Creation of Communism

The idea of communism was first started by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles with the publishing of the Kommunist Manifetso in 1848. Marx and Engles believed that countries should revolt against the government and business owners who treated them unfairly. With full power to the people, a classless society would be established with equality for all.
