In 1848, and together with likeminded fellow citizen
Friedrich Engels, Karl Marx published The Communist Manifesto.

The pamphlet was first written in German and hence titled Das Manifest der Kommunistischen Partei.

 

Karl Marx had a bone to pick with class struggle, especially bourgeoisie vs. proletariat.

And so it reads in his Manifesto,

"The history of all hitherto existing human society is the history of class struggles.

The fall of the bourgeoisie and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable.


Here you can
read The Communist Manifest online and for free.

 

Karl Marx was a sociologist. His parents were Jewish. His father German, his mother Dutch.

In 1867, Das Kapital (Capital) was ready to be read by the world.
