    The immediate aim of the Communist is the same as that of all the other proletarian (working class) parties: formation of the proletariat into a class, overthrow of the bourgeois supremacy, conquest of political power by the proletariat. . . . All property relations in the past have continually been subject to historical change consequent upon the change in historical conditions. . . . The distinguishing feature of Communism is not the abolition of property generally, but the abolition of bourgeois property. But modern bourgeois private property is the final and most complete expression of the system of producing and appropriating products, that is based on class antagonisms, on the exploitation of the many by the few. In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition  (get rid of )of private property.

    The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith  "Some of the best English writers upon commerce (trade) set out with observing, that the wealth of a country consists, not in its gold and silver only, but in its lands, houses, and consumable goods of all different kinds. In the course of their reasonings, however, the lands, houses, and consumable goods seem to slip out of their memory, and the strain of their argument frequently supposes that all wealth consists in gold and silver, and that to multiply those metals is the great object of national industry and commerce." According to Adam Smith, some people forget what in determining the wealth of a nation?
