Communism has many faces, and yet it also reduces to a single matter: the abolition of private property. For many, this alone is reason enough to oppose the establishment of a communist society. Do communists have any justification for their attempt to establish a society in which private property is to be abolished? I intend to discuss this question in only one limited context: in regard to the justification, if there is any, which serves Karl Marx in his work for the establishment of a communist society.
