A person new to the ideas of Karl Marx, the father of communism,

along with his industrial partner, Friedrich Engels, will have any

number of questions about communism. Perhaps the first one would be

why no dictatorship, saying they are on the road to communism,

never seemed to arrive there. Another key question would be that

why is all history based on class struggle when ideas concerning

nationalism and religion have also shaped world history. And, for

Marx, a certain set of social and economic circumstances were

necessary for the first stage of communism, the dictatorship of the

proletariat, yet the major "communist " revolutions in Russia and

China, did not fit the recipe laid out by Marx.
