The Rise of Communism

In history, the rise of Communism must be seen in the wider context of global economic culture prevalent during early 19th century. Capitalism had reached a stage where it is today where there is a gap, not just between haves and have nots as individuals, but also between entire nations. There are \’have nations\’ and \’have not nations\’. The nuclear element compounds the problem by introducing another element that further exposes the lawlessness and arbitrariness of human beings. We have not really come far as a race. This kind of situation is ripe for revolutions. That is what led to the Russian Revolution. Luckily, democracy takes the steam out of masses\’ frustration by changing unpopular political regimes. In a monarchy this is not possible, hence, overthrowing is necessary. If you look at it more deeply you will find that Democracy is just veiled Communism and Capitalism is disguised Plutocracy. Democracy is Communism\’s balancing power against Capitalism.
