I know this is rather obvious and I apologize if people already know this. Karl Marx stole communism from Wall Street.
Marx looked at the community, public, ownership of corporations called "stock investing" and he thought, "hey, it would be good if everyone was an equal stock holder in everything."
That was bad for the communist stock holders in Europe because if everyone owned stock in everything they couldn't exploit anyone, so, they told the proletariat, common people, that communal ownership of property, what they were doing in their small groups, was evil! For everyone except them.
And some people believed them and even today think the public ownership of resources and the means of production is evil, except when rich people, like Wall Street Robber Barons, do it and then it is okay!
