Quote: A specter is haunting Europe -- the specter of communism. by author Karl Marx overlaid on photo of photo of author Karl Marx with quote

A specter is haunting Europe -- the specter of communism.

Longer Version/[Notes]:

A specter is haunting Europe--the specter of Communism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this specter; Pope and Czar, Metternich and Guizot, French radicals and German police spies.

Two things result from this fact.

I. Communism is already acknowledged by all European powers to be in itself a power.

II. It is high time that Communists should openly, in the face of the whole world, publish their views, their aims, their tendencies, and meet this nursery tale of the Specter of Communism with a Manifesto of the party itself.
