    Both philosophies are omnipotent. Both offer rewards for a defined 'right' conduct. Both offer damnation for a defined 'bad' conduct. Both require a blind or faith following. Both deny individual freedom and both demand a controlled collective mentality. Both "Command" a submissive conduct under threat of punishment. Marxism is religion under the guise of atheism. Religion is Marxism under the guise of religion. Freedom on the other hand is contained in The Bill of Rights.

      Marxism is a phiosophic writing written by Hegel & promoted by Marx
      "each according to his ability each according to his neeeds."  he saw 8 year old children working in and getting injured in cotton mills in Yorkshire whilst their owners went shooting on their vast mansioned estates....

        The problem here is; who defines ones abilities and needs?

      I'd say both are very similar in that they come in a wide variety of versions, some sillier than others, some downright sensible on balance, some totally unworkable, and some disastrous for all concerned.

      interesting title, although maybe it should read, what is the difference between religion and marxism. not all concepts of god are religious. some refer to god as a universal force or presence, not necessarily a defined entity who punishes.

      any kind of 'ism' is a doctrine or belief system which is what religion is.

    One has the ability to send you to either heaven or hell (God).  The other is already in hell with ya (Marx).
