In this Article, there are many influences as to why a Cold war occurred. For example, during 1917 Karl Marx introduced the ideology of communism within the Russian society with a set of stages which was to eradicate the bourgeois  to make the social class all fair and equal. This theory influenced many Dictators such as Stalin who fought on the side of Communism in contrast to Capitalism which may have been one of the influential reason as to why tension grew between the superpowers  in the years 1939 and resulted in the cold war as the superpowers both had two conflicting ideologies that lead to the division within Europe.
