (especially, manufacturing facilities)– however that did really little physical labor themselves. Only an employees’ transformation, Marx composed in Das Kapital, might fix this oppression. What would certainly that transformation appear like? Marx as well as his partner, Friedrich Engels, meant it out point-by-point in The CommunistManifesto It consisted of the “abolition of building as well as inheritance” as well as the “centralization of credit score, interaction, as well as transportation in the hands of the state.” And a whole lot much more along the exact same lines. In various other words, the state has as well as regulates practically whatever. This concept was commonly talked about as well as disputed in European intellectual circles throughout Marx’s life time, however absolutely nothing a lot resulted it up until Vladimir Lenin took power in Russia in1917 This altered whatever. Despite its repetitive financial failings, Lenin’s Russia, which ended up being referred to as the Soviet Union, ended up being the design for tyrants worldwide. Wherever Marx’s concepts were exercised, life became worse– not by a little; however by a whole lot. There is not a solitary exemption to this regulation. Not the Soviet Union, not Eastern Europe, not China, not North Korea, not Vietnam, not Cuba, not Venezuela, not Bolivia, notZimbabwe Wherever Marxism goes, financial collapse, horror as well as starvation adhere to. So, if tragic failing– implying horrible human suffering– is the unpreventable tradition of Marxism, why do so many individuals– as well as currently, particularly, youngsters– safeguard it? The most typical solution Marxism’s supporters supply is that “they”– whoever “they” are: Lenin, Stalin, Chavez– never ever truly exercisedMarxism They all in some way obtained it incorrect. Marxism, we are informed, is, at its significance, regarding sharing what we have: “From each according to his capacity, to every according to his demands,” as Marx placed it. Maybe that seems excellent to you. But what does it suggest? Who figures out capacity? Who figures out demand? For the full manuscript, see

Why are we even talking about marxism or commusim. We all know they are bad and dont make any sense.
The 'young' people you are talking about are supporting democratic socialism, similar to the systems in nordic countries.

Marx was a very dark skinned Jew. His friends referred to him as "the Moor". As such he had a hard time getting laid in Germany and felt discriminated against. So he channeled his frustration against "whitey" into his "destroy it all" philosophy…Communism. Communism attracts bottom of the gene pool losers because they are told they are victims oppressed by <fill in the group you want to attack>. Feminists are the prime example. These are women no male wants. And they want revenge for being born fat, ugly, and psychotic!!! What we see today is a plague of these rabid zombies who have taken over education, government, and the MSM. The Globalists are using them to achieve the NWO. But once NWO is in place, this wild pack of rabid zombies…will be eliminated. Because nobody really like them.

Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto published in the 19th Century and used its propagandized influence on his political ideology of the economic theory throughout the world. In the 20th Century, Communism ruled the world and it was utterly failed.
Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth published in the early 21st Century and uses its propagandized influence on his political ideology of global warming and climate change throughout the world. In the next century, global warming (climate change) ideology will rule the world and it will utterly fail.
Both cases have no viable scientific and political proof, and notorious data flaws. They corrupted politics, science and realism. Their orthodox views were grossly classic overstatement of their political theories. Both of these men were in a heightening of the climax era that influenced their minds to use their political advocates. It turns out to failure and becomes a realistic dystopian world. For example, Karl Marx was the witness to the industrial revolution in the mid-1800s with the massive working exploitation, horrid labor conditions, and mass poverty. That made him detested capitalism. Al Gore was the witness to the booming of world capitalism and its lifestyles in the late 20th Century what he believes that it caused the catastrophic damage to Earth’s climate.  Overpopulation, unsustainable high consumption, and pollution are the major issues, not climate change.

Anyone that tries to convince you that Marxism would work if were ‘done properly’, should be avoided in your life. In their own minds they would welcome the opportunity to prove it…by any means necessary…as long as they are not held accountable for whatever takes place during their takeover.

Are you still a fan of capitalism after the inequality ,slavery and Terrible government it has supported in trying to achieve its goal, which directly contradicts what democracy is. It's only after centuries and with the help of socialist ideas we have found balance in this reasonable young age of modern history.

A socialist revolution isn't happening in the near future, but I like to hope that long after I'm gone, we'll have done away with captialism and all its discontents, just like with feudalism and autocracy before it.

The only thing marxism does differently is that it changes location and brings more death and suffering to whomever is living in it. Marxism is a shitty idea on paper and a horrendous idea put into practice. Denying Marxism doesn't work because it's not "real Marxism" is ignoring the fact that it only cause more death and suffering every time it's been used. As if it just so happened to suddenly appear out of the blue.

It's like saying, salt water is not real water because it has salt in it. Even though it has been proven to be water.

Yes, but you need to remember that it wasn’t Marx’s intention to create such appalling dystopias.nIt’s like calling Nietzsche a Nazi because some of his ideas got posthumously deformed by the Nazis to fit their goals.

You may have beaten the USSR through economic and proxy warfare, but you have not the war. Socialism is more than any one state, socialism is an idea and ideas are bulletproof.

(NEW WORLD ORDER) Support, Socialist Dictator Chavez created a Socialist sponsored Economic Depression then Disarms Civilians in Venezuela to make sure the people couldn't fight back against the government if need be. / FROM THE ARTICLE: But increasing crime might just be a small side effect of the scheme. “We are witnessing a terrible reality: socialism always descends into tyranny. With the entire Venezuelan civilian population disarmed, Hugo Chávez can implement whatever policies he wishes,” Horn continued. “The government will be free to oppress its citizens without any real threat of opposition.”
Prior to the latest decree, infringements on the right to keep and bear arms in the oil-rich nation were already severe since Chávez took over, but the few citizens with a gun permit were allowed to freely purchase weapons for self-defense and other purposes. The new UN-backed measure, however, purports to prohibit the transfer of all arms and ammunition to civilians. 
Before the prohibition went into effect, the regime offered a sort of “amnesty” period for citizens to surrender their guns. Officials reportedly warned that failure to submit could result in house-to-house searches and arrests. 
All commercial gun stores and dealers were also officially declared illegal and were recently ordered to surrender their inventories to the regime. Meanwhile, military, police, and security personnel are exempted from the ban and may purchase weapons from the state-owned firearms dealership, according to “Justice Minister” Tarek El Aissami.    
“Nobody will be able to have new weapons or new permits,” El Aissami was quoted as saying by the state news agency. “The goal is to disarm the civilian population." Ironically, experts say many of the guns held by criminals in Venezuela were originally sold illegally by corrupt government officials, AFP reported. 
According to statistics cited by the anti-gun UN and the Chavez regime — which claimed to be responding to the global body’s concerns by banning firearms — Venezuela now has one of the highest murder rates in the world at about 50 per 100,000 people yearly. The U.S., by comparison, has less than one tenth of that number — and Americans are by far the most heavily armed people on earth.  
It was not immediately clear why the socialist regime thought that criminals who ignore murder and robbery laws would be inclined to obey a mere gun ban — or whether officials ever believed that at all. Other nations that have implemented civilian-disarmament programs, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, witnessed immediate and dramatic surges in gun crime.

To understand Marx its important to understand what he went through, he was a failed businessman, he obviously had charisma hence leeching of Engels but other wise a failure.

Marx had a very opinion of himself so he never failed it was the system, I bet he never did any manual labour himself and thought the poor were at best useful idiots.
