Posted by saformo on 9 Diciembre 2012

SOCIALIST PHILOSOPHERS: Karl Marx and Friederich Engels developed communist social philosophy in the 19th century and it became a potent world in 1917, when the Bolsheviks took power in Russia and created the Sovietic Union.

COMMUNISM: is an economic and political system where the productions and economic methods are not controlled by private business but by the government, that is the community, for the benefit of all the people. In a communist regime people will work according to their abilities, in exchange they will be able to receive benefits from the society as they are contributing to build that perfect society. Then, when all the items of capitalism have been abolished, any government will be unnecessary, and the proletarian dictatorship starts.

SOCIALISM: socialism is as well and communist an economic and political system but unlike communism, in socialism the means of production and economy should be property of the state for the welfare of society. Socialism and communism were responses to the big inequality that existed during the XIX and XX century in Europe between the higher classes and the lower classes.
