HI Readers,

...

Guys , Karl Marx was a western Jewish intellectual henceforth his ideas are very much part of western philosophy.

Karl Marx's ideas were very much influenced by prior utopians like Jesus , Thomas More etc.

Thereby calling these communists as anti-western , signifies to me that most of you are in a denial of the entirely western nature of the communism.

Actually Communism is nothing but Christianity without the Christ.

Alike Christ it also calls for a Kingdom of heaven and end of the world albeit in different terms.

I think there are strong millenarian traditions behind Communism alike Christian evangelists. Like the evangelists , the communists also talk a lot about spreading their faith to all parts of this world.

So I believe Communism has a lot in common with Christianity in general and Evangelism in particular.
