What is Communism?
Communism grew through the minds of Karl Marx who loathed the idea of rich people owning everything. He believed that power should lie in the hands of the labor and society should base itself on equality. It formed as an opposition to capitalism. According to communism the means of production should be public property rather than powerful people owning them as private property. Communism believes in putting an end to the miseries and oppression that a labor often faces which working for someone and wages should be equally divided.
The world has known famous communist leaders like Mao Zedong of China, Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin of Russia, Fidel Castro of Cuba, they all were quite powerful rules even after being criticised by most of the world.
