Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

But Karl Marx  himself in the Communist Manifesto writes that "communism abolishes ... all religion and all morality, rather than constituting them on a new basis".

Moreover, concerning Marx and Engels' dear baby called scientific socialism, it seems that
Modern socialism, on the other hand, is scientific. just as scientists arrive at their generalizations not by mere speculation, but by observing the phenomena of the material world, so are the socialistic and communistic theories not idle schemes, but generalizations drawn from economic facts.

Scientific socialists apply the inductive method. `They stick to facts. They live in the real world and not in the spiritualist regions of scholasticism. The society we are striving for differs from the present but by formal modifications. Indeed, the society of the future is contained in the present society as the young bird is in the egg. Modern socialism is as yet more of a scientific doctrine than of a political party creed
