The Communist Manifesto

The Communist Manifesto Summary

It has since been recognized as one of the world's most influential political manuscripts. Commissioned by the Communist League, it laid out the League's purposes and program. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle (historical and present) and the problems of capitalism, rather than a prediction of communism's potential future forms.

A must read5 star

To understand the thought process, this is a must read for any student for life. Some thoughts written back in the day ring so true to this day.55


Not a good instruction manual1 star

It’s just 8 pages as the actual instructions and 56 pages explaining the backstory and reasons for the instructions.15


Must Read Book1 star

This book by Karl Marx properly explains communism. Marx is one of the Fathers of Communism. The reason why I give it one star, is because it was written by a raving lunatic.15

Good ol'

Don’t diss dead people haters5 star

A (couple) words to those who are dissing the CM and it’s ideologies and worshipping capitalism in its place: The US and other first world countries have all some aspect of socialism in their government. Why else would we have weekends (didn’t exist until USSR since too many workers were leaving the country due to the sheer madness of their bosses) healthcare (didn’t exist until USSR also) and 8 hour workdays (previously 14-18 hrs)? The CCC, invented by president Roosevelt that saved the country from the Great Depression was a clearly socialist idea! If you are to understand capitalist and/or communism as a intellectual, this book is a must read. BTW in my personal opinion this book is bloody fun with all the blood gore and explosions and stuff. Even though I hope that communism comes peacefully. Please don’t arrest me🥺🥺🥺🥺55


My Critique On ‘The Communist Manifesto’1 star

The Communist Manifesto belongs in the rat-infested garbage cans of the ash heap of history. His concept may have worked back in the 1800s, but I would argue that it wouldn’t work in today’s society because land is more of a commodity now than it has ever been. On the basis of religion, millions of people around the world embrace some sort of religion as a means of reliance and comfort. Even though Marx was an atheist, religionists back then would not want to follow his economic idea because communism blocks out all religions. To be more specific, communism is an atheist theory. I think Marx was a relatively smart person, but he should have cited newspapers in his manifesto to back up his radical claims with hard and logical evidence so that way future generations could determine if he is more right or wrong. He uses a lot of historical facts and examples to plead his opinion, but I think he could’ve gone more since what he wrote was a political and economic doctrine that is very popular today. Overall, I would be lying if I said he didn’t have a strong opinion, because he did and he seemed to have succeeded in naming out the flaws of capitalism in his work.15


Failed Philosophy1 star

Recorded history has continued to show this ideology for what it is; riddled with envy & destined to impoverish mankind. The CM is not an economics book. It’s a philosophy book. A philosophy that has proven to be a disaster. If you embrace it it’s unlikely you understand the history or consequences of it15

Very hot reeder

The Communist Manifesto5 star

Very nice, would like to read the sequel of this book, though.55


Great ideology however Marx himself is dated4 star

When reading this book one could easily see his predictions and laugh after all Germany did not fall to communist revolution and we still live in a bourgeois society. But it is important to know that Marx lived in a radically different time and that he was not a prophet, basically read for the theory but know that he is from a different time.45
