The horrible problems created by capitalism that Karl Marx tried to fix in Europe have occurred again but in America after a decade since Marx first wrote his Communist Manifesto.

Marx who was born into a wealthy family was concerned about his European brothers and sisters suffering under the deplorable conditions created by Capitalism.

Two armed men who were desperate to pay for their grandmothers medical treatment robbed a midday money shipment that was being transported from an armored truck into a bank in Maryland.

The heist happened outside a Bank of America in Clinton, Md., a suburb of Washington, D.C.

The two men wore black masks and approached the victim from behind while he delivered the money to the bank. Both men were armed with shiny, silver hand guns to send a visual message to the guard that the situation was serious. The hand guns were small preventing any witnesses from taking notice as to what was occurring. The men apparently used a stolen white truck with as a getaway vehicle.

The police are reviewing surveillance video, but the plates on the truck show a stolen vehicle and the mask the men wore prevents any type of identification which can be shown to the public. The men didn't have any tattoos or marked clothing to help identify them to anyone in the public that may know them.

Authorities say if the two men don't tell anyone what they did or if they don't make a large deposit in a bank, the case will be classified as another cold case that sits in a file for the next four hundred years.

The police say that the suspects were professionals and most likely they would launder the money through a business venture to legitimize any large purchases they may make with the money.

Russia which abandoned a socialist society for capitalism is now experiencing an increase in crime and murder as thousands of desperate Russians turn to crime just to put food in their mouths while the rich squander Russia's resources on worthless material goods like a 35,000.00 silver paper holder from Tiffany & Co. Apparently a diamond ring is worth more than the life of a poor Russian whose children are forced to join the military and die in some politicians egotistical war. It was the Soviet oligarchy that mishandled society in Russia, causing the collapse of Russian's socialist system. Instead of improving socialism the Soviet leadership drove the people of eastern Europe back into the dark ages.
