Today, the political “Left” in most western countries refers to the socialist (Marxist) political party. … By stripping off the original strictly atheistic foundation of Karl Marx’s theory, they have made Marxism more palatable to the west.
With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1990, many people seem to think the “Red Threat” is passed. Indeed, the likelihood of a third world war with China does not seem an immediate threat, barring some complication on the Korean peninsula, or over Taiwan. The other openly Marxist states don’t seem to pose much of a threat to the West.
