How and where communism came from, Marx's true ideas on the thoughts of communism.

Advice for students:
Stay on top of the reading. Don't get behind on it, because when it comes time to writing essays, you'll need to be familiar with every single example of the argument you choose in order to write an excellent paper. And teachers are tough. They won't accept fluff. You need to be VERY text-based. Paragraph structures should go something like this: Topic sentence, quote/explanation, quote/explanation, quote/explanation, quote/explanation, tie it into your thesis, end. And they need to be extremely relevant quotes, not just something you think sounds good.
