What is Communism?

Today's Maurin

Communists believe in capturing the State so as to be able to use it as a club to prevent anybody from becoming a Capitalist.

The Communist manifesto defines Communism as “a state of society” where each one works according to his ability and gets according to his needs.”

Using the power of the State will enable Communists to prevent anybody from becoming a successful Capitalist but it will not make anybody Communist at heart.

To be a Communist according to the definition of the Communist Manifesto is to be willing to give one’s labor for the benefit of a Communist Community.
