The Communist Manifesto

Marx, Karl; Engels, Friedrich

Year Published:  1848  
Resource Type:  Book

Written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels as the theoretical and practical platform of the Communist League, a workers' association.

Abstract:  -

Marx and Engels write:

"The Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.

In all these movements, they bring to the front, as the leading question in each, the property question, no matter what its degree of development at the time.

Finally, they labour everywhere for the union and agreement of the democratic parties of all countries.
The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win."
