Karl Marx saw in his time, a divide between two classes. The proletariat, those who in the industrial age could only survive by providing services, along with the bourgeois, those who made a profit from the toils of the proletariat. He derived that the root of society’s problems lay in the conflict between the two classes. So he designed a form of government to fix the problems of other systems.

His own Government sought to destroy any class division and instead put everyone on equal footing. State-owned businesses and property took away the means to reach above your fellow man. Marx saw that if the state which could remain above man, it could safely guide the population into a society where all benefit.

Theoretically, if you were to divide up the GWP (gross world product) amongst every living person, they would all be above the federal poverty line. While that is an idealistic situation, in the current world the implication would be extremely harmful. The change drastic change that would occur in the world’s economic powers would inevitably lower the GWP and the redistributed wealth would not successfully expand smaller economies as fast as the fall. For such a scenario the state of industrialization would have to be equal globally creating an equal playing field for the newly moved wealth.

Karl Marx was not the last to look to communism. Those who followed him created their own systems and countries. While all rooted in Marx’s original design communist states within recent memory work off of their own personal leaders.
