Right after ***** Second World War, a new war had pervaded humanity with the gradual dominance and spread ***** Communism in ***** Eastern Europe and Asian regions. Proposed as Karl Marx's program for the creation of a socialist society in the modern period, Communism ***** ga*****ed inspiration for countries who tried to veer away from the influence of the Western world, and adopt a ***** society that contradicts the principles of capitalism. Believing that indeed, capitalism has an inevitable propensity to create stratification *****d marginalization to specific groups in the *****, Eastern *****an nations formed ***** Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR or Soviet Union) in order ***** push through Marx's proposition ***** a socialist, Communist society be established.
