Context : KarlMarx

Quora Answer : Jesus wanted followers to be peaceful, while Karl Marx wanted his to commit genocide. So why the hell do people compare them as the same kind of person?

Nobody compares them as the same kind of person.

They weren't.

If we judge Jesus by the Bible his main focus was subservience and loyalty to God and telling people to quietly wait and bear their troubles until God rewarded them after death.

Whereas Marx preached that people should rise up and be the authors of their own emancipation in this life.

That doesn't mean that Marx wanted anyone to commit genocide. That word has a specific meaning and what Marx was advocating wasn't it.
