Recent Soviet writings leave little doubt that the advancement of Communism still remains the supreme criterion of morality in Soviet ideology. Hatred of the class enemy—of capitalists as a class—continues to be regarded as one of the components of Soviet morality. Law is regarded by the Communists as an instrument by which the ruling class imposes its will on the community.
