As early as the protestant reformation people were "theorizing" about communal living. It wasn't anti capitalist for sure, capitalism wasn't yet a glimmer in Smiths eye. Be that as it may, Marx didn't create his theory in a vacuum, or maybe he did I don't know. If he did he developed his ideas in parallel with other thinkers across the ages.
For sure Marx is the great one. Communism wouldn't be much at all without him. Unfortunately for the author Communism is a lot more than Marx now. There have been tons of influential Marxist thinkers across a wide variety of disciplines. Marx may be the father but his theories have grown a bit over the interceding decades. It's ok to disagree with Marx on some points and still be a Communist.

It's too bad, I had been calling my senator to urge the full release of these documents, but oh well. Threats made against people involved in the case probably didn't help.
Haha, he's so famous, how were they so clueless?
