The Communist Manifesto

    Leonardo Larahas quoted14 days ago
    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 communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.

    Owing to the extensive use of machinery, and to the division of labor, the work of the proletarians has lost all individual character, and, consequently, all charm for the workman.

    The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.
    Lex Candelariahas quoted3 years ago
    Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labor of others by means of such appropriations.
    Lex Candelariahas quoted3 years ago
    In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.
    Lex Candelariahas quoted3 years ago
    Hitherto, every form of society has been based, as we have already seen, on the antagonism of oppressing and oppressed classes.

    The proletariat, the lowest stratum of our present society, cannot stir, cannot raise itself up, without the whole super incumbent strata of official society being sprung into the air.
