As a result, socialism and communism, in particular, use government to suppress religion to such a degree as to leave the one true God out entirely.
The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property.
Over my career, I've reinvented myself numerous times. I covered the Pentagon, the State Department, and the CIA. I wrote about labor wars, trade wars and real wars. I chronicled a nuclear plant meltdown and the defeat of Communism. I co-founded a couple of media businesses.
Much of the conventional wisdom associated with Vietnam was highly inaccurate. Far from an inevitable result of the imperative to contain communism, the war was only made possible through lies and deceptions aimed at the American public, Congress, and members of Lyndon Johnson's own administration.

Here we were, corrupting all those Russians toward communism.
The 20th century was a test bed for big ideas - fascism, communism, the atomic bomb.
P. J. O'Rourke
Even under the most perfect Social Democracy we should, without Communism, still be living like hogs, except that each hog would get his fair share of grub.... Whilst we are hogs, let us at least be well-fed, healthy, reciprocally useful hogs, instead of--well, instead of the sort we are at present.
George Bernard Shaw
There are some who apparently feel that the fight for freedom is separate from the Gospel. They express it in several ways, but it generally boils down to this: Just live the gospel; there's no need to get involved in trying to save freedom and the Constitution or stop communism.... Should we counsel the people, 'Just live your religion - there's no need to get involved in the fight for freedom?' No we should not, because our stand for freedom is a most basic part of our religion.
Ezra Taft Benson
In the Soviet Union, capitalism triumphed over communism. In this country, capitalism triumphed over democracy.
We tried many times before to speed on the social revolution in Spain; attempted to stir up the feelings of the people and to raise the banner of Libertarian Communism.
I spent my life studying communism and Soviet systems.
Communism is Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country.
