[Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei] Free ¼ Karl Marx

T is presented in this book is properly called Marxist Communism or Marxism But with only a ittle knowledge of history it is obvious that wherever classic Communism or Marxist Communism has ever been tried it has been a failure bringing want and misery rather than its stated goal of betterment for all The only ones who prosper under communism are the ones running the showtrue in any form of arge intrusive government however How do you tell a communist Well it s someone who reads Marx and Lenin And how do you tell an anti Communist It s someone who understands Marx and Lenin Ronald Reagan All animals are eual but some animals are eual than othersGeorge Orwell from Animal Farm Communism doesn t work Its ideals are perfectly understandable justifiable even but the way it seeks to attain them that s just terrible In reality communist policy falls apart or isn t fully followed The driving force is to achieve a classless rather than class based society Sounds good on paper doesn t it But in order to achieve such a thing the manifesto proposes a revolution that will wipe out private property This is than following the march of history Mankind has seen countless revolutions that have failed The Bourgeois ruling class is replaced by the Proletariats working class which then go on to form a new ruling class The difference with communism and why it will apparently succeed is that the new rising class will destroy ownership thus the cycle has been broken there will no onger be any class divides But what s eft A power vacuum and a new means to create wealth and ownership Then surely the system just begins anew Surely people just belong to the government even so than before Then there s the total The Recruiter lack of proof There are huge statements in this huge sweeping statements that suggest that worldwide communism will end all wars Isn t that slightly na ve What s to stop two opposing communist nations fighting over natural resources orand Nothing Communism isn t the answer to the world s problems And besides the manifesto initially advocates war to create a temporary class What kind of political party overtly advocates war death and human suffering It speaks of blood spilt over the ages wasted blood and then goes on to propose the shedding of Isn t this just a ittle hypocritical Sure some extremists may deem that a necessary cost but it s just another form of corruption Communism opposes the capitalist world on the idea that wealth is concentrated in the upper reaches of society That s true Capitalism obviously has many flaws but that s beside the point Communist rulers seek to grasp that wealth for the good of their people What do they then do with it They wage war covertly or overtly on the capitalist world and watch as their people starve But that doesn t matter right As ong as communism spreadsThis is a most interesting read And whist I obviously take issue with the politics I m glad I read it This is a product of history one that should be read and understood by all Penguin Little Black Classic 20 The Little Black Classic Collection by penguin The Mad Wolf's Daughter looksike it contains Hawkes Prey Sonny Hawke Thriller lots of hidden gems I couldn t help it theyooked so good that I went and bought them all I shall post a short review after reading each one No doubt it will take me several months to get through all of them Hopefully I find some classic authors from across the ages that may not have come across had I not bought this collection What can I say Marx was right Almost It is an error to assume that the problem with humanity is an inability to recognize our own problems While it s true that we constantly Get Over It Fab Life look outside for answers this is just because we are unhappy with the answers we have We know that success reuires hard work and knowledge but we want something easier We will accept an easier answer even when it isn t true We are not motivated by what is true orikely but by frightening or enticing storiesWe are driven away from the necessary and the difficult by our inadeuacies and fears and so rarely move ourselves any closer to fulfillment In a perversity of justice those who do achieve the things which we imagine would fulfill us wealth fame beauty genius are no fulfilled than the average man and just as beset by inadeuacy and fear Often soTranshumanism represents a hope that we can escape this pattern of ignorance and self destruction but only by escaping the human bodies and minds that cannot control themselvesThe Manifesto always seemed No

understanding of the economy and our role within it It is sad that a work which is ateast based on some worthwhile principles falls to the same simple *fears and ideals that plague our everyday

They did not expect that most of them would pick up Das Kapital and start really thinking about their role in things It was enough to engage their greed and sense of injustice without intruding much on their understandingThe average man does not want to understand he would prefer to believe It is unfortunate that the main effect proven by the Communist movement is that any and every political

review Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei

Read this and understand why your imperialist capitalist government spent the better part of a century playing hot potato with ICBMs invading and incinerating peaceful peasant countries and making your mom and dad piss themselves under school desks The elite were scared shitless and by no means would they allow their slaves errr abor force a fraction of freedom or euality or means to resist The 60 year propaganda campaign against Communism and the virtual disappearance of strong Professor Astro Cat's Human Body Odyssey labor unions prove thisMarx is downright bold in his call for the FORCIBLE OVERTHROW OF ALL EXISTING SOCIAL CONDITIONS In fact the Manifesto is a flat out demand that you go out and set shit on fire and that s cool enough for meOf course Marxism is flawed because any prick with enough power will undoubtedly exploit theittle guy bla bla blaThe point is maybe there is a better system based on real freedom instead of free trade Political power properly so called is merely the organised power of one class for oppressing another Karl Marx The Communist ManifestoVol 20 of my Penguin Little Black Classics Box Set To be clear I m not giving this 5 stars because I m a Communist just waiting start a revolution not that I m against a good revolution here or there I do come from a religious tradition that experimented in the 1800s with ideas of consecration and communalism They called it the United Order Even with a charismatic eader and t One word review disgusting There is so much I could say and there isn t the space to say it in a review Where do I even begin For starters the book began on a whining note There were basically two main thrusts first that free trade was so unfair to the poor proletariat second that the communistic movement had only the interests of the proletariat at heart It was unhindered by nationality or any other interests and existed solely to make the working class successfulWhat started out as a whining tirade coming from a man who obviously wanted to abolish free trade because it did not suit him as he wished ended with an abolition of family home education patriotism and marriageLittle sins ike self centeredness sloth and greediness if not repented of can What Is a Googly?: The Mysteries of Cricket Explained lead the heart to seek justification on its own The heart tries to justify itself before the cries of conscience by rationalizing and eventually developing a system consistent with itself and you end up with Sartre Nietzsche or Marx with ideas to make you shudderThe charges against Communism made from a religious a philosophical and generally from an ideological standpoint are not deserving of a serious examination That wasiterally the only thing said to those objections SeriouslyI came away with a ot of observations but three were especially notableMarx hoped that social change would change man s heart environmental determinismThe State the proletariat as an organized ruling classThe abolition of private property was number one on Marx s hit istThe ending note is one of the reasons I think Communism has such an appeal It offers purpose hope and excitement This is the only thing I sympathized with somewhat in the whole thing I am afraid that Christians have held sympathized with somewhat in the whole thing I am afraid that Christians have held an impotent 竹光始末 The Bamboo Sword And Other Samurai Tales limp and emasculated truncation of Christianity for tooong The human heart ongs for a higher purpose a kingdom a cause Christ Jesus King of Kings and Lord of Lords is the answer not communismThe Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims They openly declare that their ends can be attained only Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims They declare that their ends can be attained only by forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution The proletarians have nothing to ose but their chains They have a world to win WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES UNITE And so ends a despicable document Long overdue update 2013 I read this book five years ago and in almost every respect I have mellowed considerablyYou can read my review below It s unchanged You can read the comments below that Also unchangedI never seriously expected anyone to read this review much The Confusion: Books Four & Five of The Baroque Cycle lessove or hate it so strongly I am not apologizing for my view of the book or Marx He put his entire Mismatch life into this slender and influential book and I respect that I understand a bit about where he was coming from historically and it doesn t seem as inherently ridiculous as I might have claimed five years ago But I stillargely stand by my original take on it What Marx predicts is an oppressive totalitarian regime which would be able to commit all kinds of human rights abuses far too easily I m not OK with that And I don t think it works from a philosophical point of view mainly because I think it neglects the realities of human nature I think free market capitalism does the exact same thing though the end results are different Or are theyIt s funny People commenting here seem to think I m a proponent of free market capitalism I do consider myself a capitalist but not of the Going All the Way Planning for a Marriage That Goes the Distance lassiez faire varietyits track record is poor as far as I m concerned I m not Whereas on other posts and comment threads on this same site I ve been accused of being a socialist Now that s funnyAnywayDisclaimer I read this book with a heavy bias against Marxist thought That being said Iike to think of myself as a Test logiciel en pratique logical person so I have framed my thoughts asogically as possible instead of in the Communists are bad They just are Two Badges The Lives of Mona Ruiz line of reasoning That being saidThe spectre of Communism is still haunting the worldit has diedSuffice it to say that I was sorely disappointed with Marx s argument So much so that I fail to believe that anyone over the age of twenty one could take him seriously even on a theoretical basis Perhaps a ce. A rousing call to arms whose influence is still felt todayOriginally published on the eve of the 1848 European revolutions The Communist Manifesto is a condensed and incisive account of the worldview Marx and Engels developed during their hectic intellectual and political collaboration Formulating the principles of dialectical materialism they believed thatabor creates wealth hence capitalis. Ntury and a half of perspective is to blame Maybe I m missing a dimension of Marx s argument It could simply be that the manifesto is a by product of the industrial revolution that ooks uite silly in post industrial AmericaSumming up Marx in two sentences Class struggle is the defining injustice and condition of human society We the proletariat must rise up through a violent and sudden revolution and overthrow our capitalist oppressorsLet me get this straight We re going to overcome class struggle by perpetrating a class war against the bourgoisie If a major goal of communism is to eradicate social classes why does it temporarily aim to establish the proletariat as the ruling classOh right Becauase onc I finally read this even though someone gave it to me forever ago I think the ideas are interesting but I think this functions into explaining communist ideology in that historical period and for explaining the positioning in regards to other groups I would rather read about the idea of history as class struggle but expanded upon which seems The Structure of Biblical Authority like it could be an interesting framework or the themes of the inherent instability of capitalism that was being argued for I don t think I have the capacity to read Capital right now though I also read this because someone told me if I didn t read it I wouldn t understand Marx s ideas but I m pretty sure I had the grasp of them without this and this just supports my hypothesis that really I should never have to read source materials when I can just read summaries This tract by Marx and Engels is too enormous in implication to review fully in the smallittle space that GR allows so what I l do for now is take extracts from it and comment on them piece by piecePer the Maifesto Abolition of the family Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists On what foundation is the present family the bourgeois family based On capital on private gain In its completely developed form this family exists only among the bourgeoisie But this state of things finds its complement in the practical absence of the family among the proletarians and in public prostitution The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital Do you charge us with wanting to stop the exploitation of children by their parents To this crime we plead guilty But you will say we destroy the most hallowed of relations when we replace home education by social And your education Is not that also social and determined by the social conditions under which you educate by the intervention direct or indirect of society by means of schools etc The Communists have not invented the intervention of society in education they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention and to rescue education from the influence of the ruling class The bourgeois clap trap about the family and education about the hallowed co relation of parent and child becomes all the disgusting the by the action of Modern Industry all family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of abour Marx and Engels are here addressing a snapshot time of European history are here addressing snapshot in time of European history don t have much

Glücksbüro labor done by men women and children in mines and factories during the industrial revolution from around 1750 to the early 1900 s If you read up on reforms in Britain you will see that by about 1831 public outcries against childabor and the conditions that adults and children were made to work under in mines caused public commissions to be instituted by government which started a slow and gradual reform of conditions via Bodies in the Bog and the Archaeological Imagination legislation to the point that all kinds ofaborers are pretty well protected and well represented at the

it started off bringing such untold misery to so many also had the following effect average income and population began to exhibit unprecedented sustained growth In the two centuries following 1800
