Politics & Philosophy by Dr. Martin D. Hash, Esq.
The basis of Marxism is egalitarianism. Karl Marx offered some technical ideas on how to achieve that goal, but Marx wasn't a philosopher, he relied on past philosophers, specifically the Bible; for example:
Proverbs 11:24 There is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want.
Acts 2:44-45 All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.
Acts 4:34-35 For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.
Exodus 16:16-18 This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Everyone is to gather as much as they need." The one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little. Everyone had gathered just as much as they needed.
Those scriptures do describe Communist ideology, but Acts 11:29 is the smoking gun: “Every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren,” is close enough for copyright infringement. Copyright infringement is the use of style & substance of a work, and knowledge of it: Marx's obvious contact with the Bible, combined with the way-to-similar translation of "from each according to his ability to each according to his need" is too coincidental not to be intentional. Marx was obviously a plagiarist.
