Publisher's Summary

Without question one of the most significant books in modern history, The Communist Manifesto is a brief, populist pamphlet that distils the core ideas of communism into accessible prose. Published just months before violent uprisings threatened to destabilize much of the European establishment, it outlines a view of history as a constant battle between the classes that will inevitably result in revolution. An angry call for a stateless world where the workers are no longer exploited, its depiction of the remorseless nature modern capitalism is as alarming and striking now as it was in 1848.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

The Charter of Modern Day Society

The only reason I gave this audiobook 5 stars is to entice people into buying it to realise that this manifesto governs the very way we live and how conceive our reality. The ownership of private property today is rare today, property is owned by the banks which are governed by Marx's proposed central banks. Bankers made up a large portion of the bourgeoisie around the time of the manifestos publication. This manifesto is self contradicting and the work of a devil's advocate, Marx proclaimed that if God does exist his soul was taken out of hell and assigned to him. Abolition of religion and abolition of family? Really? This guy has influenced how knowledge should be perceived, no wonder why we live in a hell disguised as a paradise.

Though sometimes hard to understand I loved it. Capitalism keeps the rich alive and kills the poor

Incoherent nonsense

Straight from the horse's mouth. It's a must read for anyone unironically calling themselves a communist.
