The Communist Manifesto

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 30, 2018 – Rowson (The Wasteland), a political cartoonist whose scabrous style can be traced right back to Ralph Steadman, has produced a funny and nightmarishly dark graphic adaptation of communism's foundational document. Rowson reimagines the book as a kind of lecture, with the bearded authors Marx with a cigar in his hand and a cynical smirk on his face, Engels holding a great red flag yet to be unfurled strolling through a hellish landscape in which demonic steampunk machines grind up hapless proletarians into grist for the capitalist mill. At one point, Marx lectures in a "Kapitalist Komedy Club" open-mic night. Though the backdrops, with their Pink Floyd's The Wall aesthetic, can distract, this adaptation admirably boils down Marx's history lessons and luridly illustrates the warning that the bourgeoisie class produces "its own grave-diggers." While the book takes Marx's assumptions about the inevitability of a vast proletarian uprising at face value, it also includes a wry coda on the aftermath of Marx-inspired revolutions. The result is a jauntily irreverent but fundamentally serious take on a vastly influential political work.

Point Of view

In terms of the writing, it is decent. He is point of view is out dated, but it is quite interesting to see that his believe changed the world so drastically.

MR

I can't believe how close Marx and angels came to predicting a society dominated by the bourgeoisie, a materialized society. However, our society resolved the massive class gap, with welfare and egalitarian democratic socialism

Simply timeless.

Without sincere, caring individuals like Marx, Noam Chomsky, and the millions whose voices will never be heard as wage-slaves crushed under the multinational corporate socialism state (add 'police' before 'state' if you desire) marketed to the world as 'democracy and capitalism' as they drain your money, and anyone else in the lower 99.8% of the economic class structure. Pyramid scheme? Yes. Working great for .2% of the world's people? Yes. Destroying America? Yes. Remember, Marx is not Stalin nor Lenin. His visionary world of peace and harmony is quite capable of existing, but to the western world -- especially the US -- a commie is a commie is a commie. Why? Because they need you to believe it...
