Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels predicted that one day countries would overthrow all governments and share equally. This was the building block for Russian rebels opposed to the Czar.

"Communism" goes back to primitive times when people lived in small groups or tribes. No one one owned any particular part of the land the tribe occupied. It was owned by the tribe and everyone worked the land and the produce was divided among the members of the tribe. Marx called this type of communism "primitive communism" and stated that it occurs at the "dawn of history of all civilized races."
