Spectre Turned Ogre (A Systematic Expose of Communism)

Vaasamoorti (Author)

The writer, like most young men, was in the beginning fascinated by the communist idea. Being a book lover, he went through some literature on the subject. He developed some doubts. He studied deep into the subject. Now he had more questions on the concept of communism itself, materialistic determinism, the bed-rock of communism, Marxist use of the Dialectics, the theory of surplus value, the wide divergence between the theory and practice, and the mouthing of sham and hollow ideals etc. All these questions are placed before the reader along with the factual material that led to these questions for his own judgement. The present work was actually the third part of a bigger book, 'The Age of Intelligence', on the role of intelligence as the main constituent of human progress. The third part was published earlier under the title, Marxism: Relevance and Practice. The present book is an enlarged version with more relevant material.
