And yes Marx and Engels weren't ravenous monsters ,but inadvertently or not, they wrote the template that allowed histories greatestabomination to occur, communism.
the greatest abomination? please tell me you are kidding or just not versed in history...communism is a great idea in practice, except that in practice it is always guaranteed to fail. Read the manifesto if you haven't whichseems to be the case here, Marx/Engels have good ideas and alot of them are actually incorporated in current day welfare and assistant programs that aid people that are less fortunate.

Anyway, this isn't the place for it but i was ghastly shocked at these comments.
