Communist Party of Czechoslovakia Vs Communism in Vietnam

The term "communism" was first coined and defined by the French philosopher and writer Victor d'Hupay in his “ Projet de communauté philosophe” (Project for a Philosophical Community) book. In his book, he defined this lifestyle as a "commune" and advises to "share all economic and material products between inhabitants of the commune, so that all may benefit from everybody's work". In 1848, Marx and Engels offered a new definition of communism and popularized the term in their famous pamphlet “The Communist Manifesto” which later was recognized as one of the world's most influential political documents.
